What would you do if a griffon swooped down while you were in the middle of a goblin fight? Is pelting the mythological creature with arrows your plan?
The strider tried that in this trailer and it wasn’t all that effective. His most powerful ability is… grabbing.
Dragon’s Dogma has a grab command, which you can use to climb up a giant enemy a la Shadow of the Colossus. Grabbing an enemy can also hold it in place so a mage engulf the it with a fire spell. Looks like Capcom wants the grab move to be a core part of Dragon’s Dogma.
The open world action RPG led by Devil May Cry 4 director Hideaki Itsuno is slated for release early next year on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
