It won’t be long now before Dragon Ball FighterZ fans will finally be able to get their hands on a copy of the forthcoming fighting game, as Arc System Works and Bandai Namco recently decided to prepare players for the title’s release by putting out its official launch trailer. Now, though, it looks as if Xbox One fans will be able to experience some of the title’s offerings one last time before it goes live thanks to Bandai Namco providing a 24-hour open beta period exclusively for the Microsoft console.
As indicated by the tweet below from Bandai Namco’s official UK Twitter account, Xbox One owners looking to give Dragon Ball FighterZ a go with the exclusive open beta will be able to do so tonight starting at 9:00 PM PT. Of course, with the trial only being available for 24 hours, that means fans should expect to lose access to the beta tomorrow, January 24, 2018, at the same time as it began.
XBOX ONE FANS! An extra slot for Dragon Ball FighterZ Open Beta will be made for Xbox One users starting on 24th January at 5:00 (UK Time) for 24 hours.
Improvements to enjoy its online multiplayer glory has been made so please join us again to see for yourself! #DBFighterZBETA pic.twitter.com/xO0XqMCu8J

During the course of Dragon Ball FighterZ‘s previous open betas, many Xbox One fans reported issues of experiencing several server problems that stopped them from being able to join more than a couple matches. In order to rectify the issue, Bandai Namco offered a beta extension for a full day to players on all platforms so that those dissatisfied with their experiences in previous trials would have a better chance at stronger connections and playing more matches.
Taking all of this into consideration, Bandai Namco is being quite generous by giving Xbox One fans preferential treatment with what is presumably the final open beta for Dragon Ball FighterZ. While PC and PlayStation 4 fans might feel left out of the fun, perhaps the Xbox One version of the title experienced the most issues during the prior betas, and this is the publisher’s way of making it up to the console’s fans. After all, the full game is set to release later this week, so it isn’t as if PC and PS4 fans will never get the chance to play it again.
Dragon Ball FighterZ is set to launch on January 26, 2018 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
