Overlook the Dragon Ball fantasies of being Goku and blasting Cell out of the sky. Bandai Namco simply introduced Dragon Ball: The Breakers, an upcoming asymmetrical on-line multiplayer recreation the place you’ll be able to both be Cell, or be one among seven folks making an attempt to run the heck away from his explicit model of chaos.
You possibly can take a look at an announcement trailer beneath:
Dragon Ball: The Breakers places you within the outsized boots of both a Raider — Cell, Buu, or Frieza — or one among seven “survivors” who should cooperate to try to escape the temporal anomaly they’re caught in earlier than the raider blasts them into oblivion.
Other than simply operating round and hiding, survivors can work on customizable talent timber, use gadgets like weapons and grappling hooks, and hop in automobiles to ultimately escape by way of a Tremendous Time machine. The trailer reveals off a variety of examples of gameplay, together with rocket launchers and different gun-like weapons, and Oolong shapeshifting right into a potted plant to cover from Cell.
The Breakers is part of the Dragon Ball Xenoverse universe, and can embody some form of tie-in to avoid wasting information from Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for individuals who have it.
It is at the moment deliberate for launch on PS4, Xbox One, Change, and PC in 2022, and can after all even be playable on PS5 and Xbox Sequence X/S. A closed beta take a look at is deliberate for PC, with extra particulars coming at a later date.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers does not look fairly like something we have seen earlier than from the Dragon Ball universe, as a co-op survival recreation reasonably than the quite a few combating video games. However we preferred Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2’s authenticity and depth after we reviewed it again in 2016, so hopefully The Breakers is ready to faucet into one of the best of these parts as effectively.
