Dragon's Dogma demo now available

As promised, the demo for Dragon's Dogma has hit both the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live. Capcom's whack at the action-RPG genre lets you sample two missions and the character customization features.

The two missions give you pre-set characters to slay monsters with -- the Fighter in a battle against a Chimera, and the Strider against a Griffin. Your tinkering with the character-maker doesn't impact your demo play, but you will be able to import your character and Main Pawn to the game once it releases.

If the sample convinces you to pick up Dragon's Dogma, you'll get another demo goodie: access to the Resident Evil 6 demo. However, that offer only extends to Xbox 360 players, and the demo won't come out until September.

Dragon's Dogma is coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 22. No PC version has been announced, but the company has hinted that enough demand could bring one to market. To that end, the Capcom forum thread requesting one is up to a whopping 56 pages.
