Here’s A Fantastic Dragon’s Dogma 2 Primer Narrated By The Award-Winning Ian McShane

Count me well and truly Ian.

I’ve got to hand it to whoever at Capcom nabbed the incredible Ian McShane (American Gods, John Wick) to narrate a near-eight-minute long trailer for Dragon’s Dogma 2, because even if you somehow weren’t incredibly excited for the game’s upcoming release there’s no way you can listen to the man’s golden pipes and not be immediately invested in everything he’s saying. I could listen to Ian McShane read my Uber Eats history and not even feel the crippling shame that it should rightfully bring me.

Anyway, point is, there’s now a near-eight-minute long primer video on everything Dragon’s Dogma 2, designed to get keen players good and hyped for launch next week on March 22nd as well as hopefully pull in those last remaining stragglers to see just what all the fuss is about.

“Welcome to Dragon’s Dogma 2” has McShane narrate a series of sections, from an introduction to The Arisen – the character you’ll create and control whose place in the world is one of legend and mystery in equal measure – and their otherwordly and loyal companions The Pawns, to the world itself and the nations that inhabit it, as well as the many monsters and dangers you’ll face along the way.

“It’s a sequel, but it’s a sequel to a game that’s barely been touched when it comes to the type of open-world experience it offers. And that’s why the prospect of Dragon’s Dogma II is so exciting – because the original game was so underrated and so special, and now, we’re about to live through all of that again,” James said in his preview of the game.

A free character creator is already available for the game, so you can get crafting your mighty Arisen and their main Pawn right away (with some incredible results).

Dragon’s Dogma II launches for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S and PC on March 22nd. You can pre-order it now on Amazon for $99 with free shipping and pre-order price guarantee.
