Next Dragon’s Dogma 2 Update Reduces Frequency of Dragonsplague

Capcom has outlined the various tweaks and improvements coming in the next major Dragon’s Dogma 2 update. Chief among them is a fix that reduces the frequency of the fatal dragonsplague while also giving Pawns more visible signs of being infected. The behaviour and dialogue of Pawns will also be improved along with some much-needed changes to gameplay and quality of life improvements.

Before the update, Pawns could contract dragonsplague, a viral infection exclusive to Pawns that causes them to experience headaches, disobedience and generally just be unreliable in battle. If you don’t pick up the early warning signs then your infected Pawn eventually transforms into a shadow dragon that mercilessly slaughters everyone in town. You can see why so many players felt strongly about this feature.

Thankfully, the next major update for Dragon’s Dogma 2 reduces the frequency in which Pawns can get dragonsplague while also making the telltale signs of infection more noticeable, such as glowing eyes. Read the full patch notes for the update below:

  • Reducing the infection frequency of dragonsplague and adjusting the signs of Pawns infected with dragonsplague to be more noticeable.
    • For example, when infected, glowing eyes will be more noticeable.
