Available for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, Dark Arisen can be purchased as a physical disc and or a full-game download and includes an expansive new area complete with new missions and enemies, as well as all previous content from the original Dragons' Dogma.

Current Dragon's Dogma owners will be able to export their characters and all saved data into Dark Arisen to continue their journey and acquire new higher-level skills, over 100 new pieces of weaponry and armor, 14 new character and Pawn augments and new tiers for skills and equipment enhancements.

In addition to the original storyline of Dragon's Dogma, Dark Arisen will take players to Bitterblack Isle to explore an underground world packed with 25 new types of enemy encounters and new treasures. The travel and menu systems have also been tweaked based on player feedback from the original game. Players will also have more character customization options and can choose to switch the voice over to Japanese.
