Now, we know it’s hard to believe but Street Fighter 6 is on the way and there’s a lot to be excited about. We can only imagine that there’s a lot of you out there who can’t wait to get your hands on this new fighting game from Capcom. Fear not, though, for there is another Closed Beta testing period coming up! With that in mind, we have everything you need to know about the Street Figther 6 Closed Beta start time and what you can expect to see from this testing period in-game – if you were lucky enough to get a Street Fighter 6 beta code.
Firstly, we need to talk about when the Street Fighter 6 closed beta is actually kicking off – right? Capcom has confirmed that the Street Fighter 6 Closed Beta 2 start time is at 00:00 PST / 03:00 EST / 08:00 GMT on December 16. This Closed Beta is scheduled to run until December 19, so there isn’t as long to play as you might like.
However, there’s every chance that this Closed Beta starts a little earlier than the aforementioned time. That’s just what Capcom has shared; but, last time, the Closed Beta started a little earlier. So, it’s worth keeping an eye on socials for more information there – if you want to maximise your time playing.
If you’re wondering what you’ll be able to do in the second Street Fighter 6 closed beta, you’ll be pleased to know that it seems like you’ll be able to do everything you could last time. That means, you’ll be able to play Training Mode, Ranked Match, Casual Match, Battle Hub Match, Open Tournament, Extreme Battle, and Game Center.
As always, you’re going to need to make sure your CAPCOM ID is linked to the account on your chosen platform. Some of the changes between the first Closed Beta and this testing period are as follows:
- Option to reduce input delay in Graphics menu
- Ryu projectile changes
- Command List updates
- Various Bug Fixes
If you want to know more, you can find all the details on the Street Fighter 6 closed beta test webpage here.
It’s also worth noting once again that you can, alongside checking out some of the new Street Fighter 6 characters, customise your own avatar for the Battle Hub. As far as we’re aware, you still won’t be able to change this during the beta. However, it should give you a taste of what character creation features you can expect to see when the Street Fighter 6 release date arrives.
