The highly anticipated Dragon Ball FighterZ beta test is kicking off this weekend. Those who received a code on either PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to dive in during specific sessions on Saturday and Sunday.

This test will allow players to battle online using teams of three constructed from 11 of the currently announced characters. Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Future Trunks, Krillin, Piccolo, Cell, Frieza, Majin Buu, Android 16, and Android 18 should all be playable here.

Naturally, Super Saiyan Blue Goku and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta are not playable during the beta as we have yet to see a public build with them included.

At this point in time, those who have codes can preload the beta. You'll want to make sure to do this in order to avoid any waiting time, as this beta is divided up into limited-time sessions throughout the weekend.

Below you will find the official beta test schedule.

September 16th:
Session #1 - 2 a.m. to 5 a.m. PDT
Session #2 - 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. PDT
Session #3 - 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. PDT

September 17th:
Session #4 - 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. PDT

Bandai Namco will not be limiting direct-feed capture or live streaming of the Dragon Ball FighterZ beta in any way. The company encourages players to share footage of as many different characters, team combinations, and moves as they can.

While you wait for the first session, be sure to check out 15 minutes of Dragon Ball FighterZ beta footage.
