In addition to traditional battles, story mode, side missions, parallel quests, Expert Missions, and Master Quests, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will have what are known as Raid Quests. Bandai Namco Entertainment has not yet officially announced this new type of mission, however, developer Dimps implemented it in the beta this past weekend. According to what was in the beta, for Raid Quests:
All Players in Conton City are participants in these event quests and must work together to achieve the objectives in a limited amount of time. Raid Quests are only availible when connected to the XENOVERSE server, and any scheduled Raid Quests will be announced in Conton City. Check the News Board in the Reception Area for details.
From our understanding, and we could be wrong, Raid Quests are team-based battles that rely on all of the Time Patrollers. These are time-limited events, meaning they only occur at certain times decided by Bandai Namco or Dimps. So the blue sphere or dimension portal that is seen in the sky and at the Resort District in the video below will not always be there.
In a single Raid Quest lobby, six players can participate, similar to Expert Missions. There can be multiple Raid Quest lobbies. However, unlike Expert Missions, it seems the results of these multiple Raid Quest lobbies contribute to the overall result of the Raid Quest. The beta did not list what the objective of the Raid Quest were or win/lose conditions, but it involved a heated battle with Majin Vegeta. As the video below indicates toward the end, as time went by, it seemed as Majin Vegeta only grew in strength. We wonder what the ultimate objective of Raid Quests are and if any experience points will be gained. We should know for sure within the next 10 days and hope to let you know right here on Saiyan Island!
