Hell yeah! Subscribed. Thanks for the info dump. Xenoverse 1 ended up becoming my second-favorite Dragon Ball game, second only to Tenkaichi 3. Buddy of mine got me a copy for my birthday so just playing the waiting game until it unlocks on Steam!

Forgot all about this releasing soon. I just hope it's better than the first game. Didn't think it was that great.

Time for Demon God Dumplin 2: Electric Bugaloo!



It's awesome more of the TFS crew got in. ^^

Just a correction; I believe DB Super Trunks is unlockable in the base game, but Deluxe Edition buyers unlock him right off the bat, hence "early access"

Confused. When's the release for this again? Says 27th for me on Steam but guess that's the UK one. I could always VPN my way through that, but what region does it release in tomorrow?

So I loved the fan service and CaC aspects of Xenoverse, but thought the gameplay was horrendous.

Is this improved in that regard? I'd so I'll grab this Day One.

Steam release is on the 27th for all regions where it's available.

Can we actually buy the pre-order DLC later on or are they going to permanently be restricted to pre-orders like SSJ4 Vegeta was?

Xenoverse 1 was a fine port (60fps, a few graphics options), iirc that port was handled by QLOC, which is well known for decent to good ports. I assume Xenoverse 2 will be the same? (we won't know for sure until release though, I guess)

EDIT: Steam store page mentions QLOC as the developer for Xenoverse 2, so yeah, I expect it to be a fine port like the first.

The first one didn't have a ton of options on PC but enough to satisfy me. You could turn off the mega bloom, change the DoF and all that. Not to mention it ran at a smooth 60fps on my super old PC (2.6GHz i5-750, 4gig ram, AMD 5850) Kind of hilarious how they didn't manage to get the PS4 version of the first game locked at 60 considering my PC could handle it without a problem.

The new game is on the same engine from what I could tell so I assume the PC port will be pretty fantastic (optimized well at the very least)

I honestly want to wait until this game goes on sale before buying it but I'm not going to risk my ability to play certain characters.

Also, what exactly transfers over with your Xenoverse 1 save? I'm gonna be buying X2 on PC this time around and my character from X1 isn't very developed compared to my console characters.

Goku Black is confirmed to be getting a DLC release later on.

When transferring stuff from 1, you send over one character of your choice (for their appearance in the story), the clothing they're wearing, the moves they have equipped, and a portion of your money (some of it is also turned into Time Patrol Medals, another type of currency. Some moves can't be transferred (all transformations, plus Whis and Bardock's moves), so those are converted into medals as well.

there are tweaks here and there, but it's basically the same. They removed super armor for enemies and added in what's called the burst dash, which shoots you directly at a locked-on enemy, allowing you to hit people that won't stop fleeing.

Since it has all the XV1 DLC, then yes. Several characters and some side missions featuring them.

There's characters at least.
In the first one there was a pretty short DLC story part from GT and a few quests too.

If you didn't buy the deluxe whatever. Early access implies you can unlock him in the game ? Maybe with the dragon balls or something.

Ultimate finishes happen if you meet the requirements period. So that's a big improvement.

Also drops are far more generous.

Also, you will never go empty-handed from an Ultimate Finish. I think there's a minimum of two drops now. It's still random which two, though.

Is there any advantage in buying the deluxe edition on pre-order like pre-order only bonuses or I can preorder the normal edition now for Black and buy the season pass later?

I'm fairly certain Future Trunks is available in the game already, the season pass just unlocks him from the start. At least that's what the Steam page suggests (they call him "early access")

all transformations from XV1 return but are retweaked. Kaioken works like SSJ where the more ki you have, the higher level you transform into. Unlocked Potential is also back.

SSJ is covered in this video

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4r8IW_XF0k

tldr; your ki and stamina regeneration is nerfed considerably for each level. You can no longer spam ki blasts either. Presumably Kaioken works in a similar fashion.

Pure Buu and Namekian Giant both drain stamina, and in the latter's case, any damage you take is translated into stamina loss, so you're basically invincible until the transformation wears off, at which point your guard breaks and you have to wait for your stamina to come back.

I'm not sure what the downside is to Golden form, but presumably it's also stamina based.

He is unlockable in the game, yes. We don't know the method, yet. But it's fairly plausible/likely he is a Dragon Ball wish along with Hit.
