Dragon Ball FighterZ free open beta on PS4 and XB1 Sunday 14th Jan - Tuesday 16th Jan

37
Found 11th JanEdited by:"lomax"
Join the hype train for the biggest fighter of 2018 :). The beta for people who preordered starts Saturday but it's free for everyone from Sunday morning.

PSN preload link from @CoolDude0123

Start time: 8am Sunday 14th January
End Time: 8am Tuesday 16th January

Preload should be available ahead of time.

Like most beta's this is mostly to test PvP infrastructure ahead of launch but there'll be some of the tutorial mode available and Arc System Works have the best in the business.

Thanks, will give it a try. Though weird days for the open beta, why not Fri - Sun? I will only get to play on Sunday
Haven't been this hype for a game in awhile, and I suck at fighters!

If you pre-ordered the game on PSN the beta starts Saturday morning so part of the late start is to create a preorder incentive. No idea why they wouldn't start it on Friday like everyone else though :).
Cheers mate. Been needing to know this day for a while!

Some people work weekends and can only game during the week. This is the best beta days I have seen in recent memory.
I just want kid Goku and Korin
When do the pre order codes go live?

To maximise the time for the US. It starts at midnight 13th Eastern time
15th Jan is a bank holiday (Martin Luther King Jr day) in the US, probably explains why Monday & not Friday

The code you get from the retailer needs to be redeemed here
dragonball-fighterz.com/en

And the downloads to the early access will be sent out today

Same, haven't been this hype for a game since I was a kid :).
This video does a bit better job of detailing what you need to know than the other one that couldn't pronounce Akira Toriyama right lol.
If you have a pre-order code( not avaliable yet), you can play this a day early.

Of all the games releasing for the next few months, THIS is the game I am most looking forward to. Can’t wait to main Goku Black, Goku SSGSS and Future Trunks, although I suspect Arc System Works might throw a curveball and make Yamcha the most OP in the game

Damnit Bandai Namco. Gonna have to get this later MH World takes priority

On Xbox Dragonball fanbase is huge dont think the same is with Monster Hunter. It's also the first MH game ever on a Xbox platforn. So if you want to support one Japanese game on Xbox has to be the underdog the one with less sales which is Monster Hunter Of course you can get DBZFighterZ later on no worries and this will sell alot no doubt

Smyths doing Monster Hunter for £36.99 and Dragon Ball for £38.99 if you pre-order then click and collect in-store. Leaning towards MH and true what you say but I will try this beta on Sunday as I am not the biggest Anime fan so interested in how I get on with it.
Xbox download for the open beta is 3.1GB
Gonna be awesome!!

I'm gonna be doing the long long wait for Monster Hunter World on PC, I hope the port is worth the wait! I'm surprised xbox is getting Dragon Ball at all given it's been skipped by a few fighters this gen.

I would have thought Monster Hunter World would outsell Dragon Ball just because fighters are so niche these days. Lots of people have been looking forward to Monster Hunter for ages :).
Does anybody know if you can do 2 player fights or is it strictly online only?

How much storage will it take up?
Servers aint all that took ages to pair up a match

On other platforms perhaps but i can definetely see DB FighterZ outselling MH World on Xbox One

Think what also helps that is Microsoft got marketing partnership with DB FighterZ and Sony the same with MH World

On top of that MH World is the first MH game ever to be on a Xbox console so it would be a first for many newcomers while DBZ got a huge fanbase everywhere since forever

I downloaded mine on Friday without any issues. Do you have the available storage?
Can't log in to play! I keep getting failed network errors. I managed to get passed the main menu only to have to scroll down through two looooong agreements. Picked my 'fighter name' and then got another failed network message which sent me to the main menu again!!! Aaaarrrgghhh!

Same here.

I have pre-ordered on Amazon and never received the beta code.
Was looking forward to trying this out but installing it was as far as I could go.
I think I will just cancel my pre-order and get a used copy, hopefully by then they will fix their servers.

The beta code would have been to play it a day early on the Saturday. Everyone should be able to login today as it is an open beta.

True enough Dragon Ball is huge everywhere. That and I don't understand the Xbox One market at all :), 4+ years into the cycle and it's the only Xbox I haven't bothered to pick up.

I connected after 2 or 3 network failed msgs. I've only been able to play the tutorial though I've been in the World Match queue for ages...

Shocking that they have issues with their servers in the beta test of their servers, absolutely shocking! It's an outrage I say!

Managed to work in the end. Played the tutorials and that's it since I wasn't able to join any ranked or casual matches.

Same for me. Think I'm going to do what another user said previously and wait to see if there are any issues with the servers once the game is out. I'll make a decision whether to buy it depending on the feedback I find post release.
