Street Fighter V’s Second Beta Test Kicks Off Tomorrow


Street Fighter V‘s beta is starting-up for the second time tomorrow, featuring several new characters for fans to test out and train with on their journey to become the ultimate world warrior.

For those that have been following the premiere beat ’em up since its announcement last year, you’ll probably be aware that Capcom have already held a beta prior to this one, but things didn’t exactly go to plan – server outages and heavy network traffic meant that the developer had to delay the public test to a later date.

However, the second attempt went off without a hitch, and since then, a whole host of new and returning fighters have been announced for the game. Previously playable characters Ryu, Birdie, Cammy, Chun-Li, M. Bison and Nash have been swapped out this time around in favour of some fresh faces.

Check the schedule below for the details of what’ll be happening over the next five days:
