Dragon’s Dogma 2 reveals streamers and vtubers as “Official Pawns”

Dragon’s Dogma 2 has announced a list of popular streamers and vtubers as “official pawns” in-game.

Dragon's Dogma 2 has revealed that players can explore its world with some popular streamers and vtubers as their pawns.

After making the game's character creator free to download for the public before its release, Capcom has revealed a list of popular streamers, vtubers and content creators that will be recruitable in-game as pawns. Pawns in Dragon's Dogma 2 are followers that players can have alongside them as they explore the game's open world. Think of them as followers in The Elder Scrolls or Fallout games.

A controversial inclusion among these influencers is Asmongold, who is frequently called out on Social media. The other popular influencers include Suzi "TheSphereHunter" Hunter, French streamer Joueur du Grenier, and Kit "Kitosan" Ellis.

What are pawns in Dragon's Dogma 2?

In Dragon's Dogma 2, players can lead a group of up to three pawns as they explore the world. These pawns will help them survive and fight through the game world. The character creator also allows players to create a character for their main pawn. These pawns aren't unlike followers in other popular open-world RPGs such as The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim and the Fallout Series. They're essentially sidekicks for the main character.
