An iconic character and a special multiplayer mode are being added to “Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2,” according to Bandai Namco Entertainment Asia.
As one of the “Dragon Ball” franchise’s most popular antiheroes, Vegeta is known for his arrogance, temper, strength, and a widow’s peak so high it gives balding men hope that they can still look badass as long as they put enough product in their hair. Well, good news to Vegeta fans; the new character is none other than the Saiyan prince’s darkest side, Majin Vegeta.
Majin Vegeta came into being when the heinous wizard Babidi exploited the evil remaining in Vegeta, transforming him into a more powerful version of himself. Under Babidi’s influence, Majin Vegeta fought his former allies, including Goku and Gohan.
Majin Vegeta will be added to the roster of playable characters, which already boasts favorites such as Goku, Piccolo, Android 18, Future Trunks, and Vegeta himself.
The new mode is the Expert Mission multiplayer mode. This groups six players into a team, then tasks them with working together to defeat a single, super-powerful boss. The boss has the ability to send teammates to different dimensions, separating them from the rest of the party. The only way to escape this dimension and rejoin your team is through sub challenges that will test your fighting prowess.
“Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2” is a fighting game, RPG, and MMO hybrid. The game allows 300 players to be online simultaneously per server, where they can participate in a host of activities such as fighting, questing, training, shopping, and more. They’ll be doing all this in the massive main hub, Conton City, which is 7 times larger than the previous game’s Toki Toki City.
The game also boasts twice the number of quests than its predecessor. Additionally, unique missions will be accessible to each playable race.
In addition to new modes, “Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2” will also feature a bunch of returning, improved online modes. Players will be able to create their own unique avatars, whom they can customize to a great degree thanks to an enhanced character creation system. Players can then use said avatars in ranked and unranked matches. Avatars will have the ability to reach the level of Super Saiyan 3, and even perform the Final Kamehameha.
In the game, players assume the role of Time Patrollers, who must protect the Dragon Ball universe from evil intruders bent on altering history. Players will travel through time to take part in some of the series’ most important events. In the process, they’ll encounter powerful characters both old and new, many of which they’ll have to fight.
The game will receive updates and post-launch support for up to a year after purchase.
“Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2” will be released worldwide this October 28, 2016 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC Digital. Visit the official site for more information. — BM, GMA News
