Dragon’s Dogma 2 will feature time-limited quests

Dragon's Dogma 2 has various quests that require players to deviate from their original path in order to complete them in time.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 will take up the mantle from the first game, setting time constraints on some side quests. This is a feature that isn’t commonly seen in games today but was very prevalent in the past, and it may force some individuals to replay Dragon’s Dogma 2 in order to complete the majority, if not all, of the quests.

The long-awaited sequel to 2012’s Dragon’s Dogma, the next RPG is planned to arrive on March 22 and has already established itself as a more serious and possibly more immersive experience than many other games in the genre. There are over a thousand characters in the fictional world, and, like Skyrim and other “realistic” roleplaying games, NPCs in Dragon’s Dogma 2 will die if something bad occurs to them. Making death permanent, paradoxically, is intended to make the world feel more alive, and some players may find themselves struggling to keep beloved NPCs alive.

Another Reddit member, Direct_Hurry7264, stated that these special tasks are delivered by certain Dragon’s Dogma 2 NPCs. They will approach unexpectedly, forcing the player to drop whatever they are doing to accomplish the mission on time. Failure to do so may result in a character’s untimely death, which will be permanent, as previously stated, or another potentially unpleasant outcome.

It’s unclear whether these time-dependent tasks must be completed or if they would display the hourglass signal before being accepted, allowing players to make an informed decision. However, the in-game warning states that “taking on multiple quests at once comes with a risk,” implying that there will be an option. It’s also possible that the phrasing of those tasks will indicate that they must be completed on time. Nonetheless, while Dragon’s Dogma 2 will take approximately 40 hours to complete the main story, the majority of that time will not be spent free roaming with a notebook filled with unfulfilled objectives. For players who enjoy grabbing every sidequest they come across to complete at their leisure, these timed tasks will put an end to that habit.
