Dragon Ball FighterZ Open Beta Detailed, Watch the Latest Trailer
We’ve known that a Dragon Ball FighterZ open beta was happening since October, but now we have an exact date. Those that preorder the upcoming fighting game will gain early access to the beta on January 13, while it’ll be open to all players on January 14 and 15. While characters aren’t yet confirmed for the beta, it’ll give players one final chance to check out the Arc System Works developed title before it releases January 26, 2018.
Check out the latest Dragon Ball FighterZ trailer (which shows off Beerus, Goku Black, and Hit) below:

For even more on the fighting game, you can check out our E3 2017 Dragon Ball FighterZ preview in order to learn more. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say about it:
Since it is a Dragon Ball game, there’s also a big focus on mobility. By hitting the right trigger, players can use a special homing dash that’ll avoid Ki attacks. That’s not all, as they can also do a warp attack called Vanish that has players teleport behind their opponent and land an attack. That costs a gauge of energy, though, so it’s important that these special moves are used in moderation.
The fighting in Dragon Ball FighterZ is just as fun as it looks. The combat is instantly accessible to anyone that has played a fighting game, but there’s enough unique systems in play that competitive players will have to spend plenty of time learning the ins and outs. Going off of Arc System Works’ track record, this isn’t a game that Dragon Ball fans will want to miss out on.
Dragon Ball FighterZ will release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26, 2018.
