Bandai Namco has finally announced that its popular fighting video game Dragon Ball Xenoverse will not only get an online world tournament, but it has also been thrown open to players.
This event is also known as Tenkaichi Budoka and the beta event began on 18 August and will be ending on 23 August, 2015. Bandai is using it as a test run, to check if the servers will be able to hold up. The company has said that there will not be any winners in this phase but players can practise their skills and prepare well ahead.
The main tournament will start on 25 August and will end on 30 August, 2015. More the number of fights they win better, better the chances of boosting up their ranking. From this round, only four of the top players will be selected for the next round that will be the final round in the competition.
The final round of this tournament will be taking place from 5 September to 12 September. The player who will win the tournament will be adjudged the champion of this new world tournament event. The final round will be duly recorded and showed on the company's official YouTube channel.
The winners of the event will be given out virtual prizes like Hercule badge and the 7 Dragon Balls. Apart from this, Bandai Namco will also be creating "unique themes and backgrounds using champions' avatars for Microsoft, Steam and PlayStation systems."
The event is open on all the platforms that Dragon Ball Xenoverse was released on - PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC Steam.
