There’s a fake-out ending in Dragon’s Dogma 2, so you’ll need to take some extra steps to continue playing and get the true ending.

How to Get the True Ending in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Your opportunity to get the true ending in Dragon’s Dogma 2 happens just before the final battle with the dragon. After defeating the False Sovran in the “final” quest of the game, Legacy, you’ll ride on the dragon’s back to the final battlefield. It’s not a cutscene, though, and you have full control over your character while the dragon delivers a suspiciously long monologue about breaking the cycle.

To get the true ending, make your way to the center of the dragon’s back. You’ll notice that your controller will start to vibrate and your character’s chest will start to glow. Climb down to the dragon’s heart. While clinging to the dragon’s chest, open your inventory and use the Empowered Godsbane Blade. Your character will pull it out and you’ll be prompted to use it on yourself. Stab yourself with the sword to unlock the true ending.

This will plunge both you and the dragon into the sea, breaking the cycle of the dragon and the Arisen. You’ll end up in an apocalyptic version of the open world called the Unmoored World, and several more main story quests await you from this point on. Your first step will be to reunite with your lost Main Pawn, and the story will continue from there.

What to Do if You Miss the Dragon’s Dogma 2 True Ending

If you miss the true ending and go through with the dragon boss fight like normal, you’ll end up in a fake-out credits sequence in the grand hall of Vernworth Castle. You can’t skip these credits, and you’re free to walk around and take in the sights now that you’re the true ruler of the kingdom.

If you want to get the true ending, however, you don’t need to play the entire game again. There’s a way to reset to right before the final fight. To do so, seek out the ghostly hooded figure sitting near the throne. Speaking to him the first time will only get you some cryptic dialogue, so you’ll need to find him a second time nearby.

If you keep speaking to the hooded figure, you’ll eventually be warped right back to the dragon’s back before the final boss battle, giving you the chance to use the Empowered Godsbane Blade to get the true ending.
