Dragon’s Dogma Online Season 1.3 Update Trailer Reminds You What You’re Missing

Dragon’s Dogma Online is a Japan-only MMO for the time foreseeable future, but don’t let that stop you from checking out its Season 1.3 update trailer and the new Alchemist character class.

The Alchemist has an interesting set of powers, allowing him to spring upward into the air and perform aerial attacks, either slamming back down to the ground or air-dashing forward. Golden spikes emanate from the Alchemist in a burst as he moves and attack, and it appears that he can use attach those spikes to enemies and have them explode with a flick of his wrist. The character is agile and lightweight, clearly a powerful asset in the right hands.

Though Dragon’s Dogma Online is restricted to players with Japanese IP addresses, it can still be accessed by routing through a VPN, or virtual private network, which will allow you to play the game from anywhere. As well, a fan-translated English patch is still in the works, and guides for playing the game in its current form already exist.

The Dragon’s Dogma Online Season 1.3 update will be out in Spring 2016.
