Unfortunately, there are plenty of gamer’s who have not heard about or experienced Capcom’s Dragon’s Dogma. In promotion of the game, an exclusive new demo for PlayStation 3 owners will feature the game’s Prologue, access to the in-depth character customization screen before the player embarks on a quest to defeat the mighty Hydra and deliver one of its three heads to the castle. Just as it was with the original demo, players will be able to carry their character’s save data into the full retail game. The demo will be available from August 15th in Europe and on August 21st in North American .
Additionally, starting on August 9, players will be able to participate in a new competition being held on the Pawn Community website, “The Gran Soren Times”. Players will be able to submit in-game screenshots taken using the photo sharing feature in Dragon’s Dogma into three different categories: “The Fairest Maidens”, “The Most Dashing Gentlemen”, and “The Most Unique Myrmidons”.
