Take to the Street, Fighter
Are your knuckles itching? Itching for a fight? A STREET fight? Well, take your aggression out on digital characters when the open beta for Street Fighter 6 is live. Capcom announced a surprise beta starting next weekend, not long before the full release.
Last month, Capcom released a demo for Street Fighter 6. It was released early on PlayStation, but became available on Xbox and PC a few days later. The demo was pretty limited and didn’t make use of any online PvP features. The open beta will make use of most of the base game features, but obviously will not its full capabilities.
Starting on May 19th, you can play the open beta. It uses cross-play, online match “Fight Request” functions, as well as Classic and Modern control schemes. The roster will also be expanded a bit. Beta players can use Luke, Jamie, Ryu, Chun-Li, Guile, Kimberly, Juri, and Ken, and can play on six different stages.
You’ve all been asking!
