Arc System Works’ Guilty Gear Strive is just around the corner. Ahead of its official release on April 9, players have the opportunity to check it out thanks to the beta going live later this week. As such, some players are asking how to get into the Guilty Gear Strive beta. In this guide, we’ll explain everything you need to know from its start times, to when it finishes and everything in between.
Guilty Gear Strive Beta Start Date & Times
The beta will officially start on Feb. 17 at 22:00 ET/ 19:00 PT. This will also be 03:00 GMT on Feb. 18 for those living in the UK.
This is the official time that those who have pre-ordered their copy of Guilty Gear Strive will be allowed to access and play in the beta.
If you’re not wanting to pre-order the game, there will also be an open beta which will start the day after. The open beta will be live on Feb. 18 at 22:00 ET/ 19:00 PT/ 03:00 GMT (Feb. 19).
How to Get Into the Guilty Gear Strive Beta
As we noted above, the Guilty Gear Strive beta officially kicks off on Feb. 17 for those who have pre-ordered a copy of the game itself. This can be done either via the PSN Store on PS4 or PS5, or by pre-ordering a physical copy of the game from your preferred retailer.
After 19:00 PT/ 22:00 ET on Feb. 17, those who have pre-ordered will be able to download the beta from the PSN Store by simply searching ‘Guilty Gear Strive.’
If you’re waiting for the open beta, then simply head on over to the PSN Store on Feb. 18 after 19:00 PT/ 22:00 ET and search for the open beta. Let the download complete and load it up and you’ll then be able to play with any of the 13 playable characters in the beta.
When Does the Beta End?
The beta will end on Feb. 21 at 06:59 PT/ 09:59 ET/ 14:59 GMT. This applies to both the pre-order access beta, as well as the open beta that begins the day after.
The good news is you won’t need a PS Plus subscription to play the beta, either. Though you will need an internet connection, so do keep this in mind.
