As the Oct. 25 release date for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 approaches, publisher Bandai Namco is sharing some key news about the game.
Top of the list is the addition of Majin Vegeta to the game's roster. Majin Vegeta is arguably the most fearsome form that Vegeta takes after Babidi harnesses and manipulates the evil in Vegeta’s heart in order to control him. Majin Vegeta has incredible strength and stamina and also displays more muscle mass and definition compared to his normal self.
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," says PR representative Debbie Yoon on behalf of Bandai Namco.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 also reportedly features twice the amount of quests compared to the original Dragon Ball Xenoverse game. There will also be new parallel quests from the first game. Bandai Namco also unveiled a new system controlling rare item drops designed to give players the chance to hunt for their favorite costumes and accessories.
Finally, Bandai Namco announced that an open beta for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is in the works. The open beta will give players the chance to explore Conton City, the new hub area for 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. Bandai Namco did not state when the open beta will begin, however.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is in development for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam).
