PlayStation Plus’ latest freebie is perfect for fans of Dark Souls and Resident Evil, offering them something fun to try.
Every month we look forward to new additions being made available through Sony’s PlayStation Plus subscription service, and this month is no different! Sony have once again promised us exciting titles this month that can only be found here!
Recently, Sony revealed their November 2023 lineup of games for PS Plus Extra and Premium subscribers in November. While everyone may find something to like about these offerings, some subscribers deemed this month the “worst month” ever for PS Plus – not unreasonable when we all have our individual preferences to consider!
Though PlayStation Plus November 2023 doesn’t score many hits, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some gems worth discovering in there – one such gem being Capcom’s fantasy RPG Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen developed and published by Capcom; being quite different genre-wise it will appeal to Resident Evil fans as well as Dark Souls enthusiasts.
Capcom announced Dragon’s Dogma 2 back in 2021 and planned for it to use its in-house RE Engine that also powers recent Resident Evil games. Though its progress remained quiet until earlier this year when we got a taste of gameplay with Dragon’s Dogma 2, including Dark Arisen on PS Plus seems like the perfect way to catch up.
“Cassardis village is attacked by an undead dragon who kills anyone who attacks it; when one such attacker attempts to strike out at it with weapons of their own against Dragon, the latter takes their heart in return, marking them as one of those chosen as Arisen to face down and stop its imminent arrival and an impending apocalypse,” reads a synopsis for this game. “Only one survives this, making them Arisen who must battle to stop its destructive influence and delay its arrival; one who must defeat it before Apocalypse arrives!.”
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is an action RPG set in an open world filled with dangerous enemies and mythical beasts, offering players various character classes like Assassins, Fighters, Magians, Magic Archers Mystic Knight Ranger Sorcerers Strider and Warrior for exploration in this vast universe.
Owing to its initial release over 10 years ago in 2012 and subsequent port to other platforms, RPG fans should investigate this underrated title, especially those subscribing to PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium tiers. While not as difficult as FromSoftware titles (at least on Easy or Medium settings), Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen should still provide enough challenge for Soulsborne enthusiasts.
Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen can now be played across PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox and Nintendo Switch platforms. Dragon’s Dogma 2 does not yet have an exact release date but is expected to launch around 2024 for PC gamers, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and Nintendo Switch users.
