Sony Senior Community Specialist Kristine Steimer announced today that Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is free for members as part of the PlayStation Plus content updates this week.

To quote: We're kicking off this month's PlayStation Plus freebies with Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen. This vast role playing game includes the original title with a few key changes like fast-travel.

If you're unfamiliar with the franchise, it allows you to fight massive creatures (and some of them you can even climb on), hire specialized friends (also known as pawns) to help you in combat, all while exploring an expansive world with a new region, Bitterblack Island, thanks to the Dark Arisen expansion. This is a great title to get lost in while you await your PlayStation 4.

You can take advantage of all these PS Plus benefits after tomorrow's PlayStation Store update.
