Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is a "major expansion" due next year

Capcom bringing free Hard and Speedrun modes as DLC.

Capcom has announced Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, a "major expansion" to its mythical beast-slaying role-player.

Dark Arisen will arrive sometime next year for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

No other details were given, except that players will be able to carry save data over to the expansion.

A teaser trailer and screenshots lie below.

In the meantime, Capcom is set to release new Speedrun and Hard mode options to the main Dragon's Dogma quest via free DLC.

Speedrun will challenge players to clear the game as quickly as possible with in-game equipments awarded for those who clock specific times. Hard Mode turns up the difficulty with enemies that are tougher to defeat, but with the reward of further equipment.
