Dragon Quest Heroes II Getting A Ton Of Free Downloadable Content

Dragon 2

In case you missed it, we just dropped our review for Dragon Quest Heroes II, Square Enix’s follow-up to the hit action game. It’s good fun, even with its mild flaws – and it’s just about ready to pick up in terms of content.

That’s because Square Enix officially noted on the Dragon Quest Twitter account that it will be dropping a good amount of free downloadable content for both the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game over the next month.

“Here is a handy guide to all the FREE updates we’re adding to #DQ Heroes II on PS4 and @steam_games,” the company noted. “Lots to come & look forward to!”


The image above breaks down what you have coming your way, but if you want a better idea in text breakdown, you can find it below:

May 4

  • Side Quest: Episode Maribel & Ruff
  • Side Quest: Episode Torneko

May 11

  • Side Quest: Episode Carver & Terry
  • Side Quest: Episode Meena & Maya
  • Special Boss Map: Estark
  • Quest for the ultimate co-op spell: Kazzaple 

May 18

  • Side Quest: Episode Jessica & Angelo
  • Side Quest: Episode Alena & Kiryl
  • Additional Characters for Multiplayer mode #1: Luceus, Aurora, Bianca & Nera

May 25

  • Additional Characters for Multiplayer mode #2: Dorik, Yangus, Isla & Psaro
  • Special Boss Map: Dragon Lord

June 1

  • Monster Medal Battle: Play online multiplayer competitively against players from around the world 

That’s a lot of great stuff to enjoy on the house, along with the already loaded amount of Heroes that you get to play as in the game, as well as the various side quests and, of course, like any good Warriors game, tons of enemies to mow down to size, using a number of stylish attacks. And the fact you can switch between various Heroes over the course of your adventure is rather helpful too, as you can mix things up and see who suits you best in terms of gameplay.

There may be more coming after the month of May as well, so we’ll keep you informed of any new additions coming to the game! Some could even be announced as soon as E3.

Dragon Quest Heroes II is available now for PlayStation 4 and PC.
