Dragon Ball FighterZ Open Beta Returns This Week

Good news for those plagued by the connection issues during the Dragon Ball FighterZ open beta that took place this past weekend. Bandai Namco announced that the Dragon Ball FighterZ open beta extended date will in fact take place. It will begin on January 18 at 12 a.m. ET, and will last through January 19 at 12 a.m. ET. That gives players a full 24 hours of extra play.

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.
