Samurai Shodown (2019) Rollback Netcode Open Beta Test Takes Place in January 2023


Coinciding with the new King of Fighters XV Season 2 release date info and announcement for January 2023, SNK confirmed a Samurai Shodown (2019) open beta test for the game's upcoming Rollback Netcode enhancement is set to take place on Steam also in January 2023. Unfortunately, the Samurai Shodown reboot in 2019 was not particularly known for having good or solid netcode being nearly "unplayable" online on some platforms. SNK's upgrade to Rollback Netcode for Samurai Shodown in early 2023 should breath new life into the 3-year-old fighting game now featuring a total of 31 playable characters after three seasons of DLC support. SNK's trailer (below) covers the KOF XV Season 2 news and concludes with the Samurai Shodown open beta announcement.

While the open beta test has only been announced for Steam, SNK confirmed they will also be implementing Rollback Netcode for Samurai Shodown (2019) on the following platforms: PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Epic Games Store.

SNK hasn't yet provided any additional details or specific dates or times regarding the upcoming Samurai Shodown (2019) open beta taking place this January, but we'll keep you updated. Stay tuned on Fighters Generation for continued coverage.
