Quote: "Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen is not a full game. Let’s get that clean out of the way. It will be releasing in a retail form, sure enough, along with a downloadable version, but it is not a full game in its own right. Rather, it is a standalone expansion the likes of Diablo II’s Lord of Destruction, Warcraft III’s The Frozen Throne or Dungeon Siege II’s Broken World. If you’ve ever played any of those, or you have an idea of what I’m talking about here, much in the guise of those strategy and RPG games of old, Dark Arisen is an expansion pack which converts the original (vanilla) experience and brings a whole host of changes with it, while also adding new content of its own.
