Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot's Golden Frieza DLC Arrives This Month

The wait has been Krillin me.


After a long wait, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot's next DLC, A New Power Awakens - Part 2, finally has a release date of November 17. Based on the Resurrection of F film (which was later adapted into a story arc in the Dragon Ball Super anime series), the iconic Dragon Ball Z villain Frieza has been resurrected and is stronger than ever.

The story DLC will arrive on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and with backwards compatibility on next-gen consoles, you'll also be able to play the expansion on Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, and PS5.

In the DLC, Goku and Vegeta will have to face off against Frieza, who has been brought back to life and is ready for a grudge match. While Frieza has a new transformation that puts him on par with the Saiyan heroes, they'll also be able to transform into a new state that gives them more power and brighter-colored hair than ever before.

You can view the Super Saiyan Blue transformation and the battle with Golden Frieza below in a gameplay preview from Bandai Namco:

Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot's first story DLC in April also allowed players to further increase their power with the Super Saiyan God transformation during their battle with the god of destruction Beerus. That ability allowed for an increase in attack power without needing to sacrifice energy, and Super Saiyan Blue further refines that power-up and its emphasis on perfect Ki control. There's also an indicator of how much energy you'll need to pull off an attack that can demolish an entire planet, which is useful.

This hasn't been the only DLC that Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot received during the months-long gap between episodes, as an entirely new card game where players assemble decks of famous Dragon Ball Z characters and battled it out was available as a free update in October.

Goku's latest adventure scored a 7/10 in our Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot review. "If you're looking for an enjoyable way to see the life and times of adult Goku through a new perspective, Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot will grant your wish," wrote critic Heidi Kemps.

Dragon Ball FighterZ has been a lot more regular with DLC updates since it launched, adding Master Roshi to its roster in September.
