When and how to sign up for the Closed Network Test

Bandai Namco has planned a closed network test, which will take place on all platforms on August 6 and 7. Players have the option to sign up here to access it, although signing up does not guarantee selection. During the beta, it will be possible to control Cell and Freezer (villains), while on the side of the survivors we will manage Oolong, Bulma or an avatar.

The closed test will be held on the following dates:

  • Friday, August 5, 7 pm to 11 pm (PT)
  • Saturday, August 6, 5 am to 9 am (PT)
  • Saturday, August 6, 11 am to 3 pm (PT)
  • Sunday, August 7 from 7 pm to 11 pm (PT)

In Dragon Ball: The Breakers, the survivors will try at all costs to escape from the clutches of the enemy, a very powerful villain that in normal situations they will not be able to cope with.
