Today, Bandai Namco and Arc System Works released a brand new trailer for Dragon Ball FighterZ that featured Beerus, the God of Destruction, absolutely tearing into the competition, which sent fans of the DBZ franchise into a frenzy in anticipation over the game’s forthcoming open beta. Now, in order to let players prepare for the trial period, the publisher and developer have made the beta client available for download on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
As seen in the tweet below from Bandai Namco’s UK Twitter account, Dragon Ball FighterZ fans who pre-ordered the title will be able to take part in the beta’s action on Saturday, January 13, 2018 (3:00 AM EST, 12:00 AM PST) after downloading the client. Those who have yet to reserve a copy of the game thankfully only have to wait a day until they can join the brawl, with the beta opening up on Sunday, January 14, 2018 for all players.
Get ready for the #DBFighterZBETA by downloading the client!

Those who want to go ahead and download the beta client for Dragon Ball FighterZ likely won’t be deterred by its file size, as the hard drive space required is only 2.4 GB on PlayStation 4 and 3.13 GB on Xbox One. Should one choose to forego following Bandai Namco’s FAQ instructions in the above tweet, both of the beta clients for PS4 and Xbox One can also be found in the PlayStation Store and Xbox Marketplace following a simple search for the game.
With Dragon Ball FighterZ‘s open beta just around the bend, there’s no doubt that fans are extremely excited for the trial. After all, the beta features 11 playable characters, which ought to provide more than enough variety for fans to determine if the fighting game will be worth a day one purchase, especially since the full version will be releasing shortly thereafter at the end of the month.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to launch on January 26, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
