Xenoverse 2 launched on October 25, 2016 to positive reception, with critics praising the game’s art, gameplay variety, online play, and more. It’s one of many Dragon Ball games available for PS4, with an emphasis on RPG mechanics as opposed to simple 2.5D fighting found in the Budokai series.
There has been some controversy from the community concerning Xenoverse 2’s support. Some think the publisher is “milking” the series since DLC still continues to release for an almost three year old game. Others are of the mind that it’s great to see such support and gladly accept it.
Earlier in March, we reported on a story about a free-to-play ‘lite’ version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 coming to PS4s. This can be downloaded on PS4 right now at no additional charge
If you’re looking for more Dragon Ball goodness, Bandai Namco is working on Dragon Ball Z Kakarot, which had a meaty reveal at E3 2019. We actually got to try it at the show, so you can read our preview here. There is no release date for Kakarot, but it’s expected to launch in 2020.
