Street Fighter V – PC Beta Announced, Will Support Cross-platform Play With PS4 Version

Capcom has announced that the second beta – and the first PC beta – for Street Fighter V will begin this month. While the second beta will launch on October 22nd and will last until October 25th, PC gamers will be able to play only the last two days (October 24th and October 25th).

The good news here is that this new beta testing will offer cross-platform play between the PC and the PS4 versions.

As Capcom’s ComboFiend stated:

“This is a first for us and we are very excited for players across both platforms to finally have a chance to battle one another. Make sure to bring your best strategies as the number of people that you can fight against will be that much larger this time around.”

Street Fighter V’s second beta will let players choose one of the following characters:

Ken
Necalli
Vega
R. Mika
Rashid
Karin

The characters from the previous beta: Ryu, Chun-Li, Cammy, Birdie, Nash and M. Bison will not be selectable.
