Even with the new Dragon Ball FighterZ doing well after a very recent release, Bandai Namco still decided to offer a massive update for its older 3D-fighter, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. Not only does the update offer up a plethora of joy, it is also free of charge for those with the base game. Alongside this free update, the DLC Extra Pack #2 adding extra characters is available for purchase.

In the free update, Limit Burst and other Battle Techniques, such as Flash Revive (trade your own HP to bring others back to the fight) have been added to the game. New SSGSS transformations and a new Awoken Skill are now part of the gameplay as well. Not only that, but a 2v2 online mode and other online events were teased with the update and should be “coming soon.”

Partner Customization has been added with the ability to add partnerships with your masters after raising their friendship levels. This also unlocks combined combos and techniques with these masters. Players can also change the looks and appearances of these new partners they choose to pair with.

There is much content with this free update, but even more can be acquired with the purchase of Extra Pack #2 for $16.99. Android 17, Jiren, Fu, and Ultra Instinct Goku are included as playable characters in this DLC package.

The update for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is available now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PS4, and Xbox One. Check out the new trailer, below:
