Dragon's Dogma for the PS3 takes place in a vast open world and is crammed with action combat. Accompanied by your three "pawns" you set off on a quest to find and destroy a mysterious fire breathing dragon who lays waste to the land.
The "pawn" system is a new concept. The pawns can move independently of the player, or can be commanded by the player, and have the ability to learn from their experiences and bring these learned experiences to the aid of the player. They can even be hired out or swapped with other players by whom their experience can be used to advantage.
