'Dragon's Dogma' by Capcom.
Capcom has revealed a new event mode for its upcoming RPG Dragon's Dogma.
Legend tells of an immensely powerful dragon that appears in the Everfall beneath Gran Soren. Known as the Ur-Dragon, this is the challenge that awaits Dragon's Dogma owners. Players and their parties of pawns from around the world can compete collectively online in an asynchronous encounter against the Ur-Dragon via Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network.
The effect of each party's attacks will be combined, but the Ur-Dragon's immense strength means it will take multiple encounters before the beast is finally felled. Being the one that deals the fatal blow means that the maximum reward will be received, but regardless all players can still obtain both common and rare items dropped by the Ur-Dragon when they inflict damage.
Players without an online connection can also take on the Ur-Dragon alone, but the rewards will be different to those received online. All Ur-Dragon slayers will have their names and play times recorded on the game's leaderboard for others to view and aim to beat.
The Ur-Dragon challenge is available when Dragon's Dogma releases in North America on May 22 and across Europe on May 25 for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
