We have a love\hate relationship with release date confirmations. On one hand, it’s “confirmed” but on the other hand there’s no guarantee that date is firm. Still though, we take every announcement with a giddy amount of glee. So here we have another one, this time for Capcom’s upcoming new IP, Dragon’s Dogma. Coming this May, the 22nd to be precise, Dogma is a new action game set in the olden days when dragons and danger lurked around every corner. Fight for your life, fight for freedom, fight for blood!
DD looks cool and might actually be a fun game to play but it’s more than likely going to sell like hotcakes with the announced inclusion of the Resident Evil 6 demo. Much like Crackdown and its Halo 3 beta, Dragon’s Dogma will bring along a demo for a hotly anticipated sequel. But there is a catch, the demo won’t be available until July 3 and only for those who plunk down cash for the Xbox 360 version. If you happen to rock the PS3, you have to wait until September 4th before you can tag in on the bite-sized playthrough.
Interested? Hit the break to check out the full press release from Capcom and watch the new trailer showcasing some of the story. Will the inclusion of the RE 6 demo affect whether or not you grab this new franchise from Capcom? Sound off in the comments!

Xbox 360® Purchasers to Get Early Access to Resident Evil®6 Demo
Dragon’s Dogma introduces an innovative team system to the genre. Known as Pawns, these three AI partners fight independently, demonstrating prowess and ability they have developed based on traits learned over time from the player and their actions. By utilizing the Xbox LIVE online entertainment network or PlayStation®Network, players will journey to the Rift where they can share their own Pawns with friends and be rewarded with treasure, knowledge of the world and strategies for taking down enemies. Conversely, players can borrow friends’ Pawns with the specific skills or experience required to tackle a particular quest. In addition, Dragon’s Dogma will ship with thousands of ready-made Pawns for players to pick their allies offline.
For those wishing to reserve their day one copy of Dragon’s Dogma, the following pre-order initiatives will be available:
GameStop is offering the ‘Pawn Upgrade Pack’ which will give players additional Rift Crystals allowing them to rent higher level experience Pawns from the outset.
The ‘Armor Upgrade Pack’ offered through Best Buy and the ‘Weapon Upgrade Pack’ from Amazon.com will deliver higher level armour and weapons respectively giving players a real advantage when tackling the toughest of enemies. Please check local retailers for details.
Furthermore, Capcom will be supporting Dragon’s Dogma post launch with a comprehensive suite of downloadable content including additional quests as well as weapon and armour upgrades.
