Here’s When Dragon’s Dogma 2 Launches For Aussies

Ready for an adventure?

Dragon’s Dogma 2 is nearly upon us, and Capcom has revealed the exact times that players around the globe will be able to step out into its wild, open world for the first time.

As a sequel to the ambitious 2012 action RPG, Dragon’s Dogma 2 promises to deliver on that early ambition with a bigger and better world, updated systems, gorgeous visuals and plenty of exciting secrets to discover. Players can go on a journey as their customised Arisen protagonist, accompanied by their own Pawn and an endless supply of Pawns made by other players, slaying mythical beasts and mastering new and exciting Vocations.

While the game technically launches on March 22nd, the nature of global timezones means that’s not the full story everywhere. PS5 and Xbox Series X|S players pretty much across the planet can expect to get access at midnight local time, but Steam’s more rigid scheduling means that those on PC have slightly shorter or longer to wait depending on their geography.

Here’s what each version’s unlock rollout looks like for those of us across Australia and New Zealand:
