Capcom is going to be releasing Dragon's Dogma Online for PC/PS4/PS3 early next week. However, those of you that bought the limited edition can start playing as early as the 27th.

However, I use the term "Closed Beta" because the game will have a data wipe before the official real Open Beta. More details about the testing date and schedule below.
