Bandai Namco have released the first look at pre-order character Goku Black for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, at the advent of its special Twitch event that showcased new features and gameplay among top players.

Goku Black is a brand new character from the ongoing Dragon Ball Super series. He is vicious, dangerous, and undeniably evil. The character will be granted to those who purchase either the Day One edition of the game or the Collector’s Edition. Black’s recent Super Saiyan Rosé transformation has yet to be confirmed for the title.

The new trailer exhibits some of Black’s killer combos against the Super Saiyan Blue version of the proud prince Vegeta.

About half an hour after releasing the trailer, Bandai Namco announced that Frost and Kyabe from Dragon Ball Super will be joining the roster through the game’s first DLC pack.

These characters are from the sixth universe in the Dragon Ball series while the main cast resides in the seventh. In Dragon Ball Super, the top fighters from both universes face off in a grand tournament to decide the fate of the cosmos!

PlayStation 4 users will be able to participate in an open beta for the game starting today (October 14) and ending October 17. Players will receive a special item for helping developers polish the game before its final release.

Those unable to test out the game won’t have to wait long! Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 releases in North America on PS4 and Xbox One on October 25. European players will be able to purchase the game on October 28. Xenoverse 2 will release on Steam on October 28 to an international audience. The title will finally release in Japan on November 2.
