Capcom's open-world hit, Dragon's Dogma, will receive a free update on August 6 which introduces an "easy mode" to make the game more accessible to beginners, reports Andriasang.

The new mode will be found in the options menu, with players able to switch difficulty whenever they like.

Currently the easy mode is only confirmed for release in Japan, but we're checking with Capcom Europe regarding the update's western release.

Earlier this week Capcom announced the game had sold 1.05 million copies worldwide, with the bulk coming from Japan.
