Capcom has revealed a new menacing enemy that players can encounter in Dragon’s Dogma which releases later this month. The Ur-Dragon is a group kill enemy that players and their pawns can team up to tackle, here’s the description offered up on the Capcom Blog…
Legend tells of an immensely powerful creature that appears in the Everfall beneath Gran Soren. The creature is known as the Ur-Dragon, and it bears strength too great for one combatant.
The Ur-Dragon encounter in Dragon’s Dogma will take the form of an asynchronous, ongoing online encounter, where players and their parties from around the world can compete online to take down the Ur-Dragon. The effect and damage done by of each of these parties will be combined until the creature is defeated. This will take multiple encounters, but all players who inflict damage on the Ur-Dragon will receive great spoils. The person who inflicts the final blow will receive the greatest reward of all, and all slayers of the Ur-Dragon will have their names and play times recorded in the hall of fame for bragging rights. Meanwhile, offline players will still be able to take on the Ur-Dragon alone, but will receive different rewards at the end.
Dragon’s Dogma is set for release on May 22nd in North America and May 25th in Europe on XBOX 360 and Playstation 3.
