Dragon's Dogma II Review-Bombed on Steam Over Micro-Transactions Issues

Over a decade after first game, 2024 action role-playing game Dragon's Dogma II from Japanese developer/publisher Capcom has just launched earlier across PC via Steam, PlayStation 5 as well as Xbox Series X/S console to critical acclaim.

Even though critics are praising its overall experience, reactions of many PC players are not that favorable as they are not having a great time with Dragon's Dogma sequel due to a list of micro- transactions and various performance issues.

Players have discovered that Dragon's Dogma 2 has a wealth of micro-transactions that Capcom didn't reveal until release-day. It has a number of DLC items and many of them are features that should be easily unlockable in-game for free.

One of the notable DLC purchases is Art of Metamorphosis, which allows you to customize your character's appearance and hairstyle. Above-mentioned awfully rare item can be found in-game or players can just but one for $1.99 instead.

Other purchasable items are Wakestones, which can resurrect players during mid-battle instead of returning to checkpoint. These arcane magick rocks can also revive dead NPCs and are scarce to find but you can buy these for $0.99 each.

Players are also quite mad at Capcom for using controversial Denuvo anti-tamper technology as it can affect game's performance on PC. All these issues together have lead to reviews on Steam dropping down to "mostly negative" already.

Players who purchased DD2: Deluxe Edition has access to A Boon for Adventurers: New Journey Pack DLC, which is also sold for $14.99. It includes nine of the 21 DLC and buying all of them will cost you $38.87 aside from main game price.

Dragon's Dogma II is first Capcom game to be priced at $69.99 for its standard edition due to an increased cost of development. These are all signs of major studios trying to normalize including paid DLCs in fully priced AAA-game in future.
