Dragon's Dogma expansion Dark Arisen will be released on April 23 in North America and April 26 in Europe, Capcom has announced.
The budget-priced Dark Arisen will retail for €29.99/£19.99/$39.99 and include the main game and additional content. It will be offered in both physical and digital versions, but the latter will only be available on the PlayStation 3 at launch. An Xbox 360 Games on Demand version of Dark Arisen will be made available in the summer, reports Capcom.
Dark Arisen is the promised 'major expansion' for Dragon's Dogma which Capcom announced last year, offering a new environment with over 25 additional enemies, 100 bits of equipment including high-level weapons and armour, augments and increased customisation options. Players will also be able to select the original Japanese audio.
Dark Arisen will also include improvements to the general gameplay experience, such as easier travel and a refined menu, and will allow players to bring across their pre-existing Dragon's Dogma save.
Anyone who already owns Dragon's Dogma will receive 100,000 Rift Crystals, unlimited Ferrystones, and the Gransys Armour Pack which features six new costumes.
Capcom has already said it is "favourably considering" a full-blown sequel to Dragon's Dogma.
