Square Enix announced that the Dragon Quest X Offline expansion, The Sleeping Hero and the Guiding Ally, will release on May 26, 2023. The “extra-large expansion” will send players to the land of Rendashia and add Anlucia as a party member. It will be available at a cost of 4,400 yen (about $33). [Thanks, Famitsu!]
A new trailer was released alongside the announcement, which you can check out below:
According to Square Enix, The Sleeping Hero and the Guiding Ally expansion will be similar in size to the main game. It will also feature an original episode not found in Dragon Quest X Online, as well as introduce exclusive battle content. Players must complete the main story of Dragon Quest X Offline in order to access the contents of the expansion.
The original Dragon Quest X, an MMORPG, was released in early August 2012. Its offline counterpart, which lets those who would prefer not to play an MMO a chance to experience the story of Dragon Quest X, launched on September 15, 2022. It was initially planned for a February 2022 release but was hit with multiple delays.
Dragon Quest X Offline is available now in Japan for the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC via Steam. The Sleeping Hero and the Guiding Ally expansion launches for all four platforms on May 26, 2023.
