As some of you know, this weekend will see the first round of closed beta testing for Dragon Ball FighterZ.  Select players have been given the chance to try out the game and play it online by Bandai Namco and Arc System Works.

For those who are in the beta — or are looking forward to people streaming it — the beta isn’t exactly available for the entire weekend. Rather, Bandai Namco has set specific times during which the beta will be live and people can log in. You can check the beta schedule out below:

USA (California) PST EUROPE (France) CST JAPAN JST
1st Session 2:00am-5:00am (Saturday) 11:00-14:00 (Saturday) 18:00-21:00 (Saturday)
2nd Session 10:00am-1:00pm (Saturday) 19:00-22:00 (Saturday) 2:00-5:00  (Sunday)
3rd Session 6:00pm-9:00pm (Saturday) 3:00-6:00 (Sunday) 10:00-13:00 (Sunday)
4th Session 1:00pm-4:00pm (Sunday) 22:00-1:00 (Sunday/Monday) 5:00-8:00  (Monday)

Now, whether or not further beta tests will be opened is as of yet unknown. However, some players who applied have reported receiving emails from Bandai Namco stating that, while they didn’t make it in to this testing cycle, they have qualified as “potential candidates” for future beta tests should they occur.
