It seems as though Capcom’s fantasy RPG Dragon’s Dogma will be getting a ‘major expansion’, entitled Dark Arisen, that is set to launch in 2013. Dragon’s Dogma released early this year to generally solid reviews and has built a strong following of fans who appreciated its darker, more mature tone.
Unfortunately, Capcom are keeping their cards very close to their chest regarding the expansion and have announced very little other than the fact it will release sometime in 2013 and will contain many more Dragons and will continue to uphold the dark tone set by the rest of game. They also released a short teaser trailer for Dark Arisen which can be found below.
Although they have released very little information regarding the Dark Arisen pack, Capcom did however announce a free title update, planned in the coming months, which will add two new game modes to the fray.

The other new mode, ‘Speedrun’, challenges players with completing the game as quickly as possible and will offer in game rewards for achieving set times.
Sadly, there are no specific dates for either the title update or the Dark Arisen packs yet, but expect the title update to arrive before the year is out, with Dark Arisen launching in early 2013.
