Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2: DLC Pack 5 Zamasu Training, New Parallel Quests Gameplay

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC Pack 5, formally known as Extra Pack 1, brings players five new Parallel Quests that each feature one of the four new playable characters – Dabura, Super Buu (Gohan Absorbed), Android 13, and Tapion.

Along with that in DLC Pack 5 is a brand new master training – this time Zamasu steps up to teach you his moves! And this training isn’t like those of other masters. Some of Zamasu’s training commands specify button combinations that must be pressed prior to launching one of his specific move.

Take a look at the new Parallel Quests, playable characters, and master Zamasu’s training in the videos below! Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC Pack 5 is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and Switch for $9.99 USD. The PC/Steam Version of DLC Pack 5 is expected to be released on December 5, 2017. If you purchase the Extra Pack Set, which includes DLC Pack 5 and DLC Pack 6 (formally known as Extra Pack 2) as a bundle, it will be at a slight discount than if you purchase both separate – $16.99 USD. DLC Pack 6 has been announced for a release of February 2018 and will include 4 new playable characters (which may include Ultra Instinct Goku) and a new story mode.

    Damn how many DLC will this game have? I waiting for that complete edition

  • Yomi

    That horrible Deviantart Black in the thumbnail of these articles always get me.

  • Ahtma

    Just wait for XV3. It’s gonna have all of this content in it.

  • Basil Hawkins (The Mage)

    they tryna give it that tenkaichi feel…Its just jabooty

  • Jordan Wright-Stewart

    when we gonna get patch notes?

  • Ryumancer

    Took them long enough to release this sh!t. -_-

    They’ve been silent as fukk about the release date. Douchebags.

  • Koibito888

    Toriyama interview confirmed everything about SSJ some of us have been arguing for years – just goes to show most the info is there if you pay attention.

    And the SSJG info was also amazing.

  • Yomi

    Before it gets out of hand, we need to acknowledge that U6 Saiyans are of different biology so this revelation doesn’t apply to them as much.
    Cuz I know people will be all over Caulifla.

  • Raftleon

    lol you got me there, i was just about to say that would explain kelifa’s potential XD.

  • Raftleon

    i hope they do a special about ssg in the future the wandering continuous part got me kinda confused for about a good few seconds lol.

  • Koibito888

    The U6 Saiyans are of a different evolutionary path. They are different in that they have evolved, but they are still Saiyans, they have the same cells. Yes they are different but no we can’t start acting like the U6 Saiyans straight up don’t have the same cells that makes absolutely no sense.

    What we need to do is not make excuses about how things don’t apply to U6 Saiyans so that people can stop making excuses about how Caulifla and them getting SSJ doesn’t make sense when it does. They made sense before this really and now this just adds to it. It definitely does apply to them. It really is a reach to try and say this doesn’t apply to all Saiyans.

  • Koibito888

    Hell maybe thats what the 2018 Super movie domain is about lol.

  • Oncle SamGaming

    Seriously, the level of SPOILERS is GALACTIC when it comes to episode resumes !

  • Ahtma

    I haven’t seen that many people bringing it up yet but yeah, this is important to remember.

  • Datguy

    Mind providing a link?, and does it contain spoilers or just clarification on things that are already established?

  • Koibito888

    If it’s biologically down to the cellular level it applies to U6 Saiyans too. It’s a huge stretch to try and say that U6 Saiyans are fundamentally different on a cellular level just to try and say it can’t apply to them. Especially since this is new info coming out after the U6 Saiyans are a thing and no such difference is mentioned. With how specific the interview is, if there was a difference it would have been mentioned.

  • Koibito888

    twitter(.)com/Herms98/status/936097133731627008

    No spoilers. Just how SSJ works, confirmation on how Goten and Trunks got it so easy, and info about the original SSJ and SSJG.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    So a lot 9f ppl (mainly the ppl who still watches super) have been blowing up the Internet, getting mad at one another and the creator due to something about ssj. And all I can say is, you should have known better.

  • Ryumancer

    Midi-chlorians, got it. XD

    But it makes okay sense. lol

  • Ryumancer

    The explanation doesn’t sound bad at all really. It makes more sense than some of the other stuff Toriyama has explained in the past.

  • Koibito888

    It makes a lot more sense really – while midichlorians were biological to explain basically magic, at least here it’s a purely biological thing being explained purely biologically.

