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 modes – and something that you can have a lot of fun in.
Street Fighter 6 is 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 both exciting and fresh for newcomers and existing fans as we detail in our Street Fighter 6 review.
Street Fighter 6 Battle Hub
There are four main features of the Street Fighter 6 Battle Hub:
- Battle Cabinet
- Event Counter
- Game Center
- Hub Goods Shop
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, so this is a great place to show off any new threads you’ve got your hands on. But, if you sit down at a cabinet or matchmake you will be playing as the character of your choice.
As for communicating with other players, you can use a number of emotes with those around you as well as text chat. Here’s a little more about each of the features.
The Battle Cabinet is where you get together to take part in arcade-like one-on-one fights with other players. There are 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 it’s 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 an excellent 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. You can also engage in Avatar Battles while in the hub, as well as the Extreme Battle with custom rules.
If you want to update your custom fighter’s look, here’s where you can do it. There are tons of items available and 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. If you are looking for guides on the other modes in the game, check out what there is to know in our Fighting Ground explained guide and our guide to the different Street Fighter 6 ranks in the competitive mode.
