Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen HD Texture Pack Comparison

Dragon's Dogma Dark Arisen comes with a second disc, and on that disc is not only a complete Japanese voice-over track, but there is also an HD Texture pack. The HD Texture pack does a good job in improving a lot of the bland, blurry and quite washed out textures from the original game, and helps breathe life back into this new expansions.

For a side-by-side comparison of the game with, and without the texture pack, check out the video below: (Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen, PS3, Xbox 360)

Oh wow, I hadn't heard about this. Is the Texture Pack only for the 360 version? Are the textures pre loaded on the PS3 disc (as opposed to needing a second disc for them)? Either way, I cannot wait for this game!

Me either. And it looks great. I have wondered why more games havnt done this since rage did. Yeah, rage had some pop ins but I prefer the gloriois textured with a 1 sec pop in over washed out.

What are you talking about? RAGE had awful textures close-up, certainly not the "gloriois textured" you talk about.

Have you never owned a PS3 until now? Surely you know that a Blu-Ray holds 50GB of data, meaning that NO game requires a second disk. Sorry, but the comments on this site are incredibly stupid.

Yeah, I've owned one for about 5 or so years and you know what?... The Blu-Ray disc, as a storage medium, has rarely been utilized by third-party developers. There are a lot of great looking first-party titles out there (I remember being particularly impressed with the texture quality in Killzone 2 and Uncharted 2 when they launched) but aside from Tomb Raider and maybe Battlefield 3's single-player campaign (yes there are others smattered here and there also), most developers don't seem to be taking the time to utilize the disc space, due to development constraints.

The question in my mind was more-so whether or not PS3 owners will have to install the textures (like we install everything else) by choice, if it's mandatory, or if they're coming pre loaded with no "installation" necessary.

Anyway, it comes out today and I'll be enjoying it in a matter of hours and all will be answered. =)

You have yourself a good day and stop by more often.

Some things show the new texture pack better than others. That said, I had no problem with the game in its original form, it's brilliant. This HD Texture Pack? Icing on the cake I suppose.

The title is all wrong; the content hd textures are the same has in the original release but now to have the game looking like the original version people need to install the textures that come all on this HD pack on the second disc!!What this means is that if you pop just the first disc withouth installing the hd textures the game will look worst than the first version already released of the game!The content HD texture that come on the second disc of DD Arisen will make the game look like the the original release,this also means that people that dont have an HDD will play this version of the game looking worst than the original release since they cant install the complete hd textures.I have the two versions and playing DD Arisen without the hd content install looks worst than the original Dragon dogma..looks crap.

This is just like Rage on xbox then...and battlefield 3 if I remember right. I don't care though. It was one of my fav games of 2012 so I can't wait. Ijust started dark souls though so it may be a bit...lol.

I was gonna say, that looked MUCH worse than I remember. It's like PSone era textures if you don't install, apparently. Looks real nice installed though.

The one on the right really just looks like standard Dragon's Dogma(original)

Just hearing that wonderful music again brings back wonderful memories of this criminally under rated game.