    Saiyans were always evolving quickly based on differences such as not having tails, being bred with humans, the physical evolution of SSJ, being a good hearted person was already obvious from Gohan’s demonstration of the ‘pure hearted kid snapping’ trope. Fans argued Goten and Trunks could go SSJ easy because they inherited it from their fathers for years so a lot of people at least already figured it was the case – Saiyans always changed based on environment and biology so specific cells produced under certain environmental and biological conditions just makes the most sense already.

  • Ryumancer

    Seems legit. They could’ve worked on the name of the cells a little bit but otherwise I don’t know why certain people are in an uproar about this.

  • Koibito888

    Honestly I like the name even, it’s very ‘Toriyama’ in how simple it is. If it got any more descriptive it just wouldn’t be his style so I think the name of em fits.

    Anyone who’s in an uproar is just biased against new information like most haters about Super.

  • Koibito888

    The explanation is fantastic and people who watch Super and are haters are just biased against new information. Instead of taking the clues plainly laid out they just give up and call it BS or do mental backflips to make things how they want them to be.

    It’s not a case of people should have known better, it’s a case of pay attention to the damn series and actually analyze information as it comes instead of just being a cynic for no good reason.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Well I couldn’t care less but from what I heard it sounds like he took the Naruto route

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Eh idc but I don’t get why he didn’t explains this after the Buu saga, I can only assume he did th8s just know due to complains from fans in super I guess

  • Koibito888

    How?

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Okay so you remember the whole Itachi vs Sasuke right, where Itachi use susanoo and the black flames right and the susanoo was only exclusive for Itachi. But later on Sasuke, Madara, Kakashi, and even Shisui were able to use Susanoo.

    Same thing for the ssj, they just gave ssj to whomever they wanted, tha5s how I see it. Don’t know why ppl are so upset with whatever they saw in super, heck when Goku stated how to go ssj3 was a big hint to it

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Tho tge only difference is Kishi explained it during his story not waited several years

  • Ryumancer

    It’s because he pulled it out of his a$$. XD

    Most of Toriyama’s work and lore are done “by the seat of his pants”. He hardly thinks that far ahead. He makes things up as he goes along. And it usually works out…kinda. lol

  • Ryumancer

    If anything he took the Star Wars prequel route. lol

  • Ryumancer

    It explains most things except Vegeta. He’s wasn’t gentle or benevolent when he first obtained the SSJ transformation. Sure he had the battle power. But that didn’t seem like what Toriyama was emphasizing in his explanation.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Ypu know what I said this to a fan 9f DB and all they could say it’s Akira word and never question him lol

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Which one?

  • Koibito888

    I mean I guess? You’re basically saying SSJ and Susanoo are the same thing because multiple characters had it because of their genetics, it’s a similarity but way too broad to be a Naruto thing, it’s more a trope.

  • Koibito888

    It usually works out great. That’s one of the best things that make DBZ into what it is, everything is simple and falls into place but over the time the extra details just come up when asked on the spot and when he gives it it’s consistent so it makes this deep method of how everything works that just fell into place in simple concepts.

    To what Anthony said thats why Toriyama doesn’t just explain it because like you said he doesn’t think ahead he just thinks rather specifically when it’s a concept he cares about (which hes admitted not every concept he is particular about, but some he is) and thats a good thing. It’s part of the charm that all the info is realized slowly but most of it is already supported in the series if only slightly, rather than just explaining it all at once. That’s the problem with the Super manga too that it just blurts out it’s explanations.

  • Koibito888

    Though that’s no reason to question Toriyama. It’s his manga, what he says goes and what he adds is canon regardless. What people need to do is think objectively about new info and figure it out as it comes instead of just questioning the writer because even if it makes no sense it’s still canon, luckily Toriyama’s stuff usually does make sense as most new info he comes out with is just stuff that makes sense to small details from the series anyway, and it’s not new he’s always done this so there’s no logical reason to really question him anyway.

  • Koibito888

    It wasn’t what Toriyama was emphasizing but it’s still a factor. Besides, when explaining how he went SSJ Vegeta’s specific trigger was a lack of caring. Yeah that’s not exactly benevolent but it’s sure is a hell of a lot more passive compared to where he was emotionally just before that, he literally went from a harsh environment (the exact opposite of what was just said to be what helped the development of those cells) to just giving up entirely which is a pretty big shift towards passiveness at least. He certainly made up for it in battle power too.

    It was definitely harder for Vegeta to attain too, which is something Toriyama somewhat notes in saying that the stated ways to increase S-Cells was why it came so easy to Goku – clearly Vegeta having a harder time than Goku meant that he did in fact have less of those cells because like you said he wasn’t gentle or benevolent. The above factors though logically would cause a spike in those cells and with the emotional trigger it, as the interview said, would cause an explosion of those cells.

