Dragon Ball FighterZ Coming to PS5 and Xbox Series X|S on February 29

    PS4 and Xbox One versions miss out on rollback netcode.

    Bandai Namco and Arc System Works announced Dragon Ball FighterZ will finally launch on February 29 for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. That same day, the rollback netcode update will be available for the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S versions. 

    After various delays, Dragon Ball FighterZ finally receives its rollback netcode update. Of course, there are a few catches involving the update, such as the lack of support for the existing PS4 and Xbox One versions. PS4 and Xbox One users may upgrade to the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S versions for free, however. Rollback netcode will not be applicable in some of the game modes, and cross-play support is not supported. 

    Dragon Ball FighterZ PS5 / Xbox Series X|S Versions and Rollback Netcode Update

    Rollback netcode reduces the overall input lag and visual stuttering in online matches in fighting games, and Dragon Ball FighterZ players will be able to take advantage of this. The netcode predicts the inputs and executes theme immediately, then corrects any discrepancies afterward for a smoother experience. However, only the PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X|S versions of the game can benefit from the netcode update, according to Bandai Namco

    Moreover, there’s no cross-play support between the different platforms. Rollback netcode players will not be matched with delay-based players, and the PC version is able to toggle between the two. In addition, the rollback netcode system is not compatible with the Circle Party Match and Party Battle modes, which support six players and three players in a single match respectively. 

    Fans may also look forward to Dragon Ball: Sparking ZERO, the newest entry in the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi series. Dragon Ball Sparking ZERO brings a “historic” roster of characters, including newer fan-favorites from Dragon Ball Super. Thanks to Unreal Engine 5, Dragon Ball Sparking ZERO  features incredible visuals, dynamic effects, and in-game weather changes when transforming or charging ki

    Lastly, Dragon Ball FighterZ is available now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One worldwide.
