The latest issue/episode of the Dragon's Dogma digital comic details the narrative justification for the game's "pawn" system, which allows players to borrow NPCs from another user's single-player game. Obviously, that involves giant glowing rocks and murdered people in front of castles.
From the creators behind some of Capcom’s best action games, including the critically acclaimed Resident Evil 4 and Devil May Cry 4, comes their next opus, Dragon’s Dogma. Set in a huge open world, Dragon’s Dogma is a unique action experience that blends exciting and fulfilling combat with the freedom to explore and interact in a rich, living and breathing world. With your party of three you set out on an epic adventure to track down and destroy a mysterious dragon. Along the way you’ll encounter some of the biggest and baddest beasts ever to roam the land, and only skilful play and tactical teamwork can save the day.
