New Dragon’s Dogma 2 update takes the weight off your shoulders

If your items were weighing you down across the lands, then this new Dragon's Dogma 2 update is ideal for managing your gear on the go.

As you venture across the distant lands of Dragon’s Dogma 2, you’ll acquire a bona fide mountain of gear – and it seriously stacks up. It can be a pain to let go of those precious potions or wicked weapons, but luckily, this new Dragon’s Dogma 2 update is a godsend for your item management and your character’s spine.

In the latest patch notes for Capcom’s sprawling RPG game, the developer includes several tweaks to Dragon’s Dogma 2‘s inventory mechanics, with one of the major improvements “increasing the maximum number of items of one kind that can be put in storage from 99 to 999.” Still carrying round multiple armor sets for your vocation, too? Capcom is making it easier to take up different fighting styles on the fly, too. Here’s a rundown of the changes Capcom is deploying for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S players:

  • Adding function to sell items from the storage menu
  • Adding function to equip armor from the storage menu
  • Adding function to equip armor from the storage when changing vocation in a vocation guild
  • Increasing the maximum number of items of one kind that can be put in storage from 99 to 999
  • Adjusting so that when an item is put in the storage beyond the maximum limit, the maximum number of items are automatically put in storage

Like you, I’ve put in tons of hours into Capcom’s epic open world game, and the fact I now do something as simple as equipping armor from the storage menu is a true game-changer. Having to navigate between two separate menus that effectively display the same information always baffled me, so it is encouraging to see Capcom become aware of this odd design decision. Selling items directly from storage is a win toward a more player friendly experience too, as it removes, once again, another menu to scroll through.

Additionally, players can expect Dragon’s Dogma 2’s graphical aspects to get some love when they boot up the game again. Previous updates have drastically boosted the game’s otherwise questionable frame rate, and now, Capcom is taking that further with the ability to direct choose how much detail you’d prefer on your adventures:

  • Adding option to change graphics settings to high/low
  • Adding option to turn 120Hz output on/off

Now that we’re a few months removed from the game’s launch, could we see some Dragon’s Dogma 2 DLC on the horizon? A new wave of vocations would be interesting to see implemented, as the game’s approach to combat is easily one of its biggest strengths.

In other gaming news, Ubisoft is gearing up for a new wave of Assassin’s Creed remakes, and we get hands on with The First Descendant ahead of launch.
