Unleash Your Inner Dragon Rider in "Dragon's Dogma 2: A Map to Rule Them All!"

Ladies and gentlemen, hold onto your swords and prepare for an epic adventure because Dragon's Dogma 2 is storming onto the scene, bringing with it all the elements that made the original game a cult classic. Get ready for swanky fantasy abilities, janky ragdoll physics, and the timeless thrill of climbing on top of monsters that are ten times your size. But that's not all! In a bid to accommodate these colossal foes, the sequel unveils a map of epic proportions, expanding the world like never before.

Recently, tantalizing clips from the Taipei Games Show 2024 emerged on the game's dedicated subreddit, showcasing an off-screen view of the game's gargantuan world map. Although only a tiny section of the map is filled in, as the cursor zooms out and sweeps across the vast grayed-out areas, you can't help but marvel at the sheer scale of this awe-inspiring realm.

But wait, there's more! A couple of months ago, we caught glimpses of Dragon's Dogma 2's map in other snippets. However, it's important to note that these videos only revealed the deserts, forests, and mountains that dominate the surface. Once we factor in the labyrinthine caverns, enigmatic wells, and treacherous dungeons, the landmass of the sequel could expand even further, leaving adventurers with a world so immense that it defies imagination.

Now, I understand your concern. With a plethora of elongated RPGs hitting the market in rapid succession, such as Like A Dragon: Infinite Wealth, Persona 3 Reload, and Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, the news of Dragon's Dogma 2's colossal size might seem overwhelming. After all, who has the time for five different 100-hour journeys? But fear not, brave souls, for I have news that will set your worries at ease... or maybe not.

Prepare yourself for a revelation: Dragon's Dogma 2 is boldly steering away from your traditional fast travel options. Yes, you heard it right! You won't be able to blink across the map for the sake of convenience. Now, you might be scratching your head, wondering why this would make me more excited for the sequel. Well, let me explain. Director Hideaki Itsuno revealed that the team has poured their hearts and souls into designing a game where unexpected encounters and thrilling events await you at every corner.

"Travel is boring? That's not true," Itsuno boldly declared. "It's only an issue because your game is boring. All you have to do is make travel fun." Harsh words, perhaps, but there's truth in them. It's a concept that harks back to the days of Red Dead Redemption 2 or the exhilarating traversal in Sunset Overdrive. Simply moving through spaces can be just as satisfying as making "proper progress." And if Dragon's Dogma 2 can fulfill its promise of captivating discoveries and exhilarating traversal, then the vastness of its map becomes an adventure in itself.

So, my intrepid adventurers, get ready to soar on the wings of dragons, traverse treacherous terrains, and stumble upon unexpected encounters. Dragon's Dogma 2 beckons you to explore a world of unprecedented scope and embark on a quest that will test your mettle and ignite your imagination. It's a realm where every step holds the promise of something extraordinary, where the line between journey and destination blurs into an exhilarating adventure.

But that's not all! If you're hungry for more details about the Shadow of the Colossus-style bosses that await you, fear not. GamesRadar has a tantalizing preview of Dragon's Dogma 2 that will leave you yearning for more.

So gather your party, sharpen your blades, and steel your resolve. Dragon's Dogma 2: A Map to Rule Them All is about to transport you to a world where legends are born, monsters roam, and epic tales unfold. Get ready to stake your claim in this vast, untamed realm and leave your mark on history. The time has come to unleash the dragon within and forge your destiny in the fires of adventure. Are you ready?
