Most Dragon Ball games give you the obvious fantasy of playing as a superpowered Saiyan warrior. But Dragon Ball: The Breakers is taking a much different approach, where a group of normal humans attempt to survive an encounter with one of the universe’s most powerful villains. It’s basically Dead by Daylight as an anime game, and a beta has been announced for PC.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers launches on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC (via Steam,) in 2022. “A closed beta test will be organized on PC, letting players get their hands on the game”, the devs say in a press release. There’s no mention of that beta being available on other platforms, so it looks like PC players are getting a special treat.
The Breakers is an asymmetrical multiplayer game where seven players, controlling non-superpowered survivors, have to complete objectives in order to escape a player taking control of supervillains like Cell, Buu, or Frieza. The survivors have to take advantage of various power-ups and vehicles in the environment as they attempt to build a Super Time Machine and escape the villain.
