I come to you bearing unhealthy (however most likely anticipated) information. Spoilers for Capcom’s excessive fantasy RPG Dragon’s Dogma 2 have leaked forward of its March 22 launch, with some gamers streaming four-to-six hours of uncooked, uncut gameplay over the March 15 weekend. As is customary with these kinds of issues, watch out on-line.

In line with Eurogamer and IGN, the leaks appear to have come from gamers having early copies of the sport, although nobody is aware of precisely how this occurred. My guess, nonetheless, is both shops broke its March 22 avenue date (which occurred to The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom two weeks earlier than its Could 12, 2023 launch) or of us modified their console’s time zone to get in early, like folks did with some Mortal Kombat 1 skins again in November 2023. Both manner, the spoilers are on the market now and so they run the gamut of every thing in-game. I’m not going to enter express element—you possibly can simply discover it if you need—however I’ve seen the map measurement, lessons Capcom hasn’t but revealed, bosses, dungeons, end-game content material, and way more. There are lots of leaks floating round. It wouldn’t be a foul thought to mute the phrase Dragon’s Dogma 2” and any related key phrases whereas scrolling on-line.

Capcom seems to be on the case, nuking posts and streams that include Dragon’s Dogma 2 spoilers. That is the web, although, so their efforts would possibly show moot, particularly when, in line with one streamer I watched play the sport early, folks apparently have a number of Twitch accounts devoted to leaking video games. “Video games I’ve leaked to date that I performed early? Like, I can provide y’all a listing,” the streamer stated. “I performed Avatar: Frontiers of Pandora early. I performed fucking Banishers: Ghosts of New Eden early. I performed Last Fantasy VII Rebirth early. And now this. There’s a few issues I’ve streamed early as a result of I really feel like folks ought to see it.”

Kotaku has reached out to Capcom for remark.

Leaks and spoilers apart, Dragon’s Dogma 2 is shaping as much as be 2024’s breakout RPG. Between the hyper-realistic meat, Star Wars-esque Mystic Spearhand class, and bonkers character creator, Capcom is bringing the warmth with this sequel. I’ll have my fingers full with Rise of the Ronin proper now, however as quickly as I end that, I’m transferring on to Dragon’s Dogma 2. I can’t watch for it to dominate my life.
