A Dragon's Dogma title update which features a new "Easy Mode" is now available for both Xbox 360 and PS3 in Europe, Capcom has announced.

In addition, a brand new playable demo is to be released for PS3 next week.

Available exclusively to PS3 owners on August 15 in Europe and August 21 in the US, the demo will feature access to Dragon's Dogma's character customisation screen before the player embarks on a quest to defeat the mighty Hydra and deliver one of its three heads to the castle.

As with the first demo, game saves can be picked up with the full game.
