The Multiverse tournament that will feature all elite fighters from 12 Universes is almost here and there's definitely a lot of things we should know about the upcoming arc: the Universe Survival arc.  

What's the fuss about Universe Survival arc?

Well, it's the next huge story arc for Dragon Ball Super after the Black Goku-Zamasu saga. The Multiverse universe arc didn't happen right away, because as we all know the seeds were already planted during the Universe 7 vs. Universe 6 tournament.

Here's the synopsis for the Universe Survival arc:   

"At Goku's request, the Omni-Kings' "Tournament of Power" martial arts tournament between universes now begins, but this also proves to be the beginning of universal destruction. What awaits the victors of this tournament, and the vanquished...?! How will these intense team battles between the elites of each universe turn out...?!

Returning Characters and New Objective:

Right now, Son Goku is in the thick of the battle for his life against Universe 6's fearsome hitman: Hit. And as what Whis implied during the episode, he might have hired Hit to train Goku for the upcoming tournament.

For beginners, Universe Survival arc suggests that all 12 universes are complied to participate in the tournament as ordered by Zeno-sama. Most importantly, fighters must enter the tourney with the goal of winning it, or else Zeno-sama will obliterate their universe into cosmic dust.

DBS producer Shunki Hashizume provides more details on the arc.

"Dragon Ball Super enters its new chapter, the "Universe Survival Arc". As you can see from the main visual, it'll be a full-throttle story where Goku and the rest of the Universe 7 warriors form a team to take on a tournament between universes!

Android 17 and Majin Buu are there too, so personally I can't contain my excitement at the thought of what kind of fights we'll see! Look forward to this new chapter that'll be sure to feature super-intense battles with nonstop appearances by the elites of each universe!"

As mentioned by Hashizume, Android 17 will be making his comeback since the Cell Saga in Dragon Ball Z. Majin Buu, Klerin, Tien, Master Roshi, Android 18, Piccolo and finally Ultimate Gohan will join Vegeta and Goku in their quest to bring home the victory to Universe
