I honestly never found Dragon's Dogma to be a particularly hard game, but there seem to be enough players that do so, given that Capcom is going to add an easy mode through a patch, at least according to Andriasang.
In addition to that, it looks like PlayStation 3 users will also get the chance to try a new demo with the beginning phases of the title:
Capcom will be making Drgaon's Dogma more accessible to beginner players with an upcoming patch that adds an "easy mode" to the game. An update due on August 6 will add easy mode to the options menu, allowing you to switch to easy whenever you like.
PlayStation 3 owners can exclusively look forward to a new demo. This demo, titled "Adventure Demo" will let you play the game's opening, through the hydra battle. You'll be able to edit your pawn character and carry your save data over to the game's final build. Look for the demo on August 9.
