As you can see, you’ve got a good amount of time to access the beta. However, Bandai Namco hasn’t broken down which characters or modes will be available. Considering it’s close to the game’s release, however, don’t be surprised if it’s pretty wide open.
The beta should be available for download close to its release, across the board on Xbox Live Marketplace and PlayStation Network. The details haven’t been given just yet, but we should know more in early January, so you should be able to access and pre-load it with plenty of time.
This is a strong opportunity to see what Arc System Works’ brawler is all about, with its wide assortment of characters and incredible 2D fighting tactics. We’re certainly looking forward to getting our hands on it.
The full release of Dragon Ball FighterZ arrives on January 26th, 2018 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. There’s rumors that Bandai Namco could be announcing a Nintendo Switch version very soon, but we’re still waiting on confirmation.
