Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen will be available for $29.99 (£24.99) on Steam and also on-disc at retailers.

One of the major downsides of Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is that it, very unfortunately, doesn't feature the outstanding title theme from the original release. It is unclear whether Capcom has remedied this very serious issue for the PC version.

In January 2015, Capcom announced Dragon's Dogma Online, a new free-to-play version entry in the series that will be supported by microtransactions. Although it is expected for release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC, it is currently Japan-exclusive.

The Dragon's Dogma Online development team includes Ace Attorney veteran Minae Matsukawa, who is producing the title, while Resident Evil developer Hiroyuki Kobayashi is working on the game as its executive producer.
