SIgn-ups begin this week for PlayStation 4 players.

Dragon's Dogma Online

Dragon’s Dogma Online will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC in Japan on August 31, Capcom announced.

A limited edition retail version will be released on August 27. It will include an array of “Nemesis Series” equipment, including the “Sword of Nemesis” and “Shield of Nemesis”(for the Fighter class), “Wall of Nemesis” and “Rod of Nemesis” (Shield Sage), and “Staff of Nemesis” (Priest) and “Bow of Nemesis” (Hunter).

A closed beta test for the game will run from July 7 to 15. Whereas the alpha was PlayStation 3-only, the beta is targeting all three platforms.

PlayStation 4 users can sign up early between June 8 and 14 via a PlayStation Store download ticket. Then, between June 15 and 30, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC users can all sign up, with PC sign-ups to be available on the game’s official website.

Those who participate in the closed beta will receive the “Offering Cain” weapon, which can be used by the Priest class.
