Xbox One fans of the massively popular Dragon Ball franchise are in for a treat this weekend. Bandai Namco’s role-playing fighting game, Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, is going completely free for Xbox Live Gold owners today.
It seems Battlefield 1 is getting some competition in the free to play front, as – we previously covered – the World War 1 shooter is also going free at the same time on the Xbox One for all Xbox Live Gold subscription owners.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2
Xenoverse 2 follows in the footsteps of the original game, but on a much larger scale than before. Featuring the new hub – Conton City – that is seven times larger than the Toki-Toki city of the original Xenoverse.
Players get to make their own Time Patroller and once again restore the original timeline of the Dragon Ball series. This involves fighting alongside many iconic characters of the Dragon Ball saga to defeat enemies from different timelines.
Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2’s free period starts on Friday, March 3rd at 9 AM PST. While the event is active, the entire game is playable from start to finish for anyone looking to do so. Be quick about it, however, as the event ends on Sunday, March 5th at 11:59 PM PST.
All progress and achievements from the weekend will also carry over to the full game for players purchasing the game. Microsoft is further sweetening that deal with a Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 sale that will run alongside the event.
The sale essentially gives a 40% discount on the Standard Edition of Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2, bringing it down to $35.99, as well as a 25% discount on the Deluxe Edition to make it $67.49.
But wait, there’s more: the Deluxe Edition also includes the game’s season pass, giving players a range of more Dragon Ball content such as new characters, costumes, and skills to play around with.
Microsoft is pulling out all the punches this weekend, giving away two full games to their Xbox Live Gold Members. The games are available now to download on the Xbox One’s Gold Member area or through their respective store pages.
