Ok. Seriously enough with the DLC Characters and just make a proper Xenoverse 3 already.

Why do people keep saying that? XV3 is not being delayed for XV2's DLC. There's only one Dragon Ball game a year, and the next one is not XV3. So we have two options. Either wait until XV3's turn, which may or may not be after the untitled Unreal Engine ARPG, or get DLC to help pass the time.

By DLC alone its up to almost $100, which was more than the original game + season pass.
People dont want to pay for more and more dlc characters who we'll inevtiably get in XV3 anyway. The game is going on almost 4 years old, they should just let it die.

If you don't think it's worth the money, don't buy it. Personally, I'm waiting to see if it'll have new story content. The last one broke the pattern by not having one, and if this one doesn't have any new story mode, I'll be passing on it.

I haven't bought the past three and won't be buying this one either.

I'm also hoping they add some new story elements and options. I do remember them mentioning that they plan on adding more co-op modes and options. I would love to get some co-op story mode additions. I totally felt the Fu missions should've been co-op. For a game that talked so much about the story, which was pretty bland in my opinion, really needed to include some multiplayer elements with it. But I'm with you, if I don't like the DLC, I just won't by it. XV3 will come at some point, but there are so many other games to play in the mean time.

I can't speak for other people. But I was Tired of XV2 a year after it came out. I can't even remember the last dlc pack I bought for it.

Don't get me wrong I would Pop back in every few updates. But farming Tp to buy things got boring real quick and Figure battles was a incomplete story last time I logged in and was also boring.

I'm not paying for new dlc characters when I barely play it now and when I'm not going to use the new characters enough times to justify the money spent on them.

I want a new story that isn't self insert into raditz to buu, and new hub world to enjoy, new races to play (still have Andriods, Demons, and Kais left) and hopefully a better engine that doesn't have as many bugs XV and XV2 have.

They're not going to make a brand new engine from scratch. It just wouldn't make good business sense to do that. I don't want them too either, because I'd rather they work on creating interesting stories and quests rather than spend 2+ years getting a new engine to work, then doing lackluster work on the actual meat of the game.

The rest is definitely possible, however. While I doubt we'd get Androids as a playable race, I could see Kais/demons as a new race. In Fusions, the two were lumped together as "Otherworlders," I think. As for the story, I and some others were hoping the Fu DLC was the team testing out a branching storyline mechanic for XV3. If that were applied to the new timeline that hatched from Tokitoki's egg, that could make for a really interesting story.

Yeah, Androids would have too much overlap with Saiyans and Humans (which have a ton as is). I just don't see the draw for them, personally. Just make a human character call them an android.

I appreciate the fanservice(even though she probably has a small fandom) of bringing in Ribrianne, but I'm bored as hell with this game for a long time now. One iteration of Broly when he displayed at least three different and interesting forms, and we got the boring one from Z that lands zero blows in the movie. I get it, the strongest form but the others weren't just means to get to the buff form.
Or still not having the strongest Super enemy, LB Jiren who appeared over a year ago, or Omen Goku, Hakaishin Toppo, SSBE Vegeta.

The roster was initially great but I feel we are missing the most important characters from the last part of the show while getting Fuu, Ribrianne, SSGod Vegeta... Like 5 Rasberries and 0 Toppo.

It just bothers me that we are living in 2020 and can't get a full character game from the deciding part of the show that ended a year ago, not 30 years ago and nobody cares anymore.

We still have at least one more pack after this so chances are Toppo and possibly Dispo will be in it. It's not everyone but it gets us close.
July 9th 2018 will be remembered as the day Broly became canon.

Gotta save some big hitters for the sequel. I expect Ultra Instinct Omen Goku will be used to entice people to XV3, along with SSBE Vegeta. We'll probably get the missing forms of new Broly then as well.

And when will it be released? Or are we waiting for something more than Vegeta and Ribrianne?
I am pissed how they still and probably won't ever adjust the audio levels of newer DLC... Everyone since Baby and Kefla have audio levels down a lot and the anime music as well. So when you play as Kefla with normal BGM, you almost can't hear her and vice versa, when you play with anime BGM, you almost can't hear it over the SFX and voices.

Seeing as they didn't adress it since it bugs me, I have send them information trough support and wonder, what they will answer back :)

There'll be at least one more character set so that should be out by the end of the year. With CC2's game releasing this year and FighterZ just releasing last year, I expect to see XV3 next fall and possibly as a launch game for Ps5.

I meant these upcoming DLCs, I hope that I won't wait half a year for Vegeta recolor and Ribrianne :D

Wait. The game deserves to die, or it deserves the fact that it hasn't died? Your wording is a bit unclear.

I am saying it deserves the longevity it has received. When was the last time a Dragon Ball game was relevant longer than 3 months after release? Fighterz and XV2 are really sticking around and I think that's a good thing. Although I have no objections to a XV3 announcement.

Speaking of announcements, anyone think we'll get something at E3? I believe it was 2 years ago we got Fighterz. The year before that Jump Force was announced. All this happened at Xbox's conference. I think we will see DBZ Project pop up again.
