If you missed out on the previous Dragon Ball FighterZ beta, you'll soon have another chance to try the highly anticipated fighting game ahead of its launch. Bandai Namco is holding a second beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ next month on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and now the publisher has revealed exactly when players will be able to jump in.
The next Dragon Ball FighterZ beta kicks off on January 14, and unlike the closed beta that ran back in September, it will be open to all PS4 and Xbox One players--though you'll presumably still need a PS Plus or Xbox Live Gold subscription to participate. The beta begins at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET / 9 AM CET and runs until the same times on January 16.
Those who pre-order certain versions of the game will have a chance to jump into the beta a little early. Reserving Dragon Ball FighterZ digitally in the PlayStation and Xbox Stores will give you access to the beta at 12 AM PT / 3 AM ET / 9 AM CET on January 13, a full 24 hours ahead of when it officially begins. You can also try the beta early if you pre-order the physical Dragon Ball FighterZ Collector's Edition.
Bandai Namco hasn't detailed which characters and game modes will be playable in next month's open beta, but so far, the publisher has announced 24 fighters from the FighterZ roster. Most recently, Bandai Namco revealed a trio of characters from the currently airing Dragon Ball Super series: Beerus, Hit, and Goku Black. We got to see all three of the newly announced characters in action. Other recently confirmed additions to the roster include Kid Buu, Gotenks, and adult Gohan.
Dragon Ball FighterZ releases for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26. The game will have a season pass that will add an additional six characters to the roster post-launch. Those who pre-order any version of Dragon Ball FighterZ will unlock two characters early: Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta.
