The second Street Fighter V beta test kicks off on Oct. 21, and it’s going to reach even more people than August’s beta did. This time, PlayStation 4 and PC players in any country will be able to play together, and this beta will have an entirely different set of playable characters.
Capcom Unity has posted the schedule for the beta, which begins tomorrow and ends on Oct. 25. Capcom will also test their downloadable content service by adding new characters in the middle of testing.
