Dragon Ball FighterZ: A New Beta, An Open Beta Announced

Posted on September 17, 2017

This past weekend, FighterZ gathered in the ring to exchange blows of Dragon Ball proportions in the Dragon Ball FighterZ beta. This was a closed beta, meaning only some lucky members of the community could participate. On PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, only a fraction of Dragon Ball fans who wanted to participate in it. PlayStation 4 owners were limited by invitations, while on Xbox One there were issues and lobby limitations.

The goal of the DRAGON BALL FighterZ closed beta was simply to provide a stress tests for the game servers and gather player feedback on the gameplay and its balance in order to optimize the game before its release – it was not meant to be a demo. Even so, those who were unable to participate were left disappointed.

Well, there is good news! Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced there will be a new beta in the future -an open beta! This means anyone and everyone will have the opportunity to jump into the action!

When will the open beta take place? How many playable characters will there be? Will it be on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and maybe the Nintendo Switch? The answer to all of these questions is currently unknown. As soon as we know more, we hope to let you know right here on Saiyan Island!

Update: The open beta will be in January 2018

    i just wanna know the early access to the open beta for those of us who digitally pre ordered it, are we talkin a month early ? lol

    The game will only have 21 characters plus the two that already came with the pre-order, there will be NO MORE CHARACTERS WHEN THE GAME RELEASES(only as DLC in the future), better performance that’s for sure, i played the closed beta myself and i actually quite liked it a lot, but, the lack of characters is what bothers me the most…
