Dragon's Dogma free DLC coming Dec. 4 with Hard Mode, Time Attack Mode and rewards

Dragon's Dogma will receive free DLC Dec. 4 on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 that brings previously-announced new modes and rewards to Capcom's action role-playing game, according to a post on the game's Japanese website.

Earlier this year, the game received a patch to make its difficulty more palatable, but the DLC's new Hard Mode, which unlocks after completing the game, increases difficulty. Finishing the challenge will net players "'the king's robe set territory Edman equipment' and 'Abyss hardware equipment,'" according to a translation from Google. Time Attack Mode will unlock "'Serena (set tunic of forest)' and 'equipment Burnaby (set of men's dress Minmin)'."

After Dragon's Dogma shipped 1 million copies to retailers, Capcom announced its intention to convert the game into a franchise. Another DLC offering, Dark Arisen, is scheduled for release early next year. You can check out Polygon's review of the game here.

The game's website confirms the Japanese release date. We've reached out to Capcom to see if and when the DLC is headed to other regions and will update this article as more information becomes available.
