Dragon Ball FighterZ Xbox One Beta Going On Now For A Limited Time
Xbox One players have another chance to try the Dragon Ball fighting game before it releases.
Bandai Namco's highly anticipated Dragon Ball FighterZ arrives on consoles and PC in only a few more days, but some players have another chance to try the game out ahead of its release. The publisher is holding another open beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ today, January 24, and unlike the most recent test, this round is available exclusively to Xbox One players.
The Xbox One beta is going on now and ends tonight at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET, giving you a few hours to jump in and try out the Dragon Ball fighting game before it launches later this week. This beta includes the same roster and features as the previous round of tests, but Bandai Namco says it has "made the necessary improvements in order to enable X1 users to experience Dragon Ball FighterZ in all of its online multiplayer glory."
The pervious Dragon Ball FighterZ beta took place last week and was available on both PS4 and Xbox One. It was originally scheduled to end on January 16, but due to persistent network issues, Bandai Namco held another round of testing for both platforms on January 17; however, the Xbox One version still suffered from problems that prevented many players from participating. The beta featured 11 playable characters, including a handful of recently announced fighters like Beerus, Kid Buu, adult Gohan, and Nappa.
Dragon Ball FighterZ releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26. The game has been very well received by critics. GameSpot's Peter Brown called it "a Dragon Ball fighting game that can go toe-to-toe with the best of the genre" in our Dragon Ball FighterZ review in progress and said, "Even if you think Dragon Ball is old hat, and even if you're intimidated by fighting games, there's a good chance you'll be drawn into the explosive action and personalities that expertly evoke the anime's infectious spirit."
