Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2: Jiren and 17 Join DLC Pack 6, Free Update Includes SSGSS Transformation

The final pack of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is hitting PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC/Steam in February 2018. Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 DLC Pack 6 (officially known as Extra Pack 2) will contain Jiren and the Dragon Ball Super version of Android 17 as playable characters. They join the previously confirmed character Fu in this DLC pack.

For the unfamiliar, Jiren is a member of the Pride Trooper and the strongest warrior from Universe 11. He was first introduced in Dragon Ball Super in the currently-running Universe Survival Saga. In Xenoverse 2, he will have special moves such as Mediation and a Power Rush which no other character can contain! The Dragon Ball Super version of Android 17 will bring new abilities not seen by the Dragon Ball Z version of him in Xenoverse 2, which includes the ability absorb attacks and fight with a new style!

DLC Pack 6 will also contain a a new story mode where players will embark on Time Patrol missions with their Master! Fu will play what seems to be the role of a villain. In addition, with DLC Pack 6, players will also be able to customize existing Dragon Ball (DB) characters like Goku and Vegeta! This includes customization of attacks, costume, and colors. An example given within the screenshots in the video below is of Adult Gohan being given the Father-Son Kamehameha, an attack that was previously exclusive to Teen Gohan and your created character! Lastly, there will be new outfits available that seem they can be worn by existing DB characters. Goku is seen sporting a Journey to the West garb and Hercule is wearing his Super Saiyan battle with Beerus reenactment costume from Dragon Ball Super.

Along with DLC Pack 6 will be a free update. This update will include a new battle system, new avatar skills and new special costumes for Dragon Ball characters! Limit Burst is the new battle system that can be used once per battle. Players can dramatically increase their ability temporally depending on the number of members in the enemy team. The type of boost will also differ based on the fighter. Some characters may power up their team members whilst some may lower the status of the opponent.

The free update will also bring a new avatar Awaken Skill with the “Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan” (SSGSS) where players will be able to feel the power of the Gods and be transformed to the infamous “Blue Form”! Finally new swimsuits will be available for Android 18 and Videl in the free DLC Pack 6 update. You can take a look at a slideshow of all the screenshots for DLC Pack 6, paid and free, in the videos below.

  • Finally a god form…might just go back to see that

  • Paul Watson

    Saiyan Exclusive Tho, lol.

  • Paul Watson

    Saiyan Island, Ya’ll So Late On This, Lmao.

  • randy191993

    Little error: Father-Son Kameha could not be used by the created character, only by Teen Gohan. Unless you modded of course, but that way you could get every attack.

  • Otto Suwen

    What did u expect?

  • KDG

    Favorites was played 20 years ago. The game is merely following the trend the anime it is based off started years ago.

  • KDG

    I wonder if Super Saiyan Blue will be exclusive to custom characters, or if we can now equip it to Goku and Vegeta, and eliminate the separate versions.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    I hope in DBX3 they let us customize how we want ss to look like, both hair style and color. Make your own god form, and for other races give them God ki

  • LastationLover5000

    I’m not sure what you expected, Megalan. Saiyans have Super Saiyan, Super Saiyan Second Grade, Super Saiyan Third Grade, Super Saiyan Fourth Grade, Super Saiyan 2, Super Saiyan 3, Super Saiyan God, Super Saiyan Blue, completed Super Saiyan Blue, Super Saiyan Rosé, Super Saiyan Rage, Super Saiyan Rampage, and Vegeta’s new form. Gohan’s “Ultimate Gohan”, according to the Daizenshū, is actually a completed Super Saiyan 2. If you count Gokū’s unique Ultra Instinct, that’s another transformation. That is FIFTEETN transformations, and that’s only if you count what is canon. Non-canon has Super Saiyan 4, Psuedo-Super Saiyan, and Super Saiyan (B-type) (Broli’s “Legendary Super Saiyan”). That’s another three. This makes a total of 18. If you count Kafla’s mastered Rampage/mastered B-type, that’s an 19th. Saiyans have had more transformations for years. It isn’t XenoVerse’s fault that they’re including another one.

  • LastationLover5000

    How. Are. You. Surprised. Paul?

  • LastationLover5000

    Remember, we ALL have god ki. We’ve trained with Beerus. We’ve trained with Whis. Zamasu explicitly does a ritual to make a god. We’ve had God ki since XV1

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Okay then changing the color of your ki

  • LastationLover5000

    Now THAT I can dig

  • Koibito888

    Just training with them doesn’t magically grant God Ki you actually have to learn to turn your Ki into God Ki.

    How did Zamasu make a God? What?

    Lol no we did not have God Ki in XV1

  • Koibito888

    Gohan’s ‘Ultimate’ is only a completed SSJ2 because it literally lets him reach that power in base form without transforming. Old Kai could do this to anyone of any race. UI is a technique not a transformation but that ‘broken shell’ state is also something not Saiyan exclusive, UI itself also can be learned by anyone. I mean yeah you’re right but you’re exaggerating by a couple forms.

  • LastationLover5000

    We did have it in XenoVerse1. Beerus outright stated he would teach us to use it because we needed it to use his techniques. Go redo his training in the first game.

    If my memory serves — I blocked out a lot of the latest DLC — Zamasu did the ritual to make us a god. I’d have to check that too but yeah.

  • LastationLover5000

    I’m not exaggerating by much and that’s the thing. While. Old Kaiōshin can indeed do it to anyone, Gohan’s is still described as a completed SSJ2 in the databook. My point stands. Gokū, a Saiyan, obtained a transformation that allows him to use the technique Ultra Instinct. My point still stands. Anyone complaining that Saiyans can transform more than other races in XV2 like its some sort of shock has not watched the same here

  • Koibito888

    If he did I’m fairly certain it didn’t remain canon because I definitely just went over the Future Warrior page entirely and nothing of God Ki is mentioned. Not to mention a lot of the characters that mentor you would be pretty impossible in conflict with the story.

    In any case we definitely don’t have it in 2 as its a different character

    Though ew a ritual to become a god…

    I love XV but jeez do I wish they didn’t make us a mary sue and actually followed the Online plot more closely, the story is so weak in times like this.

  • Koibito888

    Yeah like I said you’re right, it’s just with those last forms Potential unleashed would be the same thing for everyone practically with their power depending on. It’s not unique to Gohan other than his power but the form is the same for everyone and is universal.

    Also the form does not allow Goku to use UI. The form and technique have nothing to do with one another Goku achieved both coincidentally under the same circumstances.

    Goku can even activate UI separate from the form and did so against Kefla, dodging multiple blasts before turning the form itself on.

    Plus Vegeta literally just got the same form just in Blue and it did not allow him to use UI either.

  • Finally, new swimsuits for 18 and Videl! I’ve been waiting so long! I knew there was a reason I bought this game. lolz

  • Paul Watson

    U Forgot Kefla’s Super Saiyan 2.

  • Paul Watson

    Who Said I Was Surprised? Lmao

  • Word.

  • LastationLover5000

    I didn’t say go read Dragon Ball wiki. Go check the game, if you must. But *never* use Dragon Ball wiki for reference, just..ugh.

  • LastationLover5000

    Incorrect. Gokū and Vegeta’s new forms are not the same. Gokū’s new form is referred to as “Ultra Instinct”, as he himself said so. Kafla asked him if it was that “Ultra-whatever” and he replied that it was Ultra Instinct. Furthermore, when he used Ultra Instinct to dodge her techniques, Gokū had already begun the transformation. His hair was spiking up, his aura was beginning to change, the glow was clinging to his body. Like it or not, that form is what allows Gokū to use Ultra Instinct, and yes, they both have VERY MUCH to do with each other. When Gokū broke through his shell, he achieved a form called “Ultra Instinct” that allows him to use “Ultra Instinct”. This form, until further notice, is unique to him. “Ultra Instinct” is not typically a transformation; notice that Whis didn’t recognise the form; it was Gokū’s moving without thought that made him realise this was Ultra Instinct. Furthermore, in the manga — which is canon and supervises by Toriyama, so it is as canon as the Super anime — Beerus’ Ultra Instinct is not a “transformation”, but a skill.

    Vegeta’s form is something different. He broke through his shell, yes, but his form isn’t “Ultra Instinct”. His form is an expansion of the “Super Saiyan Blue” transformation. Just because both forms have similar eyes doesn’t mean they are the same, or Super Saiyan Third Grade and Super Saiyan (B-type) are the same ‘cos the users get really buff. See how dumb that sounds?

  • NinetalesCommander

    Took ya long enough, this is old news.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Also I find it funny that our character’s have god ki yet it doesn’t look like it

  • LastationLover5000

    Welcome to Dimps and Bandai, where no one cares but our money is stolen.

  • KDG

    Weird. I remember everyone praising Dimps and the Budokai series (and by extension, Burst Limit) during the Tenkaichi and Raging Blast days. Now everybody hates Dimps? 0.o

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Lol

  • Koibito888

    I mean yeah you’re 100% right the wiki is garbage. I just wanted to see if it was listed as a common thing that everyone knows about.

    Point still stands though, not sure every master if any are actually canon and still the XV2 character wouldn’t have it.

  • Koibito888

    God Ki doesn’t look like anything, it’s just Ki. Beerus doesn’t transform to use God Ki it’s just there lol.

  • Koibito888

    Goku did not say his form was Ultra Instinct the only time he mentioned it was “so this is the power of UI” while he was using it while the two abilities are completely separate. Nothing about ‘breaking your shell’ relates to a technique in which you achieve fighting without thinking, those two things logically do not cause one another. It was coincidence it is not a form and that is nonsensical to the description of the ability to this point.

    The fact of the matter is that Vegeta broke his shell. Like lets say you’re right and that Goku breaking his shell let him use UI, the only thing that let him use UI in this scenario was breaking your shell. If breaking your shell gives you UI then it would for everyone. Breaking your shell AND UI are things everyone can do and so if breaking your shell grants you UI then that’s it bottom line. There is no subtle different nuance of how you break your shell, now THAT sounds stupid. Goku just so happened to break his shell while falling unconscious while still pushing and that push and fight while unconscious emulated UI thereby granting him the technique.

    Vegeta broke his shell and it gave him the same eyes and aura AND hair effect, just in Blue. It is literally the same thing. This is DBZ it’s forms are driven by logic, this is not super magical time where everyone’s powers differ by their character for no reason whatsoever. If Goku went Blue while in this form it would be the same exact thing. It is not an extension of Blue it is not a Saiyan form it is the state of breaking your shell which gives you pupil eyes and a sparkly aura and more pronounced hair, just with blue stacked on it.

    And on SSJ Berserk, no, that actually doesn’t sound stupid and you know why? Vegeta called it the truest form of a Saiyan, it is literally everything that makes SSJ 3rd grade but MORE, AND most importantly it can be mastered. Stacked forms like SSJ2, 3, can’t be mastered, ONLY natural forms can. This means Berserk is in fact a form extended from SSJ and not stacked atop it, and as such can ONLY be a further extension of the Grades.

  • Ryumancer

    I’d think of EA and Rockstar before Dimps and Bandai in that regard.

  • LastationLover5000

    You’re obviously pretty thick, so I’m going to make this my last response and keep it brief.

    Gokū, when ASKED what his form was, said it was Ultra Instinct. Gokū’s form is therefore called Ultra Instinct. This form, which is called Ultra Instinct, allows him to use Ultra Instinct.

    Vegeta’s new form stems from Super Saiyan Blue. His shell was broken differently and is not Ultra Instinct. Similarities in eyes the same form do not make.

    Vegeta surmised that Berserk was be Super Saiyan’s truest form but this was his conjecture at best. Perhaps we’ll find out more later.

    I made it all quick and easy to follow. Have a good day.

  • Koibito888

    Same to you.

    Forms granting techniques makes no sense in the world of DBZ. It was coincidence. Name aside. As you said with Beerus it’s not a transformation. You can’t just have a form that grants a general technique as if that’s how it always is. It was purely circumstantial and is not true across the board. Breaking your shell does not inherntly give you UI, there is no difference between breaking shells. Goku’s form and circumstance pushed him to use of UI coincidentally and that is all.

    There is no ‘breaking shells differently’ there is a shell and there is breaking it, that’s it. Also don’t downplay it, similarities in the eyes only sure, but the form is a similarity in the eyes, aura, hair AND method of doing so. Grand Priest even said that he broke his shell ‘just like Goku’, ergo he broke his shell exactly the same as Goku.

    In character and plot yes conjecture, but as a writing tool the writers made Vegeta say this to hint at the nature of the form. If this wasn’t the case he either would not have said it or his statement would have been disproven and so until that happens it is a fact about the form with which one can use for speculation.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    I didn’t say anything about transforming when Beer7s uses his powers he glows showing his god ki and as we have seen with ssg and ssb they are different compare to the plan ki

  • Koibito888

    Yes but SSJG and Blue are transformations and so they have a more pronounced look.

    Goku and Vegeta in base just using God Ki looks no different except maybe a slightly brighter aura, just using God Ki causes no real change was my point

  • Anthony_weaver86

    They dont use god ki in their base form if that was the case why is Goku struggling over ppl with no God ki, last time I checked he got rekted by female broly and she doesn’t have god ki. God ki and plan ki are two different kinds of ki which can be obtain, and yes you don’t need god ki in order to be at the same level seeing as Freiza used a a $$pulled on the plot

  • Koibito888

    Damn that is a really good question I hope we can

  • Koibito888

    They do use God Ki in their base forms. That was the whole reason base and SSJ1 Goku could fight with Beerus still after losing SSJG (which was directly explained), and it’s why base Goku could fight evenly with newly powered up final form Frieza.

    If you’re talking about when Kale bodied Blue Goku he was obviously using God Ki then being in Blue. If you mean later with Base Goku fighting weaker enemies he was specifically weakened by his first use of UI and the ‘broken shell’ form.

    God Ki isn’t even really a completely separate form of Ki it is a held in and heightened state of regular Ki.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    That whole Goku using god ki in his ss form during his fight with Beerus was a one time thing, until he could make his own god ki. Seeing as if he did have mastery over god ki during that fight his ss would have just been blue or at least have a different shade in their aura.

    And no I was referring when Goku was in ss when fighting her than turn blue

  • Koibito888

    Yeah, it was a one time thing until he could do exactly that naturally. In fact if you remember before Goku went SSJ in the tournament it was assumed by characters that they could not even go regular SSJ anymore. It was a big surprise to them when he did it, even the preview to that episode the week prior focused on it because it was the automatic assumption that they just were using God Ki now after learning it in base and SSJ. When Goku did it he was asked why his hair isn’t Blue and he said that he just wasn’t at full power yet. He has to be in a full power or 100% state along with God Ki to actually go Blue not just have God Ki at all.

    Yeah and when he went Blue she still wrecked him.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    Yeah cause god ki is his 100% also the whole him not going ss anymore was bad information on Akira or who ever made that whole Goku can go ssj any more only God. And b4 you continue I just want you to know I don’t watch super as much or at all as you, so I’d you say something that happens in the manga or show I wouldn’t know.

    Yes she rekt him in his ss form in which you claim he has god ki in it, if he or even Vegeta had god ki in their base form they would be at least in Beerus 1 or 3 % in power, or at the level of ss3. But that’s not the case seeing as ppl like Krillian the others can sense Goku and Vegeta’s ki while I’m base and ss form. Heck they can even keep up with their movements even Bulma could see

  • Koibito888

    No, God Ki increases his power but he can be using God Ki without being in a full power state.

    It wasn’t ‘bad info’ it just took time to be revealed, the point is that this was caused by the fact that Goku and Vegeta were using God Ki in their base form and went straight to Blue. And you don’t watch but during the tournament arc that’s what happened, characters were surprised he could even go regular SSJ because even in universe it was meant to be that characters knew he uses God Ki in base form.

