Dragon's Dogma Ii Reaveled 2

PSA: Don’t delete your Dragon’s Dogma 2 save files

You may be destined to your one save file.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 doesn’t allow players to have seperate save files, so PC players have taken matters into their own hands by deleting the files themselves. However, the Denuvo anti-tampering software may have something to say about it.

Deleting Dragon’s Dogma 2 save files may block you for 24 hours

Dragon’s Dogma 2 controversially does not support a New Game feature, and doesn’t allow you to access save files to load a previous iteration of your game. Although this heightens the experience when it comes to permanence to consequences that the game pushes, it is a mere irritation for most gamers and isn’t accessible.

Players have skirted around this issue by manually deleting their saves from the game’s files, which allows them to start a new game. This is mostly to allow them to create new characters if they’re unhappy with their current one. Tinkering with the character creation is very fun, and players may wish for do-overs.

However, Denuvo, the anti-piracy software, comes with a fair share of controversies itself. Upon deleting your save game, Denuvo counts you starting a new game as a “new activation.” It will permit up to five activations in a day before taking action. It will block your Steam account from playing the game for 24 hours if it detects what it believes is foul play.

Let me state that this information has been gathered from users on public forums, like Reddit and 4Chan. I have been unable to find a concrete source that lists all the consequences of deleting the save game from Dragon’s Dogma 2, but I believe that the many players reporting these problems is a suffice warning in general.

Also, even if you can get away with deleting your saves scot-free, there is little reason to do that to reset your character anyway, as the game gives you the tools to change your appearance and class in-game.

How to change your appearance and Vocation in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Instead of deleting your Dragon’s Dogma 2 save file and risking action from Denuvo, just play the game for another hour until you reach Vernworth.

In there, and then at other points in the game, you can purchase an item that can change you and your Pawn’s appearance. It does cost a fair amount of currency, but it can be earned in-game without too much trouble.

Also, upon visiting any Vocation Guild in any settlement will allow you to change your and your Pawn’s Vocation. So it’s not worth starting a whole new game for those reasons considering you can do it in-game at any time.

Many will be pleased to know they can change their Pawn’s looks and Vocation at any time, but most will still want to know how to get them to stop talking so damn much.
