Gameplay

The game is very similar to it’s predecessor in terms of gameplay, it is mostly set in a series of 3D battle arenas mostly modeled after notable locations in the Dragon Ball universe, with the the central hub being an expanded version of Toki-Toki City, called Conton City. Players are able to freely traverse this new hub world, and in some areas are even capable of flying around, however this feature will not be available from start, instead being unlocked. Players will also be able to travel to other hubs such as the Namekian Village and Frieza’s ship. Some skills will have to be learned through masters, like the previous game. However, some masters will be found exclusively in these extra hubs. Xenoverse 2 will be the fourth Dragon Ball video game to feature character customisation. Players will be able to chose from the five races of the first game: Humans, Saiyans, Majins, Namekians and Frieza’s race. The game will also feature race-specific quests, minigames and transformations (the latter of which was only available to Saiyans in the first game, via the Super Saiyan forms). Players will also have a much greater role in the story, as some decisions will have to be made by them. Multiplayer servers will now able to hold up to 300 players at once. The game will also have a training mode called Training School, and when customising a character, there will be the option to choose different kinds of ki blasts (Power, Burst, Freeze and Bomb).

Plot

The game would have a new protagonist. Xenoverse 2 takes place two years after the events of the first game, with the protagonist joining the now expanded Time Patrol, as the course of history begins changing again.

Development

The game was originally teased by Bandai Namco Entertainment on May 16, 2016, as a new “Dragon Ball project”, with it being announced on May 17, 2016. A Bandai Namco spokesperson confirmed that the game would be released on the PlayStation 4 in Japan, and for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows in North America and Europe. Bandai Namco likely planned for Xenoverse 2 (without the knowledge of the development team) as the domain was registered December 9, 2014, before the release of the first game. However, the game’s producer claims the development team had not planned for Xenoverse 2 to happen as they finished the game, which was released on February 5, 2015. Bandai Namco announced at E3 2016 that the game would run at a frame rate of 60 frames per second on all three platforms, would have a hub city that is seven times larger than its predecessor, and would also feature a new transportation system. Unreal Engine 4 has been used to develop the game.

The Collector’s Edition of the game will include the game disc, a soundtrack CD, a collector’s box, an exclusive steelbook case, a Time Patroller’s Guide art book, and a statue of Super Saiyan Goku. It will cost $150 and will be available for Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
