Dragon’s Dogma 2 is the latest fantasy RPG to hit the market, and many players are wondering whether the single-player title can be played offline. Here’s the answer to whether you’ll need an internet connection to play Dragon’s Dogma 2.

After 12 years of remaining dormant, Capcom’s beloved RPG series is back with Dragon’s Dogma 2. The sequel to 2012’s cult-classic Dragon’s Dogma expands on the original in almost every area, bringing with it a bigger open world and more enemy variety, alongside many returning features.

The RPG is primarily a single-player experience that can be enjoyed with AI companions known as Pawns for company. However, some of the game’s contemporaries have integrated online features into their games, leading players to wonder whether Dragon’s Dogma 2 will do the same and require an active connection to be played.

So, if you’re looking forward to playing Dragon’s Dogma 2, here’s whether you can play the game offline.

Does Dragon’s Dogma 2 require an internet connection?

No, Dragon’s Dogma 2 does not require an active internet connection. It will only demand a connection the first time you boot up the game. Any subsequent playthroughs can be enjoyed without being online.
