Are you wondering if you can play Dragon's Dogma 2 offline? Here's a guide to help you!

Undoubtedly, Dragon’s Dogma 2 is regarded as one of the most promising releases of 2024, and RPG fans are desperately waiting for its release. Capcom’s fantasy RPG allows players to explore its landscape and build their specialization with vocations. Players will have a collection of party members and followers who can help them with their journey. While players are excited, many wonder if you can play Dragon’s Dogma 2 offline. If you’ve been questioning the same, we’ve got you covered! Here’s everything you need to know about Dragon’s Dogma 2 offline mode.

Can You Play Dragon’s Dogma 2 Offline?

Short Answer: Yes! You’ll be able to enjoy Dragon’s Dogma 2 offline. However, when launching the game for the first time, players will need an internet connection for Denuvo to validate. This only applies to the PC version of the game, not the PlayStation or Xbox versions.

Many players are frustrated as they believe that a single-player game doesn’t need an internet connection to launch. However, it’s worth remembering that once you’ve launched the game for the first time, you won’t need any internet connection to play it again, at least for a while. Denuvo only requires it to be validated the first time you open the game. After that, it will need to be periodically checked in.

If you want to enjoy the game online, you can browse and recruit your friends’ pawns. These pawns will join your party and return riftstones and experience to the player who sent them.

What is Denuvo in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

Denuvo is anti-cheating software that prevents players from cheating by installing hacks in online multiplayer games. However, as Dragon's Dogma 2 is a single-player title with few minor but not required online features, it doesn't gain from Denuvo. Capcom, the developer of the Dragon's Dogma series, has been implementing the software across its games, and that's why the sequel has it.

Denuvo has been heavily criticized for affecting game performance and sacrificing FPS. However, we've seen Capcom remove the software after a while. This happened with Resident Evil Village and other titles such as Resident Evil 2 Remake and Monster Hunter World. So, while Dragon's Dogma 2 will come with Denuvo at launch, it will likely be removed a year later.
