Capcom’s revealed a new “event mode” for this month’s Dragon’s Dogma, allowing players worldwide to combine their efforts to take down a Ur-Dragon.
I’ll let the official words do the explaining for this one: “Players and their parties of Pawns from around the world can compete collectively online in an asynchronous encounter against the Ur-Dragon via Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network. The effect of each party’s attacks will be combined, but be warned its immense strength means it will take multiple encounters before the Ur-Dragon finally falls.”
Rewards will given for all who participate, with the player who gives the final blow promised the greatest of them all. No word on what they may be though.
Those with non-connected consoles can take on the might of the giant beast as well, though for different rewards.
