Street Fighter V’s second beta test scheduled for later this month
Players on PlayStation 4 will get access to the beta on Oct. 22, while players on PC will get access on Oct. 24. And for the first time, cross-platform play will be included.
Six characters will be playable in the upcoming beta: Ken, Necalli, Vega, R. Mika, Rashid and Karin. However, Rashid won't be unlocked until Oct. 23 and Karin won't be unlocked until Oct. 24. Characters who were playable in the previous beta — Ryu, Chun-Li, Cammy, Birdie, Nash and M. Bison — won't be playable at all.
Street Fighter 5's second playable beta will feature ranked matchmaking, combined PS4 and PC leaderboards, player profile search and some unlockables that can be purchased with Fight Money. On the Capcom Unity blog, the company said that Fight Money earned in the beta won't carry over to the third beta test or the final game, and that Fight Money values are currently placeholder.
