Release Date: Tuesday, September 4, 2018

  • See it on Amazon for $59.88 (PS4 or PC)

From our Review: Quest XI is a distilled, energetic, mathematically elegant epic that takes what I love most about traditional dungeon crawlers and masterfully iterates on the formula. On the surface, Dragon Quest XI seems to be a simple return to the single-player RPG format, after deviating into MMO territory for Dragon Quest X. But that simplicity is a purposefully-crafted facade that melts away after a little time in the immense, complex world. Dragon Quest isn't simple… it's pure. I've been plugging away in Dragon Quest XI's sprawling environments for well over 65 hours and I just want to keep going.
