Does Dragon’s Dogma 2 Have Multiplayer Co-Op or Not?

In Short
  • Unfortunately, Dragon's Dogma 2 will not have a multiplayer co-op mode.
  • According to Dragon’s Dogma 2 director Hideaki Itsuno, the game will be a complete single-player experience in an open-world setting.
  • However, the director says you can gather three other Pawns and create a party of four to make it feel like a multiplayer experience.

RPG is a genre full of mythical creatures, hard bosses, and plenty to do alone. While a wide range of RPGs allows you to share your daily shenanigans with friends, Dragon’s Dogma was always focused on being a single-player narrative. It is obvious, given it is 2024 that anyone would ask if Dragon’s Dogma 2 will have a multiplayer co-op in the game. So, read more to find out if there is something for the multiplayer lovers in DD2.

Will Dragon’s Dogma 2 Come with Multiplayer?

As we mentioned when we spoke about whether Dragon’s Dogma 2 will come with crossplay or not, the game is a complete single-player narrative. As such, Dragon’s Dogma 2 will not have multiplayer. According to a game showcase in 2023, Dragon’s Dogma 2 director Hideaki Itsuno revealed that similar to the original, Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be a single-player-only experience. He further mentioned:

Dragon’s Dogma 2 will be a single-player game but with Pawns at your side, it will feel like a co-op… You embark on your adventures with Pawns, other worldly being controlled by AI.

So, you might miss being with your friends in Dragon’s Dogma 2. However, Pawns will be there to take your loneliness away in the huge open world. The Pawns will be highly customizable. There will be a main Pawn and two additional support Pawns that will constantly assist you.

You can borrow support Pawns from other players and form up to a four-player party in the game. This adds a layer to Dragon’s Dogma and removes the typical single-player feeling. However, not having friends by your side can make this game a strong contender for the hardest game of all time.

Despite not having a proper multiplayer co-op, Capcom seems to have done its best to keep the feeling of being in a party intact. What do you think about Dragon’s Dogma 2’s lack of a multiplayer co-op mode? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
