In July of this year, we announced that Dragon Quest XI Echoes of the Passing-The definitive edition and hundreds of hours of content will arrive on PS4 on December 4th. A free demo is coming today … now!
Visit the demo page and download it now.
What is included in the demo?
The demo is a generous slice of the game and will take hours to complete. All progress will be carried over to the entire game.
It takes you through the long opening chapter of the game. You begin as a young man trying to participate in ceremonial mountaineering and show his transition to adulthood. But when the event goes in an unexpectedly dangerous direction, he discovers the power and destiny that will change his life forever.
If you’ve played Dragon Quest games, you know that this simple setup will soon turn into a much more spectacular and emotional one. And there is no doubt that you will encounter all sorts of unexpected twists and turns in the demo. I won’t ruin anything here, but let’s say you’ll soon meet an unforgettable character …
After the introduction, you will be unleashed in the lush and vibrant world of Eldrea. The areas you can explore are detailed, with lots of tips to discover and monsters to defeat in exciting, fast-paced turn-based battles.
You can also experience some new extensions added to this version of the game.
Dragon Quest XI Echoes on the Pass-What’s New in the Definitive Edition
This version of Dragon Quest XI has more new features than swinging slime. For example, orchestral in-game music is included as standard. These beautiful Dragon Quest tracks have never been so rich and fulfilling.
Other new enhancements you can experience in the demo include the ability to speed up combat, allowing you to perform these basic combats quickly. Slicing hordes of Cruelcumbers and Needlers at record speeds is strangely satisfying and addictive.
You can also experiment with new photo modes to capture beautiful landscapes and meadows with artistic shots, and pose your character in interesting ways.
There are many loads besides the demo. The entire game has hours of additional story content, an improved crafting system, and the ability to play the entire game in 2D, much like a classic Dragon Quest game. Learn more about the new features.
How long is the demo?
When we say this is a generous demo, we mean it. With so many stories to watch, lots of characters to meet, and lots of monsters to fight, you can spend up to 10 hours playing this. And don’t worry-all that progress can be carried over to the full game.
Dragon Quest XI Echoes of the Passing-When will the definitive edition be released?
If you want to play more, Dragon Quest XI Echoes of the Passing-The definitive edition will be released on December 4th. You can pre-order now at the PlayStation Store.
We hope you enjoy the first steps of this epic journey. I look forward to playing the full game later this year.
