The best way to experience an extension of a game’s story, I think, is through either a novel or comic book. This gives creators another media to extend the story, and to go into more detail once the game has gone gold. Several developers have taken this route and it looks like Capcom is once again going to comics to give some back story on the upcoming Dragon’s Dogma. Capcom released a digital comic/trailer that explains a bit about Dragon’s Dogma and explains how and why your character is the “chosen one”:
The digital comic is set to be released in multiple chapters, right up until the release of the game on May 22. I wouldn’t mind buying a paperback form of the comic if Capcom decides print them. If they did I’m sure they’ll create more fans who are more into comics than into games and vice versa.
