Capcom has given players some new screenshots to ponder over regarding their attempt at a western styled action RPG, Dragon’s Dogma. This batch shows off one of the many large monsters you’ll be encountering in the game world, the massive golem.

Along with the golem’s large size and (literally) rock hard body, the creature also looks to be able to shoot energy beams at would be attackers, making ranged attacks just as risky as getting in close. So how do you tackle a beast that has a hard exterior, can crush your head with its finger, as well as the ability to blast you to bits? My guess would be to hit those glowing, purple marks on various parts of his body. Good luck on that part.

Dragon’s Dogma is currently scheduled for a 2012 release. You can check out the screenshots below.

Assumptions that I am making based on these photos:

  • Mage and Rogue classes in the game, as most photos Ive seen up to known have focused on a plate wearing warrior
  • Dual weilding!
  • We will be encountering golems in several different areas, perhaps even hunting them for a specific reason ala Shadow of the Colossus
  • Encounters are going to be a little more drawn out/detailed than in a typical "smash the A button" Action RPG

I can't wait until 2012 to find out if Im right about these.
