Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 producer Jun Song has announced the game will receive a significant update tomorrow, adding the Cross Versus multiplayer mode.
This new mode was crafted from the yearning for more recent and veteran players to have opportunities to play together. It has two teams of three competing against each other, with each team needing to “earn mission points in different areas of a map to open a boss area. [The] team that defeats the boss faster than the other team, or collects the maximum number of mission points, wins.”
Further, all players will begin at level one, with the methods to grow stronger dependent on the player. A mechanism interfering with the other team’s moves will also be implemented, making it essential for everyone to be cognizant of the growing state of battle. Badges will be granted as rewards.
The update tomorrow will also add the Festival of Universes event, which will be regularly held. Its contents are summarized by Song below:
Players choose one universe of their choice, and become a part of a team featuring all players in that universe. Participating in the event earning earns Glory Points for that universe during the event period. Once the event ends, the universe with the most Glory Points wins. Glory Points can be earned by playing almost all modes available in Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2.
Lastly, the Awoken Skill Ultra Instinct will be part of this update, applicable for avatars of all races. Its features are quoted below:
Upon awakening, it consumes energy to evade an opponent’s attack automatically, and with additional input, a counterattack becomes possible. An exclusive technique power recovery skill becomes available, and the Ki Blast attack is transformed into a special one.
