Arisen in Dragon's Dogma 2 is a title given to the player character. The title is conferred upon as chosen by the Dragon, for one's notable courage and strength of will, usually through seeing if they are able to stand up against one during an outright attack. The Dragon takes and devours the chosen's heart, causing them to live once more with renewed vitality and unimaginable power. With these gifts, the Arisen seeks to unravel the mysteries surrounding their title, the politics of the world around him, the Dragon, and their own fate.

What is the Arisen in Dragon's Dogma 2?

Much like the previous game, the Arisen begins their journey as beckoned by a Dragon to find it and challenge it, as fate dictates. Not much is currently known about the context of the overarching world, but it's been revealed that players will begin the game in an underground prison. The outside world above seems to have numerous conflicts that the Arisen will have to resolve, such as the need for protection of Empress Nadinia, and the presence of someone masquerading as you, the Arisen. It is unclear if the Dragon is still Grigori from the first game, which would imply that the previous main character did not ascend to be the new Seneschal, leaving Grigori no choice but to assume his role of recruiting the next candidates as Arisen. Similarly, it is unclear how the sequel chronologically connects to the second game.

Nevertheless, the Arisen will have to rise to the Dragon's challenge and journey through the vibrant new world, filled with new and old enemies alike, to face their fate. To do so, we expect players to again be able to learn and improve upon their Vocations and Skills and make use of powerful Equipment. In this regard, there was one new wieldable weapon revealed in the trailer - a censer, as well as possible new Vocations or Skills that have power over the wind and gravity.

This page will be updated as more information about the Arisen is revealed. In the meantime, view our reveal impressions on the trailer for a sneak peek at the Arisen in Dragon's Dogma 2.
