Dragon's Dogma 2 Confirms Good News for PS5 Gamers

Capcom's upcoming Dragon's Dogma 2 has recently confirmed that it won't require a PS Plus subscription in order to use its online features. Dragon's Dogma 2 is one of Capcom's most anticipated releases of 2024. One of the biggest features in the RPG is the Pawn system, which is enhanced through online play.

In the original Dragon's Dogma, players can create their own NPC assistants known as Pawns that assist them on their adventures. If played online, players can hire their friends' pawns for their own party, with the hired pawns bringing back experience points and riftstones for the player who originally had them. Players who are considering Dragon's Dogma 2 on PS5 won't need to worry about subscribing to PS Plus to use its online Pawn system.

This detail was confirmed through the official PlayStation Store page for Dragon's Dogma 2, which contains details on its online functionality. Dragon's Dogma 2's store page mentions how online play is optional, and doesn't say players will require a PS Plus subscription in order to use its online functions. For reference, games that do require a subscription, like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, state it outright on the store page.

In the original Dragon's Dogma, players could also use its online features without needing a subscription to PS Plus. The reason why players won't need to pay a subscription is likely due to how the online mode is structured, as the game doesn't feature full multiplayer co-op functionality or matchmaking, unlike the aforementioned Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, for example.

This likely won't apply to Xbox gamers who are considering getting Dragon's Dogma 2. For reference, Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen's Xbox One version requires an Xbox Live subscription in order to connect online, though the tier of the subscription doesn't affect what features are accessible. Dragon's Dogma 2's official Xbox version page states it has Xbox Live capabilities, which means it will most likely be required in order to use its online functions. PlayStation players without PS Plus are likely relieved they don't need to worry about needing to pay an additional cost in order to use Dragon's Dogma 2's online features.
