Players who have picked up Bandai Namco's recently released fighting game Dragon Ball Xenoverse have reported issues accessing the game's online multiplayer servers.
The Dragon Ball Z Games Facebook page recently posted an update notifying players that the game's servers had been updated with "several optimizations" which would improve the login rates for multi-lobbies. "We will continue to monitor and fine-tune both server and client side processes to raise the login rate to 100% success very soon," the post read. Bandai Namco's Twitter account also confirmed that server updates would be rolling out "over the next few days," as well as multiple responses to complains explaining that a patch would be released tonight.
@BlackViperCold Yep - Are you getting that error right now? We are also deploying a patch later this evening.— Bandai Namco Games (@BandaiNamcoUS) March 9, 2015
We tested the PlayStation 4 version of the game in the office and encountered issues accessing both the Online Parallel Quest and Online Battles features. GameSpot has reached out to publisher Bandai Namco for comment. We'll update this story with more details as they emerge.
Xenoverse was originally scheduled to launch in early February, but was delayed for a week to "ensure the highest possible gameplay experience" for players. The game is developed by Dimps, who also worked on the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai series and assisted development on Street Fighter IV. The game is available for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. A PC release on Steam will follow on February 27.
