3. Does Dragon’s Dogma 2 have multiple endings?

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Completion Guide - How Long it Takes To Beat

Akin to its predecessor, Dragon’s Dogma 2 contains multiple endings that depend on the decisions taken by the players throughout the main campaign. Currently, there are three known endings to the game:

  • Good Ending: Defeat the Dragon during the main quest ‘Legacy’ and accept the throne.
  • Bad Ending: Choose to not face the Dragon and run away during the main quest ‘Legacy’.
  • True Ending: Defeat the Dragon, speak to The Pathfinder, stab yourself with the Empowered Godsbane Blade, and escape the cycle.

Out of these three endings, the True Ending opens up new areas to explore, new quests, and side activities to complete, and new bosses to defeat. However, the catch is that you’ll be on a timer, and when it runs out, a red fog will eat up the map and force you to summon The Dragon to go back to the normal world.

6. About Dragon’s Dogma 2

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is a 2024 action role-playing video game developed and published by Capcom. The sequel to Dragon’s Dogma (2012), the game was released for PlayStation 5, Windows, and Xbox Series X/S on March 22, 2024. Upon release, it received positive reviews from critics. Gameplay Dragon’s Dogma 2 is an action role-playing game played from a third-person perspective.

The player takes on the role of a character called the “Arisen”, a hero marked by a dragon whom they must defeat. The player explores the world they live in, taking on quests, and fighting monsters, while being caught up in a geopolitical conflict between two kingdoms. To assist in this, the Arisen relies on allies called “Pawns”, non-playable characters who join the player’s party.

These characters are AI-controlled, but function like player-controlled avatars, able to assist in fights, provide information on enemies, and give guidance to active quests. Players can each create and customize their avatar and their own Pawn character with different genders, appearances, and race. In addition, players can recruit two additional Pawns that have been created by other players.
