Bandai Namco has announced and released a new “Lite” edition of Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, allowing players to dip into the game for free with limited story availability yet compatibility with full (paid) editions of the game and support for downloadable content packs, along with the ability to transfer save data from the “Lite” edition to the full version of the game.
DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 – Lite Version will be a condensed version of the full DRAGON BALL XENOVERSE 2 game, featuring a selected number of story missions and online modes for players to compete in.
The game will be downloadable on PlayStation4 and Xbox One featuring:
- Five story episodes, ‘Raditz’s Attack’, ‘The Saiyan Threat’, ‘Ruckus on Planet Namek’, ‘The Ginyu Force Strikes’ and ‘The Galactic Emperor’, from the main game.
- Parallel Quests – Quests will unlock accordingly to the story episodes progression.

Players who will purchase the full version of the game will be able to transfer their saves from the Lite version.
