Bandai Namco has kicked off a special limited-time event in Dragon Ball FighterZ. The game’s first Party Battle is now underway on PS4, Xbox One, and PC, giving players the opportunity to team up against powerful enemies and earn some in-game cash.
Party Battle is one of the two new modes that were introduced in Dragon Ball FighterZ’s latest patch. These special online events are only available for a limited-time and allow three players to team together and fight a “fearsome boss.”
The first Party Battle is called “The Emperor Strikes Back,” and it pits players against one of the series’ most iconic foes, Frieza. Each win counts toward a shared total, so players around the globe will be cooperating to topple Frieza as many times as possible.
As game producer Tomoko Hiroki explained, “The number of enemies defeated during this event is linked across the world, so the number of players participating and the cooperation between those players will become an important point for this event.”
The Party Battle is going on now on all platforms and runs until 11 PM PT on May 21 (2 AM ET on May 22). Those who participate in it will receive Zeni and Premium Z Coins.
In addition to Party Battles, Bandai Namco recently introduced a new type of competition to Dragon Ball FighterZ called the FighterZ Cup. These contests will be held monthly and have players battling to earn points for their respective Z-Union.
