More Guilty, More Gear
Guilty Gear Strive was supposed to have been released earlier this month, but was delayed until June. No doubt, fans were disappointed by that, but if it is any consolation, the final product will be all the better for it and there will be another open beta before then. Like the first beta, there will be several modes to choose from, including Versus, Tutorial, Training, and Online modes. Player-created rooms will not be available though. The first beta gave players access to 13 of the 15 final characters, but this time, you will be able to play as Ahji and I-No, who have since been revealed.
There are a few improvements and differences made in this beta. Online Mode now has Duel Stations, which appears to be a lobby system that allows players to match up with opponents. Through the Duel Stations, players can also elect to have up to three rematches. During matches, your ping will be displayed by milliseconds and rollback frames will also be visible to see the quality of connection between players.
The #GuiltyGearStrive Open Beta Test #2 details have been announced and will be available on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®5 from 8:00pm PST on May 13th to 7:59am PST on May 16th.