    Vegeta had just enough it seemed is the point so it still does explain Vegeta.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    So when he says Goku can do something or clams nothing can match him, yet later was wrong. Does that mean he bs or forgot?

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Trope, Naruto or whatever . Tomato
    tomahto

  • Koibito888

    Lol difference being with one your statement is correct and he’s doing something specifically like Naruto and ‘taking the Kishi route’, and with the other your statement is completely incorrect and he’s not doing a Naruto thing at all but instead using a trope that Naruto/Kishi has no claim to.

  • Koibito888

    Well the way you phrased that is a little wonky, I don’t know how Toriyama would place something and then ‘be wrong’, I’m assuming you mean if he then introduces something different, but here’s what happens when the writer of a manga does this or that:

    If for instance Toriyama stated that no one could beat Goku, and then after that a new, stronger villain came up that did beat Goku, that doesn’t mean Toriyama was wrong or mistaken, it means that at the time that was true and then something new came. That’s just new information. It’s like King Piccolo being an alien instead of a demon, Toriyama wasn’t wrong, back then that’s what everyone thought he was and no one knew about aliens, it was just a new revelation of new information.

    If for instance Toriyama prevented a piece of info and then straight up said later that that info was never true, lets pretend for a second that Toriyama made up Cooler and the idea of Frieza’s extended family and that wasn’t just filler movie nonsense, if he created that idea and then that interview came out where he said Frieza was born alone and no other Frieza Race existed, then that would be a retcon. In which case the new information is the new canon.

    In neither case is he ‘wrong’. It’s his info and he decides the canon. As for whether he BS’ed or forgot, it actually doesn’t matter – the out of universe reason for things in the canon does not matter, what matters is what is canon in universe itself. If Toriyama BS’ed an explanation on the spot it doesn’t matter whether he did or not, what matters is that information in universe and instead of questioning the writer as if his info could somehow be non canon, people need to look at the info and the prior clues given and think about how it makes sense because if Toriyama says it then it’s the truth of the story.

    Luckily Toriyama usually doesn’t do any of these things. Most of the time when he adds new info it fits perfectly with the old info or just adds a new layer to it that makes sense or doesn’t contradict anything.

  • Ryumancer

    Episode 1.

    S-Cells? Midi-Chlorians? You remember, right?

  • Ryumancer

    True dat. That explains both Dragonball’s strength and its weakness. The awesome uniqueness of the concepts but sketchy execution of its plot.

    I dare say that if the plot were executed properly, paired with the awesome concepts, Dragonball would be the absolute best anime/manga in HISTORY…bar none. Naruto and One Piece wouldn’t be able to come CLOSE.

    But meh…nature has to balance out certain things somehow to give other franchises a chance. XD

  • Ryumancer

    Ah okay. Didn’t know the emotional trigger itself still increases the cells. Okay, I rescind my point then.

  • Koibito888

    Honestly I don’t think it would be better. Like I think the only thing ‘sketchy’ is that the info isn’t directly stated. The fact that these hidden layers of depth that just so happened to fall into place exist for you to look into, but that’s exactly what makes people keep thinking and wondering and obsessing about the series because they crave more. Thats why every DB fanfiction does go hard into the explanation, out of a need to fulfill that.

    Like for instance, SSJ2 is incredibly interesting because of the deeper info that came after the fact. Like if you look at what SSJ2 was in the series when it first showed up, all we got was that it was the next form, but if you watch how it happened and what steps Gohan went through you can figure out how it works. When they came out the time chamber the manga made a huge point to talk about how they didn’t seem like SSJ’s anymore, comparing their mastered states to their base form. Considering Gohan had to go through the exact same trigger to go SSJ2 as Goku did one, just an anger trigger with nothing really special other than he already was in SSJ. So you could think of SSJ2 as really just a trick to make SSJ activate on top of SSJ because SSJ feels like base form so the same trigger makes it happen again.

    Without getting into it there’s also art clues to hint that SSJ2 couldn’t be mastered. This makes it a far more interesting form than just ‘hey its the next form’. It’s this logical biological trick to double the effect at the cost of going passed natural limits and not be able to be mastered for a power boost.

    And what happens? Databook says SSJ2 doubles the SSJ’s power – well that would make complete sense given the idea its just stacking SSJ, recent interview Toriyama makes it out to be that SSJ2 can’t be mastered as was hinted, in series during the BoG arc King Kai straight up calls SSJ2 ‘going passed your limits’.

