The anticipated sequel, Dragon’s Dogma 2, promises to offer an expansive and surprising map, surpassing the expectations set by its predecessor, hailed as one of the best RPGs ever but which failed to achieve massive commercial success. Despite this, Capcom has decided to greenlight this sequel, which is shaping up to be one of the standout releases of the year and a possible contender at The Game Awards 2024.

Recently, the game’s director, Hideki Itsuno, revealed new details about the game’s world in an interview with Automaton-Media. Itsuno notes that, although it has been claimed that Dragon’s Dogma 2’s map is four times larger than that of its predecessor, the development team believes that it is even larger than initially announced. In addition, the number of cities has been significantly increased, with the presence of two large countries and several settlements within them.

Itsuno emphasizes that special attention has been paid to the density of the world, seeking to offer a richer and more varied experience for players.
