Dark Arisen is now out on the PC platform. Originally an enhanced and expanded version of Dragon’s Dogma for the PS3 and Xbox 360 platforms in 2013, the title has made its way to Windows systems nearly 3 years later. So how does this port from Capcom hold up? Check out OnlySP’s full Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen review for the final verdict. In the mean time, if you’re new to the game or simply curious as to how it might look. Check out the first 15 minutes of the game, which covers the prologue, prior to actual character creation.
As you may be able to see, the visuals have been bumped up, but the graphics and engine still show a bit of age. It was never a showstopper to begin with so this is somewhat forgivable. The Japanese developers porting to PC have begun to learn their lesson and offer us some graphical settings to play with here. This video was taken from the game played on mostly High settings, apart from Medium shadows and runs well at 1080p and an uncapped framerate allows for 60fps (seen in the video) or higher.
Here are some additional stills captured from the video and further gameplay. In-game graphics are a bit sharper than cut-scenes which have a blurry/foggy feel to them.
