Dragon Ball Xenoverse brings players back into the world of Dragon Ball, this time allowing to defend against time altering villains as their own created characters; Majin, Frieza, Human, Namekian, or Saiyan. One part fighting game, two parts RPG, players can level their created character's skills however they see fit; enhancing their ki blast skills, strength, health pool, or a bit of everything, while also choosing what skills fit their character best. As they progress through each subsequent Saga, and complete side quests, players unlock new skills to use, more experience to enhance their characters, and more classic Dragon Ball characters that they can play in non-Story mode missions. With a massive selection of well over 100 skills, nearly 50 unique characters, many of which with multiple unique outfit, power and skill combinations, achievement hunters can enjoy the game in countless different ways, while seeking the maximum gamerscore. Which is great, because that 100% will likely take quite a while.
- Save history and the future--save everything!
Story Mode pits players against villains old and new across numerous Dragon Ball Z sagas taken from both the show and some of the movies. A new enemy has appeared with the ability to alter time, and shift events against the mighty heroes of Dragon Ball Z, and you have been summoned by Trunks (Future Trunks, that is) to travel through time to assist, and often save heroes as they come to a breaking point. Each saga has its own associated achievement, including a secret saga that appears after the credits roll the first time, and each saga becomes progressively more difficult, potentially requiring players to take time off to level up in parallel quests, or to train with the various master characters in the game.
All achievement-related unlocks in the story come naturally; including fighting arenas/maps, new characters and skins, and of course the saga completion unlocks.
- Complete all Parallel Quests (most, but not all, unlock naturally).
- Gain Experience to reach level 80.
- Gain character variations/skins, ultimate attacks, super attacks and better equipment.
Parallel quests, or PQs, are less significant alterations in the timeline that have been made, or sometimes quests where allies in Tokitoki city (the main quest hub) have asked your character to join them in combat. The quests will be your primary source for: experience points - if you hit a wall in story mode, do some PQs to level up, super and ultimate skills - unlocking cool abilities like a boss, new character skins for classic characters, dragon balls for summoning Shenron - dropped by unique enemies found in certain PQs, and finally a unique set of items required to start the secret story saga.
Unlike story mode, PQs can be done solo or in a group of either AI or human players, allowing you to cut through your enemies quicker, or to kick back with some friends.
- Take part in, win, and observe 7 Endless matches.
- Send and receive Gifts.
- Favorite another player.
On top of multiplayer parallel quests, you also have the option to fight against other players in 1v1, 2v2 or 3v3 combat by speaking with the Online Battle droids in the Time Machine Station section of Tokitoki City. In terms of achievements, you can gain a majority of them by winning 7 matches in endless mode, as they count as games participated in, and won for both Endless mode and normal combat scenarios. You also have the option to watch players during these battles, for yet another achievement.
As you interact with players, you will get the chance to favorite them so you can find them easier in the future, and also send or receive gifts from them by using the Time Space Delivery system in Plaza of Time.
- Max training with all Masters (ALWAYS have a master).
- Gather all Dragon Balls 7+ times.
- Farm remaining Super/Ultimate Attacks and any missing character skins from PQs.
After reaching level 80, completing the story, and all parallel quests, you will likely need to dive into farming for Dragon Balls for the achievements related to gathering the Dragon Balls, and summoning Shenron, which also tie into the super, ultimate, and character collection achievements. These Dragon Balls can be found in a number of parallel quests, and they have a chance to drop from Patroller NPCs that appear in those PQs. You will also need to take this time to finish training with all masters, which thankfully pairs very well with endlessly farming PQs, which you will also need to do to gather any remaining Ultimate and Super Attacks you need to get from both PQs and Master Training.