    Yes, and then what happened is Goku fought her in Blue which does have God Ki in it and she still wrecked him so that has no bearing on whether or not SSJ1 has God Ki, she ruined him in both forms.

    Bulma makes no sense as she would not be able to see much lower feats of speed. As for sensing Ki, he can when they are not holding in their Ki, which in the anime is explained to be what makes God Ki – holding in your Ki and raising it.

  • Anthony_weaver86

    What your saying makes no sense seeing as if they were using god ki it would have changed their aura slightly, it’s like Naruto using his own chakra or using Kyubi or even sage. Pretty much how Trunks was able to go w.e form he was in in that dumb arc with black.

    And it was bad info seeing as they did say they would not need or won’t be going ssj anymore as blue was going to be their only transformation, just like how Akira stated going won’t be going any of the stages of ss and only focusing his base and ss.

    It does seeing as ppl were say8ng Goku wasn’t going all out in his blue form aka not implying god ki in his ss. If Goku was using god ki in his base and other form he wouldn’t need to go blue to fight her

  • Koibito888

    You’re making an assumption. That is not the case. There is a difference between using God Ki and doing so with transformations. Again Beerus using his Ki just shows his own purple Ki there is no universal appearance of God Ki on it’s own unlike transformations and transformations with God Ki applied to them.

    Also they never said they wouldn’t be going SSJ anymore, it was just the natural assumption because it was in fact known by then that they used God Ki in base form. Again Goku did it in BoG and then by RoF they both could do it naturally and that’s how Goku in base could fight Frieza, it was a fact they were using God Ki in base by that point and then they just powered up to Blue. So it was assumed not said. And then it was revealed they still could as a twist, it was a twist not bad info and that twist exists because God Ki in base form is in fact what they were doing.

    They don’t do it all the time mind you. God Ki is NOT like Kyuubi or Sage Chakra it is NOT a separate form of Ki to tap into. It is a technique of Ki, it is a different state of the exact same Ki. They explain God Ki is made by holding in your Ki and raising it (and even show them learning to do this in base form) and so they are not in constant use of it. But they do infact use it.

    Also on Toriyama saying that about SSJ2 and 3, he said Goku probably wouldn’t use them anymore and even though he has used them, Goku very specifically only uses those forms when playing around or sparring. He’s not once used SSJ2 in serious context, only specifically to use a weaker form to test the waters (they even explain this when he first meets and tests out Black’s power) and for 3 he only used it twice – once showing off to Trunks, and once against Caulifla and Kale where he ‘got too excited’ literally accidentally using it before he went back so Toriyama’s point still very much stands. Not bad info.

    ” If Goku was using god ki in his base and other form he wouldn’t need to go blue to fight her”
    That doesn’t make sense. He needed Blue to fight her, SSJ1 using God Ki (but not enough to cause the change to Blue) is still weaker than Blue, if he needed Blue to fight her then SSJ1 with God Ki would not have been enough either way.

  • KDG

    Likewise. I’ve always hated that they are permanently transformed.

  • hello fool

    looks like this pack is doing alot of things that modders accomplished a long ass time ago

  • Anthony_weaver86

    So in one of those previous why does the other dude with the mustache have the same ki as Beerus

  • Koibito888

    He doesn’t. He just has purple ki, beerus’ is a darker purple. Also toppo hasn’t actually charged up his energy with an aura and everything he has only fired blasts so he did not have a basic ki aura that then changed because of God ki.

  • dbz

    wow you are able to go ssgodss with your created characters now that’s amazing

  • Rodrigo Monterier

    Still no AI use awoken

  • chris

    Dimps USED to have quality employees.
    It’s no longer the same team.

  • CheeseGraterToForehead

    yeah they did something modders could do since the first release.

  • Videl Gamer Girl

    What do you mean we’ve had it since Xenoverse 1? Your Xenoverse 2 character is a completely different character in case that wasn’t obvious. Your Xenoverse 2 character never fought Demigra or trained with Beerus in the first game or did any of that stuff in Xenoverse 1.

  • Videl Gamer Girl

    In the first game Maijin get more moves than any other race and nobody was complaining. Stop complaining about sh*t that should have been in the game from the start. Seriously it’s a joke that we had to wait this long for a transformation most PC modders have had since Xenoverse 1.

  • Leafy21

    Saiyans are the main race in the anime..?

  • Sheldon D Goodrich

    any chance on super saiyan rosé?

  • Sheldon D Goodrich

    and maybe update the game so u stay transformed during cutscenes in storymode ;P

  • Angus Mackenzie

    we’re getting super saiyan blue and yet our hair STILL DOESNT SPIKE UP……are you serious dimps? why? why are you so LAZY?? and what do you mean by ‘infamous ssjb’?

  • Angus Mackenzie

    ….do you guys just watch the fighting and not read what their saying? the purple auras toppo and beerus have is an aura exclusive to the GoD’s, what it is is they surround themselves in the energy of destruction. it’s a technique

  • Angus Mackenzie

    ikr, it makes no sense for them to not be able to go in and out of blue, same with frieza. could argue that they still haven’t worked out a damage multiplier for the god forms but they’ve had a while now

  • Angus Mackenzie

    there’s so much stupid here i won’t bother jumping in

  • ? elaborate

  • Megalan

    Are you asking or telling?

  • Mikoto Misaka

    Well the skill is called SSGSS and not SSB. And apparently we will be able to change the colors of moves. I’m thinking that perhaps SSGSS might have alternate skins that allow for rose form.

  • Mikoto Misaka

    think of it this way. Some people were already furious that they couldn’t keep their clothes as Pure Majin form, some people might not WANT their hairstyle to change when they turn SSJ. For Dimps, who are lazy, they would rather not take that risk. For one thing, Female Saiyans look terrible with Goku SSJ hairstyle, and we know they’d just add the same style of hair for every SSJ transformation just like with SSJ 3, cause they are the laziest crappers in the universe. Now, a good Xenoverse game would allow you to customize what you look like in your awakened forms on the initial character creation screen of the entire game. I don’t have high hopes, but I’m hoping maybe that might happen in this DLC but are keeping it quiet like Ultra Instinct Goku. After all, they spent around 2 months still developing this since the announcement, so they are definitely making a bigger effort on this DLC.

  • Mikoto Misaka

    I think that was supposed to already be a feature, but the game is glitched on that, but it doesn’t present too much of a problem so they didn’t bother to fix it. Remember in the Beta, you stayed transformed after you finished pvp battles. And sometimes when you go Super Saiyan 3 and your character has black eyes, during cutscenes your eyes will appear to be light gray. There were plenty noticeable glitches in the story mode that were VERY obvious an apparent in the case of Dimp’s laziness to make a decent game. My Character is a Pan (teen) with Potential Unleashed, so I don’t worry too much about transformations in cut scenes anymore..

  • Mikoto Misaka

    That was the ritual for Potential Unleashed, not God Ki. It was what Elder Kai did for Gohan to make him Ultimate Gohan. It actually didn’t work, Zamasu doesn’t know how to do that crap properly, it was meant mainly for comedy relief.

  • Mikoto Misaka

    And remember, we learned Broly’s moves by mimicking him, and we can’t go LSSJ. Dimps isn’t good at researching for the game, mainly cause unlike FighterZ, they don’t get that many spoilers for Super. One of the reasons why we can expect this version of Jiren to be minimal quality at best. Only the moves revealed by Dragon Ball Heroes, and his English voice actor BEFORE his voice is fully developed. Much like with Hit and Goku Black base form. (we still don’t even know if Rose Goku Black is still british, but judging from Fighterz’s dialogue, most likely yes.)

  • Sheldon D Goodrich

    sweet yeah

  • Sheldon D Goodrich

    still i hope they fix it if it is a bug and if not hope they add it as a feature

  • FlamingSilver

    Real question here..can we just change our outfit color?
    Example. If I’m wearing goku gi outfit I should have the ability to change the color to my liking. As much as I like wearing a certain db character current outfit I would like to change the color to my liking.
