Dragon's Dogma Presents: The 'Ur-Dragon' Event Mode Challenge
Written Wednesday, May 09, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Some dragons in Dragon's Dogma can be slain by you and your Pawns, but Capcom has today announced a dragon that can only be brought down by the might of the Dragon's Dogma community combined. A legendary and immensely powerful dragon, the Ur-Dragon (stupid name) appears in the Everfall beneath Gran Soren, awaiting adventurers and their Pawns.
Playing as your own bespoke version of the game's hero 'The Arisen', you and your Pawns can compete collectively online with other players and their parties around the globe in "an asynchronous encounter" to fight the Ur-Dragon via Xbox Live. The combined effects of yours and the rest of the online players' attacks will accumulate as you attack the Ur-Dragon, but the scaly beast is so damn powerful, that it'll take several encounter to bring it down.
Should you be the one to deliver the final, fatal blow, you'll receive a massive reward, while all players can collect a host of common and rare items dropped by the Ur-Dragon when they deal out damage against it. If you're playing Dragon's Dogma online, you can still tackle the Ur-Dragon solo, but you'll get different rewards.
Anyone who participates in taking on the Ur-Dragon will have their names and play times recorded in the Dragon's Dogma hall of fame, for other players to try and beat. Dragon's Dogma is out on May 22nd in North America and May 25th in Europe.
