The Dragon Ball FighterZ open beta will run from January 14 at 12:00 a.m. PT / 3:00 a.m. ET / 9:00 a.m CST to January 16 at the same time. Users who pre-order the game will gain early access to the open beta on January 13, also at the same time.

( Editors Opinion: I’m very much looking forward to this open beta as we here at the WUPS crew were in the previous closed beta. Although it was a closed beta and it was very enjoyable while playing the game. However the downside of the previous beta was the process of catching the available times of the lobbies to be open for players. It was very tedious and a bit of a hassle, however this open beta seems to be a bit more lenient as we have yet to hear any information of this being limited due to play time. Which is a great thing because this game launches in a few weeks and they need to overload the servers to see how they will be able to handle such a large player count especially on the PS4 end. With that being said I am eagerly waiting for this weekend to approach so that I may once again get a chance to play the greatness that is Dragon Ball FighterZ! )

Will you be picking up this title? Dragon Ball FighterZ will launch for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 26th North America and Europe, and February 1st in Japan. For news like this and more make sure to keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.

Check out the Free PlayStation Plus Games arriving in January 2018

What’s Up PlayStation Nation,

With PSX and The Game Awards and the holidays soon ending. We have a lot to look forward to as far as of games we will soon be able to get our hands on in 2018! With that being said. It seems that PlayStation is looking to have something for everyone this January  with the PlayStation Plus Free games of the month. So without further ado here’s what we’re able to get our hands on this December in the trailer below:

 

 

The Line Up details are as followed:

  • Sacred 3, PS3
  • The Book of Unwritten Tales 2, PS3
  • Psycho-Pass: Mandatory Happiness, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)
  • Uncanny Valley, PS Vita (Cross Buy with PS4)

It should also be noted that New PSVR users have the chance to pick up Star Blood Arena as a free bonus game starting January 2 through March 6. Even if you don’t have a PSVR headset currently, it’s to be remember that you can simply add this title to your library for later usage!

(Editors Opinion: I’m pretty impressed with the Dues Ex selection being offered as I was not a day one purchaser of this game and a bit skeptic of the title. Now I will give this a shot and make up my decision on if I like the game or not. As far as Batman Telltale this is a great addition for those who are a fan of the dark knight as it provides a great twist in what many would expect from our hero and how he handles his decisions. This is definitely a fun and easy platinum for those who may check it out. As far as the other games we will see what they are like as well, as I will be doing my own trophy hunter research to see if these games are a nice shot at a shiny new platinum trophy.)

But enough of my thoughts what do you think of this month’s PS Plus free game selection? Do you think last months offering a better or worse. Comment below and let us know. For news like this and more keep us bookmarked and check back with us here at What’s Up PlayStation.
