Almost a month ago since we reported that the Street Fighter V Beta failed to launch across different countries, Capcom finally announced that they are ready to roll out once more.
Capcom previously launched a closed beta test for Street Fighter V on the PlayStation 4, where those with the PlayStation Plus subscription and pre-ordered the game may apply for the test, but with the enormous feedback and load on the servers, the closed beta test was cut shortly as players cannot connect to the game.
To ensure the servers can handle the large load, Capcom recently conducted regional server stress tests, and from the looks of it, they only encountered minimal issues. Now they are confident that they can finally launch another worldwide beta test.
The worldwide beta test for Street Fighter V will commence on August 28 at 4pm PST and will end on September 2 at 7am PST. After that the servers will be shut down for periodic maintenance.
Since Street Fighter V will still be in beta phase, expect some minor bugs and glitches within the game, as this is still not in the final stages of the development. Capcom would also like to remind that the beta will still experience some connectivity issues, but this will be an important data gathering session to ensure that the connections will be optimized when the game is finally launched.
Street Fighter V was announced at the 2014 PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas, prior to that, a leaked video of the announcement has spread days before the actual announcement day. It will be available exclusively for the PlayStation 4 and PC and reports say that it will be available in 2016.
Nine characters were revealed so far with only one new character Necalli, who is sort of a Mexican or Central American character that came from the Aztecs. Street Fighter V will run on the Unreal Engine 4 and will feature cross-platform gameplay. Expect to hear more about Street Fighter V soon as we get more updates.
