Street Fighter 6 Closed Beta Set for Oct. 7-10

  

At Tokyo Game Show '22, Capcom announced a Closed Beta Test for Street Fighter 6 which takes place October 7th - 10th on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, and Steam featuring crossplay between all platforms! The beta will have 8 playable characters (including Ken), online matches, tournaments, Training, Extreme Battle, and more. You can apply here to enter the closed beta via Capcom's official site. Only those with a Capcom ID can enter, so you'll have to create an account if you don't already have one.
 

 
In addition to normal online matches, the closed beta will even let users try out Extreme Battle, shown briefly in the TGS '22 reveal trailer. Extreme Battle offers a less serious "party mode" type experience with in-game gimmicks like a Tekken Ball-esque mode, fighting with a bull that randomly enters the battle, and even a mode where fighters encounter exploding enemies from the Mega Man series. On Friday, Capcom shared a new trailer for Extreme Battle mode (below).
 

 
  Also, let's take a moment to fully appreciate the glow up! This Luke promo artwork for the closed beta test is pretty sweet.
 

  
There's a reason they chose Luke for this artwork, too, because Luke plays a major role in SF6's single-player mode and introduction. (In World Tour, Luke will be your coach as you sign up for the basic training course.) It's possible the basic training course will be available in the beta, in some form, although this has not been confirmed. As explained in the latest details about Battle Hub, players will encounter many Street Fighter legends to help them along their way and even have their avatars learn their techniques.

Capcom's official site for Street Fighter 6 was also updated with the latest info on the game's modes, character storylines and more content for all newly announced characters, so head on over there and check it out. Stay tuned on Fighters Gen for more TGS '22 news and further updates!
