Yeah, is this some kind of a record? Admittedly I'm not the biggest gamer but I can't think of any other games that are/were still getting major additional content (e.g. playable characters/stages) two full years after the first piece of DLC was released. When the game came out I think everyone just assumed we'd probably be on Xenoverse 4 by 2019.

They should do more Infinite History chapters if they want to support the game until XV3 in 2020. There is a lot of cool stuff that they can add for it.

For Dragonball Games, definitely. Even with the advent of DLC, the Raging Blast games got different presets, the first Xenoverse got GT and RoF Characters, while Xenoverse 2 has been steadily getting new content with different modes, different characters, updates, and the regular. For gaming, it's really not that unique. Games like GTA 5 and FFXV have been getting steady updates since their releases. But most games that have yearly release models usually get all their expanded content out of the way within a year of release

Xenoverse 2 becoming 'free to play' in a way - more like a glorified demo, but still, it's cool!

Photo mode is already available and it is fun! :D Finally a way to take so many great shots of my favorite stuff.

I like this Photo Mode, but at the same time there's so many ways this could be better. Like, I enjoy that we can turn off effects, but can we get an option to only turn off specific effects? Hope the modders do some cool shit with it.

On to the fanfiction images...
This one, in particular, was a bitch to make because you can't stop the enemy from locking onto you.
Also, one feature I've constantly been suggesting is the ability to switch between party members in battle. This mode's ability to switch characters at a whim is one step closer to that!

I haven't gotten on the game yet myself to mess around in Photo Mode or anything, but I'm curious about the New Conton City. Does it look or function any differently at all, or is it literally the same city we had just on a new server?

It's the same. "New Conton City" is just branding for the new server.

That being said, I haven't touched this game in a long time, so I have no idea when the radio thing launched.

Ahh, okay, so in-so-far as new gameplay stuff goes, it's just Photo Mode if I wanted to mess with it (I'll likely just wait until our next new substantial update is). Much obliged! Now I can keep...keep playing Jump Force instead...

...well, it started out sounding like a victory.

As far as the radio thing goes, that was added...uh...I'm not sure exactly when, but it's been there for a while now and even added a couple new audio things at one point too if I recall. At any rate, it wasn't part of the most recent update.

I really hope the next DLC gets a new story to play out. I don't much appreciate that the last one broke the pattern of even numbered DLCs getting stories, and I've barely even touched the game since Extra Pack 2.

I havent been able to jump in, thank god you can turn the names off for photo mode. It's like I've saying the whole time a toggle for that would be amazing, it makes the game so much more immersive. I'm guessing the names come back on as soon as you leave photo mode?

Photo mode is concentrated awesomeness. Absolutely love it. Couple of things I would add (letting us choose more than one character per team is really my biggest one) but its absolutely fantastic.

Yeah, I would like to take images from Dual Attacks, for example. That would be awesome.

Speaking of awesomeness, here's my humble attempt at those types.

And this is what I found at the Tournament of Power, turns out Dimps did create a whole model for Zeno (other than the box of dialogue)... To some extent. :P

I like this, but take out the frame :D

Most of the time I don't use the frames or stickers because, outside of the dust one or the reaction streamlines, they just feel out of place

Well then, it is good I always keep a more clean version of an image. Here it is.


I also created a little story with all this. By all means, please take a look here.
