Second Dragon Ball FighterZ Beta Announced, Here’s Exactly When It’s Going Down
Fans hooking forward to clobbering opponents in this weekend’s Dragon Ball FighterZ beta have been met with a mixed experience to say the least. Those who have been able to login have been often been met with a number of network errors ranging from brief hiccups to long waits in matchmaking. Bandai Namco was quick to respond to the issues, presenting a second open beta to be unveiled at a later time. That date has now arrived.
Bandai Namco US took to Twitter to announce when the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ beta will begin, and it won’t be a very long wait. Tomorrow (January 17) will see the continuation of the ki-blasting fun, but this time (hopefully) devoid of the problems that plagued the first online test. Beginning at 9PM PST, servers will be let open once more for one last 24 hour period before the full game releases. Set your calendars and clocks accordingly.
Greetings DRAGON BALL FighterZ,
As promised, we are back with info on an additional open beta test with improvements to the experience. Open Beta Starts Jan 17, 2018 at 9:00pm PST and ends Jan 18, 2018 at 9:00pm PST (24hrs)
We look forward to seeing you online once again! pic.twitter.com/kR5h0M759c

Though it wasn’t expressly stated, each of the platforms that participated in the first open beta are expected to return for the second, meaning downloads for PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One should still work for the time being. There hasn’t specific been word about the improvements made to the experience, but there’s likely to be a smooter bout of brawling ahead by all.
As for any additional characters or fighting stages, it’s probably not going to happen, especially with how soon this next round is beginning. Still, it’s not as though we wouldn’t be happy if a few leftover characters were to appear in the new beta roster. Dragon Ball FighterZ will fully launch for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on January 26.
