Fans who prefer digital copy of games over retail are in for some good news, as Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 can now be pre-ordered and pre-downloaded on the PlayStation Network, Steam and Xbox Live. Like most games that can be digitally pre-ordered, there are two editions of the game: standard and deluxe. The standard edition is just the game, while the deluxe edition comes with the US$29.99 season pass.
The pre-download option is great for those who want to play the game when it’s released right away, since it allows players to download the necessary data. The game itself won’t be playable until the release date, so fans will have to wait for October 25 on consoles and October 28 on PC if they want to start playing it.
Anyone who wants to play as Goku Black in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 will have to pre-order the game, since it’s doubtful that he will be released as regular DLC. Bandai Namco did this twice already — with Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta who was the special pre-order bonus character in the first Xenoverse game, and Boruto and Sarada who were pre-order exclusives in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4.
Major Nelson confirmed the news for Xbox One fans, while PC fans can check out the Steam listing here. Those with a PlayStation 4 can also see the pre-order option in the store’s coming soon page so they can get it there.
There are also two special editions of the game for those who want it as a physical release. There is the deluxe edition, which comes with the season pass and Future Trunks from Dragon Ball Super. There?s also the Collector’s Edition, which comes with a statue of Super Saiyan Goku, a steelcase for the game and a Time Patroller guide book, so obviously it’s just for diehard fans of the franchise.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 is coming to the PS4 and Xbox One on October 25, while the PC version of the fighter/RPG hybrid comes out on the 28th. The game features a ton of improvements, including the ability to fly around Toki Toki City and some new characters.
