Sony has announced that Dragon Ball: The Breakers — alongside Mafia II: Definitive Edition and Aliens Fireteam Elite — will be a PlayStation Plus “Essentials” title for North American and European subscribers this month.
Dragon Ball: The Breakers | PS4
In this online asymmetrical action game, a team of 7 ordinary citizens tries to survive the Raider (a classic Dragon Ball rival such as Cell, Frieza, and Buu), who will hunt them down and evolve during the game into an unstoppable force. Escaping won’t be so easy: cooperate with others while there is still time, but the Raider or other Survivors’ decisions might force you to go at it alone. As a Raider, you will enjoy overwhelming powers to hunt and wipe out Survivors. Master each Raider’s unique abilities to track, catch your victims to evolve, and become even more powerful! Whether you’re a Raider or a Survivor, choose your progression path and unlock skills, skins, and items to fine-tune your own personal strategy to escape as a Survivor or triumph as a Raider.
Titles in the “Essentials” category are free for all PlayStation Plus subscribers to claim during their month of availability — this month’s titles will be available from Tuesday, November 7 until Monday, December 4. In North America, the “Essentials” plan currently runs at $9.99/month or $79.99/year.
Bandai Namco recently outlined plans for the game’s fourth season of content in conjunction with its first anniversary, which includes forthcoming crossplay integration (allowing players on different consoles to play with each other):
Developed by Dimps, Dragon Ball: The Breakers puts a small group of seven survivors up against a “raider” in an asymmetrical race to survive, in a world shared with Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2. The game launched at a base digital price of $19.99 US (with physical versions coming at respective higher costs) on 13 October 2022 in Japan and 14 October 2022 in other worldwide territories across the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam).
