Dragon Ball games have certainly had their ups and downs over the years. For every Dragon Ball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 3 there was a Dragon Ball Final Bout waiting in the wings. 2015's Dragon Ball Xenoverse was undoubtedly one of the great ones though, particularly for fans of the franchise. Clearly it did something right as well because Dimps is back with a sequel. Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 promises to expand on everything players loved about the original with improved visuals and support for up to 300 players online at any one time.

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 32-bit 
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 945 3.0 GHz
  • RAM: 2 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 2GB or AMD Radeon HD 6570 2GB
  • DX: DirectX 11

Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 10 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-3470 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-6300 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 or AMD Radeon HD 7770 2GB GHz Edition

So the first thing that jumps out is that the system requirements for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 are extremely low. If you know a GTX 660 (which launched in 2012) can max it out, you also know we're on easy street. CPU and memory demands are also right down at the low end, ensuring most gamers should be able to run DBZ Xenoverse 2 in some fashion.

One thing to watch out for however is the 2GB minimum VRAM requirement. Some GTX 650s are 1GB and most Radeon HD 6570s are also 1GB. Some add-in-board partners stretch to 2GB GDDR5 however. Likewise with the recommended. You should be fine with a GTX 660, but you'll need a special 2GHz Edition of the Radeon HD 7770 to meet the requirements. Any modern graphics card should be pretty much fine on this front however, with the $100 GTX 750 Ti in theory capable of maxing out Dragon Ball Xenoverse.

Aside from the CPU there's very little disparity between the minimum and recommended requirements for DBX2. This suggests there won't be a great deal of graphics options to tweak, or at least any which drastically affect performance. This will likely be a straight up console port so don't be surprised to see a 1080p resolution cap also.
