Bad news Z warriors, looks like the Closed Beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ has been delayed. It looks like this is due to the volume of excitement and enthusiasm surrounding the announcement of Closed Beta, they have decided to expand the capacity of the closed beta in an effort to enable more players to participate in the program.
Apparently, they are also working to bolster their background systems to ensure that the closed beta registration and selection process can accept the volume of anticipated sign-ups. However, these efforts will necessitate a slight delay for the closed beta sign-up date, which will move to 22nd August 2017 unfortunately.
Bandai Namco has supplied information about the timings of this Closed Beta thankfully. It will occur on the 16th and 17th September at the following hours:
EUROPE (UK) CST
1st Session* 10:00am – 13:00pm (Saturday)
2nd Session* 18:00pm – 21:00pm (Saturday)
3rd Session* 2:00am – 5:00am (Sunday)
4th Session* 21:00pm – 00:00am (Sunday/Monday)
*Timings are subject to change.
There are some upsides to this delay. For example, Bandai Namco has stated they’re working to bring an expanded roster to Dragon Ball FighterZ beyond the 9 fighters we previously had available to us, as well as a portion of the Lobby. As a reminder, the Closed Beta will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One platforms.
The team at Bandai Namco were quoted as saying: “We would like to thank all of our fans for their patience and understanding; we look forward to sharing more news about the Dragon Ball FighterZ Closed Beta program soon.”
Dragon Ball FighterZ will be available for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 system, and PCs in early 2018.
