It’s still pretty wild that some mad developers looked at the villains of the Dragon Ball series and said to themselves, “let’s use these guys in an asymmetrical survival multiplayer game.” It’s definitely not the first thing I’d have thought of, but darn if I’m not intrigued by the concept. If you are as well, you’ll be interested to know that Dragon Ball: The Breakers’ open beta has gotten a release date.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers Open Beta Gets Release Date
Bandai Namco has announced that the open beta of Dragon Ball: The Breakers will be available for play from September 21st to September 25th. During this time, you register to try the game out for free on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam. You don’t need to have pre-ordered the full game to play the beta, you can just add the beta version directly to your library, though obviously, this version will only be available for play during the beta period.
