Are you looking forward to Street Fighter V’s upcoming beta test? Depending on the region you reside in there are a number of different ways for you to get your hands on a portion of Capcom’s latest brawler before release.
If you live in North America, like I do, the easiest way to get access to the beta is by pre-ordering a copy of SFV through Amazon, Best Buy or GameStop. Beta codes for retailer specific pre-orders will be sent out next week on July 20th.
European PlayStation 4 owners have until July 15th to sign up for their beta. Those chosen to stress-test SFV will be sent a redeemable code via email on July 23rd.
Players in Asia will have to enter into a lottery of sorts to be selected. PlayStation Plus members have until tomorrow to snag the “Street Fighter V Closed Beta Ticket” to be entered into a chance to win access.
If you are wondering what will be included in the beta – six playable characters (four at start with Cammie and Birdie to be rolled out later on during the beta test). In terms of stages players will be tossed into a training room known as “the grid” while waiting for a match to begin, once the match has begun you’ll be fighting in either the Bustling Streets, Terminal Station or Forgotten Waterfall arenas.
Beta testing begins on July 23rd for 5 consecutive days.
