First off is the addition of the insanely powered Majin Vegeta as a playable character. Now the first game had about 47 characters so here’s hoping this roster far exceeds that one. Now on to the multiplayer which will allow for up to six players to fight together against enemies. How Dragonball is that? I mean until you fight for like 2 weeks and Goku finally shows and wins in 5 days.
For players looking to share their Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 experience with friends, a new Expert Mission multiplayer mode will also be featured in the game that will enable six players to band together to take on giant NPC bosses. The ability to join-up with friends to take-on one boss character not only embodies the spirit of Dragon Ball Z, it also gives players the opportunity to form strategic team play that will deliver the most dynamic multiplayer experience in any Dragon Ball Z game to-date.
Players that love going on quests within the Dragon Ball Z universe will be pleased to learn that Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 features twice the amount of quests compared to the original Dragon Ball Xenoverse game and there will also be new parallel quests from the first game. Lastly, a new system controlling rare item drops that will give players the chance to hunt for their favorite costumes and accessories.
Saving the best news for last… An Open Beta for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is on the way and we’ll have more details about Beta soon. The Open Beta will give players the chance to explore Conton City, the new hub area for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 that is seven times larger than the previous hub city. Conton City will be the main area for players to find quests, receive training, and shop for items.
Also one of the parts I loved was the quests and thought they could have been better. I wanted to like them more though. Well we’re getting twice the amount of quests with this release. With some of the content paralleling the previous game.
While details on the upcoming beta still haven’t shown up, we’ll be sure to let you know so you can check it out for yourselves. Dragonball Xenoverse 2 releases October 25, 2016.
