Update: Ultra Instinct Goku is now available to download and use in Dragon Ball FighterZ for players who own the FighterZ Pass 3. You can find out all of the information you need to know about the new playable character below.

Ultra Instinct Goku is scheduled to be released in Dragon Ball FighterZ on May 22. However, those that have already purchased FighterZ Pass 3 will be able to gain access to Ultra Instinct Goku two days earlier. In other words, many players will be using Ultra Instinct Goku tomorrow.

FighterZ Pass 3 costs $19.99 and comes with Kefla, Ultra Instinct Goku, and three currently unknown challengers. If you instead want to wait until May 22, Ultra Instinct Goku can be purchased individually for $4.99.

Funnily enough, Ultra Instinct Goku is actually the fifth version of Goku to join the roster — sixth if you count Goku Black. Of course, Ultra Instinct Goku isn't simply a palette swap of the Base, Super Saiyan, or Super Saiyan Blue versions of Goku.

In accordance to the lore behind Ultra Instinct Goku, this new fighter has access to abilities that allow him to casually pass through projectiles. Ultra Instinct Goku can even dodge assists but it's important to be aware that this technique does have countermeasures.

Despite not being available yet, it's already been demonstrated that Ultra Instinct Goku has access to some gnarly touch of death combos. Needless to say, this is a fighter armed with a lot of damage.

To celebrate the release of Ultra Instinct Goku in Dragon Ball FighterZ, the devs are also releasing a brand new Dramatic Finish against Kefla. Although Goku's unrefined version of Ultra Instinct form is featured in the cut-scene, it's actually Super Saiyan Blue Goku that triggers the sequence.
