GSY Video PC

Dragon’s Dogma 2 still needs to be optimized to be perfectly enjoyable on PC and consoles but we keep playing on PC and our archer is now Level 55. In the following HDR videos recorded thanks to GeForce NOW Ultimate a few days ago, we're showing the volcanic island situated in the southern part of the map and the region of Battahl.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 probably shipped a bit too early for its own good, which is why it has so many performance issues on PC and consoles. The first update merely added a few options, like the possibility to start a new game (beware though, as they haven't included several save slots yet). Console players can also deactivate ray tracing (we don't recommend it though as the visual loss is high) or motion blur. The best new feature is that the framerate can now be locked at 30 fps, which is what we took to the test in our new FPS analysis video of the Xbox Series X version.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 doesn't run perfectly on all platforms as even PC players seem to be struggling with the game, especially in cities where cpu load is way too heavy. We thought NVIDIA's streaming service could be the way to go for those who can't afford a recent machine, but in our experience it hasn't really been satisfactory. Of course, it might be due to our Internet connection, which is maybe not stable enough to provide a smooth experience, but it's hard to be sure NVIDIA or Capcom are not too blamed. Since Enshrouded runs like a charm with GeForce NOW, we think our connection is fine, but well... What is odd is that, with an RTX 4080, gameplay should be perfectly smooth in the countryside according to what many people say, but it hasn't been for us for some reason. Moreover, DLSS does not seem to work well with grass and small vegetation in general, giving the game a softer look than it should. Now again, when streaming a game, image quality can also be affected by the connection speed, so it should also be taken into account, but our previous testing of the service was really good in that regard so we're a bit surprised. Anyway, we wanted to share a couple of gameplay videos with you so here they are. Don't worry if you want to see the game run natively on a high-end PC, davton will soon put up his own footage, just be a bit patient.

Now that the embargo on video content has been lifted, we can finally share some raw gameplay footage of Dragon’s Dogma 2. The reviews seem to have been pretty positive from what we've seen, but quite honestly we're not quite sure we should be happy about. Indeed, in our humble opinion, this reboot of the twelve-year-old original game doesn't really improve what needed to be apart from the visuals and some design choices don't really appeal to us. It's obviously rather subjective of course, but we wish enemies wouldn't pop up every two seconds to give us a chance to enjoy exploration. Technically, the decision not at least propose an option to lock the framerate at 30 fps is something we don't understand and we really hope a patch will allow it in the future. Resolution wise, we'd be surprised if the console versions run much higher than 1080p, which would explain the soft look. Anyway, there's still fun to be had obviously, but the game doesn't always make it very easy and it's a bit of a shame.

GSY Preview PS5 Xbox Series X PC

With all this week's releases, we haven't had time to play Dragon’s Dogma 2 much since we received our Xbox Series X code last Friday. It's also because of a lack of time that we could only record an impression video in French. Still, we wanted to share it with you in case you wanted to see the game in action today. Videos without commentary will be available tomorrow on Xbox Series X and PC if you prefer to be a bit more patient. Thanks for your understanding.
