From what we’ve seen so far, Capcom’s upcoming Street Fighter 6 could very well be one of the best fighting games ever when it comes out – and there’s so many reasons why. From an impressive Street Fighter 6 roster filled with the series’ best characters to the Street Fighter 6 World Tour mode, this game is going to be a fresh experience with familiar gameplay and flashy visuals. But, there’s still more to learn and that’s why we’re explaining everything you need to know about the Street Fighter 6 Battle Hub below.
Whether you’re planning to explore alone or battle your buddies, it’s important to know a little bit about what the Street Fighter 6 Battle Hub brings to the game and what it can offer you when you jump in. While you won’t always need to spend too much time here if you don’t want to, it’s a core part of the Street Fighter 6 experience – and something we can’t wait to play around with when the Street Fighter 6 release date arrives.
So, let’s cut the chit-chat and dive into some of the details. Here’s an overview of the Battle Hub and what it brings to Capcom’s fighting game.
Street Fighter 6 Battle Hub
Alright, first things first, we need to talk about the general layout of the Street Fighter 6 Battle Hub and what sort of communication this area of Capcom’s fighting game offers up.
The Battle Hub is an in-game area where up to 100 players at a time can get together and interact with one another. In here, you’re going to be playing as your custom fighter here, so this is a great place to show off any new threads you’ve got your hands on.
As for communicating with other players, you can use a number of emotes with those around you. There’s no information currently available on whether you’ll be able to chat freely or make the most of voice chat, while in this mode. However, we’re expecting this to be cleared up a little closer to launch.
Beyond this, there are four main features of the Street Fighter 6 Battle Hub that you need to know about:
- Battle Cabinet
- Event Counter
- Game Center
- Hub Goods Shop
Here’s a little more about each one.
The Battle Cabinet is where you get together to take part in arcade-like one-on-one fights with other players. There’s quite a few of these scattered throughout the Battle Hub, but you’re going to need to make sure you find a free one if you want to fight. If there isn’t one spare, you can always spectate those going head-to-head and wait until its’ free.
This, as the name suggests, is where you need to go if you want to check out the current events in Street Fighter 6. Here, you will be able to get the lowdown on any ongoing tournaments too – so, it’s a good place to check out regularly for the latest content and information about what’s happening in the world of Street Fighter 6.
If you want to take a trip down memory lane, the Game Center is the best place for it. Here, you can play a number of classic Street Fighter titles, competing for high scores and bragging rights – just like the good old days.
If you want to update your custom fighter’s look a bit, here’s where you can do it. There are going to be tons of items available and, we can imagine, more added throughout Street Fighter 6’s lifetime. So, when you earn some in-game currency, here’s where you will want to spend it.
Well, that’s all there is to it when it comes to Street Fighter 6 and the Battle Hub. We’ll make sure to update this guide, and you, when more information is revealed later down the line.
