Capcom has recently faced backlash from players of Dragon's Dogma 2 concerning the game's use of microtransactions and performance issues on PC. Despite receiving positive pre-release reviews, the game has encountered mixed reception on platforms like Steam after its launch.

One of the main sources of discontent among players is the presence of 21 separate DLC purchases available on the first day of the game's release. Many players feel that features included in these DLC should have been easily attainable for free within the game.

In response to the outcry, Capcom issued a statement acknowledging the feedback from the community. The company expressed regret for any inconvenience caused to eager players and assured them that they are investigating the issues raised.

Regarding microtransactions, Capcom clarified that all items available for purchase can also be obtained through in-game progression. This includes items like:

  • Art of Metamorphosis – Character Editor
  • Ambivalent Rift Incense – Change Pawn Inclinations
  • Portcrystal – Warp Location Marker
  • Wakestone – Restore the dead to life!
  • 500 Rift Crystals / 1500 Rift Crystals / 2500 Rift Crystals – Points to Spend Beyond the Rift
  • Makeshift Gaol Key – Escape from gaol!
  • Harpysnare Smoke Beacons – Harpy Lure Item

Furthermore, Capcom is actively looking into critical problems such as crashes and freezing, with plans to address these issues in the near future. The company is also exploring ways to optimize performance, particularly in scenarios with high CPU usage affecting frame rates.

Additionally, Capcom is considering implementing a feature that allows players to restart the game on Steam, providing more flexibility and control over the gaming experience.

Dragon's Dogma 2 marks Capcom's debut in pricing a standard edition game at $70, with the company considering similar pricing strategies for future releases to offset rising development costs in the industry. This move comes on the heels of Capcom being recognized as Metacritic's highest-rated publisher in 2023.

As Capcom continues to engage with the feedback provided by players, fans can expect improvements and updates to enhance their gameplay experience in Dragon's Dogma 2.
