Get Ready for the Battle: Street Fighter 6 Open Beta with 8 Characters Arriving Later This Month!

Capcom has announced a surprise Street Fighter 6 open beta test, which will run May 19-21, giving fans another chance to try out the game ahead of its June 2 launch.

What to Expect

The open beta will feature all the content from the second closed beta test, including the Battle Hub, an online lobby where players can customize characters, challenge one another to matches, or play classic Capcom games via in-game arcade cabinets. The roster for the open beta will be the same as the second closed beta test, featuring Ryu, Guile, Ken, Chun-Li, Juri, Luke, Jamie, and Kimberly.

Enjoy the Game but Don’t Create Characters

The surprise open beta follows the launch of Street Fighter 6 Demo Version, which included the World Tour story mode. Characters created during the demo will carry over to the full game when it releases next month, but players should note that the characters they create in the open beta will not transfer over. The good news is that fans will be able to download the open beta for free on Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5, and PC. The only exception is that the open beta won’t be available on PlayStation 4.

Street Fighter 6 Launches on June 2nd

Street Fighter 6 is launching on June 2nd for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC. This highly anticipated fighting game features new mechanics and additions to familiar gameplay. Already, the game has had two closed beta tests and a recent demo launch, so the open beta is an unexpected surprise for fans eagerly waiting for the game’s official release.

Final Thoughts

Street Fighter fans will be thrilled to hear that Capcom has surprised them with a new open beta test. Featuring all the content from the second closed beta test, players can challenge each other to matches or play classic Capcom games via in-game arcade cabinets. While the open beta is only available for a limited time and characters created in it won’t transfer over to the full game, fans will still get a chance to experience the game before its official release on June 2nd.

So, mark your calendars, because you don’t want to miss out on participating in the open beta test on May 19th – May 21st.
