Bandai Namco Entertainment has announced an open and closed beta for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2! The closed beta, which only some lucky players will be able to participate in, will take place October 8, 2016 from 5 PM to October 10, 2016 5 PM Japanese Standard Time. Players, worldwide, will be able to get into the closed beta by pre-ordering Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 digitally on the PlayStation Store. There will be other ways to get into the closed beta as well. In Japan, there will be a special code in an up-coming issue of Shuiseha’s V-Jump magazine that can be entered in the PlayStation Store.
As for the open beta, which will be available to everyone, it will take place from October 14, 2016 at 5 PM to October 16, 2019 at 5 PM Japanese Standard Time. All players will simply be able to go to the PlayStation Store and download it. During the open beta, the first Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 World Martial Arts Tournament will take place. Details will be announced later, but it will pit the top players against one another for the right to be called the best fighter! Those who participate in the open beta will also be able to earn a free bonus item once the full version of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 launches.
The open and closed betas will allow players to experience the online component of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Thus far, the betas have only been announced for the PlayStation 4. No word on if Xbox One or Steam players will be able to join in on the action. The beta, both open and closed, will be available for people worldwide (North America, Europe, Japan, etc). Anime Games Online hopes to have additional information as soon as it’s announced.