    Same with this. SSJ was obviously always a physical evolution so the idea that it came down to cells was just obvious, it just has a name now.

    Tl;dr whenever Toriyama comes out with new, deeper info it’s usually stuff we didn’t necessarily need to know in series but it then makes everything in series even more interesting to think about, and before you have that info you crave that info and think about it and try to figure out how it could all work.

    Basically I’m saying that instead, I think if Toriyama executed the plot by planning everything in advanced and going into detail in series that DB would actually not be as good a series that inspires such wonder.

    Honestly I think that’s a huge reason the manga is bad, because it just blurts out all the info right there and just leaves nothing to the imagination. I think how Toriyama does it, leaves it to the imagination only to confirm later is perfect and exactly how DB needs to be written. It’s a weakness but a weakness that makes the series as good as it is.

  • Koibito888

    Yeah, the emotional trigger increases the S-Cells and S-Cells increased to a certain level is what causes the physical change of SSJ. Gentle environments, kind hearts, high battle power all nurse/increase the number of S-Cells and the emotional trigger is an explosion of these cells. So with Vegeta suddenly going from harsh environment and heart to a suddenly passive state would cause an increase followed by the emotional trigger that would explode it.

    I love how well it explains everything. It was already obvious genetics made Goten and Trunks easier to learn it but to have that described just fits it so well.

    Especially U6. I mean Cabba learning it how he did, and Caulifla just following the exact physical process instructed already made sense as it was, but with all the other info prior to this like ‘Saiyans without tails learn faster’ (something he said a long time ago) and now with the gentle environment and hearts and REALLY high battle power now being confirmed to increase the cells needed for SSJ, it’s just so logical that now it actually wouldn’t make sense if Caulifla COULDN’T do it easily.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Oh

  • Anthony_weaver86

    I was referring Goku stating he can punch Beerus in another dimension in his ss2 form

  • Anthony_weaver86

    I.thought you were talking about the shows as well

  • Ryumancer

    I would partially disagree. While I do agree one would need weaknesses in order to have strengths in the first place, the weakness of the plot can be quite glaring and off-putting at times.

    Don’t get me wrong, Dragonball is still my all-time favorite anime franchise. And Toriyama is doing a good job. But his work could be a bit more consistent and explained better. Not the way the Super manga does it but you know what I mean. lol

  • Ryumancer

    Nope. Just the movies. lol

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Oh okay

  • Koibito888

    I’m not saying it in a general sense I’m saying that the lack of explanation is specifically one of the things that makes DB fun, it lets us think about how it can work in instances where we don’t need that info. Then when you find it out or better when it’s flat out confirmed it’s such a fun experience and kept fans thinking and wanting more of DBZ way after it ended. I honestly think DBZ would be lesser quality if things were explained more and it would deprive us of awesome moments like this where small, unneeded, but meaningful info comes out that confirms stuff that already made sense but it gets a new layer of depth to think about. I think it’s what makes concepts in DB interesting in the first place.

    DB is pretty consistent all things considered. Anything important at least. Power scaling is often misunderstood and criticized, especially in Super, but it all lines up if you look at it. Certain concepts like ‘potential’ that people just chalk up as nonsense to power Gohan up actually stays pretty consistent through the series. Toriyama’s inconsistencies usually boil down to meaningless things like where Goku’s Saiyan pod actually was which really just does not matter.

  • Koibito888

    Goku specifically stated “It is said, a Super Saiyan 2’s punch is so strong it can take you to another dimension”

    Not only does he go “it is said” immediately giving room for being incorrect, but Goku saying this immediately makes King Kai respond with a semi-sarcastic “what are you trying to do?” – it was very clearly a statement of Goku just talking crap. He’s talking big in this moment it is obviously character exaggeration.

    Goku didn’t say this and then prove it, he said it, another character expressed doubtful confusion at the statement and then Goku specifically did not ‘take Beerus to another dimension’. That doesn’t make Toriyama wrong it makes Goku wrong and purposely so as the scene was clearly depicting Goku merely talking big and then not following through.

    Thats not even a case of new information coming up to prove or disprove something it’s just a case of a character blatantly and purposely exaggerating. He was wrote to exaggerate in that moment, the writer intended for Goku’s statement to be incorrect.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Oh that I wasn’t aware of but, my point still stands for those who were upset due to super power scaling. They were expecting a better answer simular to how Z did their power ups, than some S cell

  • Koibito888

    S-Cells are the most logical and descriptive answer he could have given, I don’t understand what there is to complain about this was the best answer. It also has little to do with power scaling specifically.
