Dragon Ball FighterZ’s open beta, which commenced this weekend, may be extended because server problems have kept some players out.
The beta got underway Saturday early in the morning for preorder customers of the game, and went fully open early Sunday morning. The original end time is supposed to be 2:59 a.m. ET on Tuesday, Jan. 16 (midnight PT on Monday).
However, this afternoon, Bandai Namco’s U.S. Twitter account acknowledge problems reaching servers and that it may extend the open beta.
