Dragon’s Dogma Trailer Showcases The Strategy Behind The Pawns

Have you ever dreamt of a game in which your AI-controlled companions performed advanced actions like holding your enemies in place while you kill them? The upcoming Dragon’s Dogma¬†might just be that game, as shown by the new trailer released today by Capcom.

The video focuses on what the Pawns can do to make our adventures easier, and on hiring more powerful Pawns in order to get through encounters above our level, that normally we wouldn’t be able to handle.

As someone that always pays special attention to companion NPCs (enough to mod quite a few into Oblivion myself), I can definitely say that my curiosity is now piqued. Watch the trailer for yourself after the cut.
