Capcom released a new trailer for Dragon’s Dogma 2 this week, giving players a closer look at one of the series staple vocations: the Fighter.
The Fighter doesn’t look to be a significant departure from the original Dragon’s Dogma. Players will still be parrying, taunting, and stabbing enemies. One new wrinkle looks to be the ability to counter-attack enemies with a shield bash, which can then connect into a combo.
We haven’t seen everything the Fighter has to offer just yet, either. One major difference between the two games is that players can locate various Maisters and learn new skills. Lennart, the Fighter Maister, should offer Fighters some additional capabilities, but Capcom has yet to show them off.
Last week, Capcom showed off the Warfarer Vocation, an interesting jack-of-all-trades that can use abilities and weapons from other Vocations, with the trade-off being its lower base stats.
The PlayStation blog had the following to say about the Warfarer:
“Some vocations excel at close combat or are skilled at support, and the Warfarer can utilize the strengths of each vocation as the situation demands. The Warfarer has the potential to release powerful combos, such as using Trickster skills to deceive enemies and open opportunities to chant powerful attack magick.”
Dragon’s Dogma 2 arrives March 22 on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
