Dragon’s Dogma 2 will not have a coop mode, as confirmed by the developers.

Capcom's Dragon's Dogma 2 is one of the most highly anticipated RPGs in a post-Baldur's Gate 3 world. The original Dragon's Dogma was very well-received and has a loyal player base. This bigger and more ambitious sequel promises to deliver a much more immersive gameplay experience.

However, it has big shoes to fill as RPGs are the rage right now. In an interview with Automaton, the developers described the features and went over why Dragon's Dogma 2 won't get multiplayer game modes like co-op.

Why doesn't Dragon's Dogma 2 have a coop mode?

During their interview with Automaton, Game Director Hideaki Itsuno described the idea behind the game's single-player-only philosophy. According to him, while online games have their strengths just as offline ones, Capcom wanted to incorporate fun elements that aren't typically found in offline games while removing the "hassle" from online games.

Therefore, while Dragon's Dogma 2 features some character classes or "vocations" that fit well in online co-op games, the core gameplay remains a single-player experience.

There will be other ways to interact with the game's community

While Dragon's Dogma won't feature any multiplayer or co-op modes, there will be other ways players can interact with the community.

These include recruiting pawns made by other players. The developers are relying on pawns to provide an experience akin to that of the typical co-op mode. They're confident that the game's advanced AI. Additionally, players will have the ability to shape a pawn's personality and have them react to in-game events.

Any players looking for the opportunity to explore the world of Dragon's Dogma 2 in coop mode with their friends might be disappointed with this news. However, there are still plenty of features to look forward to. Dragon's Dogma 2 is an ambitious project that aims to be bigger and better than the original.
