As previously reported, the 7 versus 1 game features normal people being pulled pursued by the “Raider” as he gathers power. The latter can take on forms of iconic Dragon Ball villains who have devastated cities and entire planets before; such as Cell, Frieza, and Buu.
The survivors aren’t trained fighters or super-powered beings like other characters in Dragon Ball. They must rely on power-ups, weapons, and vehicles to hold off and evade the Raider until they find the Super Time Machine to escape. The Raider has their own unique skills based on their form, and can even destroy large parts of the map to give less places for Survivors to hide or flee to.
The new gameplay trailer (found below) goes into more depth in an overview of the game. Players will need to find keys hidden across the map to speed-up the the Super Time Machine’s start up.
If the start-up is destroyed, players can try to find beacons to find Emergency Time machines. However players can equip up to three Transpheres, gather Change Power, and temporarily be able to fight the Raider using the ability of a hero from Dragon Ball Z.
Survivors can even gather the Dragon Balls to grant themselves more Change Power, or all allies as well. So can the Raider; who can use it to heal damage, or evolve.
The new trailer also detailed the Closed Beta test information. Players can sign up the closed beta now (in the US and Europe), and will be divided into four sessions across December 4th on Steam (which may cross over into December 5th for some timezones). Registration deadline is November 30th, 2:59 p.m. UTC.
