Rise up with an intital six.
Starting at 12:01AM PT tonight, the third 'Street Fighter V' beta will become available to play on both PS4 and PC. (Previous beta players are in, new players need to preorder here or get a code from a current beta participant.) This beta will begin with six playable characters: Ryu, Birdie, Cammy, Necalli, Nash, and Laura. Dhaslim and Zangief will follow at some point, and Capcom is teasing even more character possibilities for this beta.
This will be a great chance to play the game and learn the characters (new and old). This is an online PS4 vs PS4, PC vs PC, and PS4 vs PC, 2 player beta, but there will be a way to play against the computer while waiting for a human match.
Here are the modes and schedule times:
Fight for glory and status in high stakes matches!
Enjoy more casual matches without pressure.
Improve your skills against a training dummy with a variety of options and settings.
Capcom Fighters Network (CFN)
Check out the latest leaderboard rankings, search for replays, and rivals.
Customize your character profile and button configuration, among other options.
Manage the screen and sound settings.
