Gematsu is reporting (based on articles in Famitsu) that Capcom has a free-to-play, online version of Dragon's Dogma in the works. The title is currently slated to be released on the Playstation 3, PS4, and the PC and is due to be released some time this year.

Dragon's Dogma Online seems to operate along the lines of the original Phantasy Star Online where parties form in a lobby and then take to the field together in groups of four. If you want to play solo though you can as Capcom has stated that AI NPCs can be used in lieu of actual party members. Combat will play like Dragon's Dogma fans would expect. Big monsters that become enraged, clinging combat, and dramatic battles are all slated to make their appearances.

On the story front, Dragon's Dogma Online features an entirely new story and is separate from its solo playing siblings. The open world portion of the game will be expanded through seasonal updates, and the team briefly thought about making the game subscription but thought free-to-play with microtransactions would lead to more people trying the game.

It's interesting to watch develop as I loved the single player games, but I'll hold back on judgement until we know more. Would you look forward to a Dragon's Dogma Online game? Let me know below!

If they can retain what was good about the combat in Dragons Dogma, I think this could do well. Heavily instanced would be my first thoughts. Nothing quite as ruining as the lag of the zerg swarm.

Hopefully the NA localization of DD doesn't meet the same fate as PSO.
(I'm tired of playing through proxy)

I really likeed the combat in the Single player games, the storylines were ok, if they can nail the same combat for the MMO then I will be happy lets hope it gets a western release.

I wonder if they are gonna make a good story for this game, since MMOs usually focus more on the gameplay. I really liked the combat on Dragon's Dogma tho, so I'm really looking forward to this game.
