Dragon Ball FighterZ is said to have over 23 playable characters. 22 already confirmed from the Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super anime/manga. The 23rd character being a brand new game exclusive character, Android 21 (female Android besides 18). All of those characters at especial in their own way due to their strengths, weaknesses, and their status in the world of Dragon Ball. With that said, today we are going to be discussing the God of Destruction that will be joining the Dragon Ball Fighter Open Beta!
To begin with, this character is one of the already confirmed characters in the game and was featured in the recent promotional material for the game alongside Goku Black and Hit! The God of Destruction that will be playable in Dragon Ball FighterZ is Beerus of Universe 7. Beerus was the first God of Destruction we were introduced to in Dragon Ball Super. Of course his origins were from the Battle of Gods movie and then later reanimated in the Dragon Ball Super anime. Apart from that, Beerus has been a lead character in the development of the story of Dragon Ball Super and has helped Goku and Vegeta advance to levels beyond what was showcased in Dragon Ball Z.
From achieving Super Saiyan God form and then Super Saiyan Blue, Beerus has been a lead factor in the power scaling of Goku and Vegeta from the Buu Saga onward. As we know, the FighterZ open beta is begging on the 14th of January (13th if you preordered the game), and Beerus will be playable and selectable to try out. From what we have already seen of Beerus from his promo trailer, he can summon energy balls and trap you in an area while fighting.
As far as the closed beta was concerned, there was 11 characters playable. Those characters were Goku, Vegeta, Teen Gohan, Future Trunks, Krillin, Piccolo, Android 16, Android 18, Frieza, Cell, and Majin Buu. However we can confirm that the open beta will have more, as Beerus is included for the open beta and maybe others will be added (since the closed beta was supposed to have 9 only but 11 were playable).
