Capcom Unveils Planned Updates For Dragon’s Dogma 2 Across Consoles And Steam

Dragon’s Dogma 2 had a rocky start, especially on Steam. However, Capcom wants to improve that and has unveiled a handful of features and fixes for the game. A Monday, March 25, tweet from the game’s official handle said each platform will receive its update as soon as they are ready.

The accompanying image detailed the most urgent changes that Capcom is planning for the game including “changing the number of Art of Metamorphosis available for purchase at Pawn Guilds to 99. Some players harshly criticized Capcom after the launch of Dragon’s Dogma 2 last Friday because of Art of Metamorphosis.

Some players claimed that Art of Metamorphosis was not available for free in-game and could only be purchased as a DLC. Many found it absurd because Art of Metamorphosis is an ability that allows players to customize their character including changing their hair color. This is a feature that many players get for free in many other games. Players uncovered 21 separate DLC purchases available on day one in Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Capcom later issued a statement on Steam clarifying that Art of Metamorphosis, Ambivalent Rift Incense, Portcrystal, Wakestone, Rift Crystals, Makeshift Gaol Key, and Harpysnare Smoke Beacons were all available in-game for free. However, it is safe to add that they are rare to find.

Increasing the number of Art of Metamorphosis players can purchase in-game is surely a way of dousing tension. Art of Metamorphosis is currently hard to come by in Dragon’s Dogma 2 which means players who want the easy route must turn to microtransactions to get it.

Below are all the planned updates for Dragon’s Dogma 2.

Capcom mentioned that turning on or off the motion blur or ray tracing options will not significantly affect the frame rates. However, the developer/publisher is working on improving Dragon’s Dogma 2’s frame rates in the future.

On paper, an uncapped frame rate can sound interesting. However, it can lead to a jarring gaming experience where the frame rates bounce around from extremely great pictures to poor pictures. However, when the frame rate is capped, players can have a more consistent gaming experience.
