Today Capcom released a new batch of screenshots of the upcoming PS4 and Xbox One version of Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen.

The screenshots appear to showcase the PS4 version, and we get to see the nine vocations available in the game: Fighter, Warrior, Mystic Knight, Strider, Ranger, Assassin, Mage, Sorcerer and Magic Archer.

We also see the weapons for the basic vocations (which are basically Dragon’s Dogma‘s classes): sword and shield for Fighter, bow and dagger for Strider snd staff for Mage.

Perhaps more interesting is that the PS4 and Xbox One versions are getting the hotkey feature that was added in the PC version of the game.

You can select an item of common use and the button you want to assign it to. Items like potions or lanterns are all available. You can then activate the hotkey in game by pressing L1 or R1 plus the assigned button (or LB or RB on Xbox One).

You can check out all the screenshots below, and if you want to see more about vocations you can check out a trailer about warrior-based vocations, one showing archer-based vocationsone for mage-based vocations, TRuant Pixel’s dynamic PS4 theme for the game, a video comparing PS4 and PS3 graphics, and the character creation.

Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen will release on current generation consoles (PS4 and Xbox One) in North America and Europe Tomorrow (October 3rd), priced at $29.99. The western release actually comes a few days in before the Japanese launch, which will happen on October 5th.
