Fuse With Your Friends In Dragon Ball FighterZ's Upcoming Free Co-Op Mode

Three individual players will take control of characters in the new Party Battle mode.


Dragon Ball FighterZ welcome the unhinged God Fused Zamasu to its roster recently and, very soon, players are getting another major update. On May 9, 2018, Bandai Namco is adding the FighterZ Cup monthly competition and Party Battle mode, which allows co-op for up to three players on each team.

Participants in the FighterZ Cup will fight and earn points for their respective Z-Union, a new feature added to the game in March. The Z-Unions are essentially clubs based on their favorite character. The longer a player stats in the Z-Union, the more rewards they receive.

The co-op party battles will add another level of excitement to Dragon Ball FighterZ's formula, forcing players to coordinate on a very high level as they tag in and out of fights. This will also serve as a refresh for Dragon Ball FigherZ esport competitions, opening up tournaments to teams. 

If you missed out on the roster additions that came before Fused Zamasu, check out our report on Broly and Bardock. Dragon Ball FighterZ is one of the best new fighters to hit the industry and, if you are apprehensive about the difficulty of these types of games, it's one of the more accessible fighters. Developer Arc System Works created a great control scheme that allows every player to execute powerful moves, but also rewards the more advanced players.

The lengthy additional patch notes for the upcoming Dragon Ball FighterZ update can be found on Bandai Namco's Facebook page. Dragon Ball FighterZ is available on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 right now. The update goes live on May 9.
