The Street Fighter V beta period will soon be open for those lucky enough to be selected as beta testers. Capcom announced the beta at E3, but now they’ve fully outlined how to get into being a Street Fighter V beta tester. It differs across regions, so here’s the full list.
If you’re in North America (USA and Canada) and want to be a Street Fighter V beta tester, you’ll need to preorder the game from one of the following retailers:
- Playstation Network
When you buy the game, you’ll need to fill in your details so an email can be sent to you from July 20. The exception is the Playstation Network, in which case you’ll automatically be able to download the beta from July 20.
Latin American players can only get access to the Street Fighter V beta by preordering the game through the Playstation Network. As mentioned above, that will grant you automatic access to the beta from July 20.
Asian players will have to download the Street Fighter V Closed Beta Test Ticket from the Playstation Store. Applications are only open to Playstation Plus members and must be done by July 14. Those successful will get an email on July 21. The exception is Japan, which must follow the same process but one day in advance – so submit your application by July 13.
Europe (and the rest of the world)
The European process covers not just Europe, but Australia, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, and pretty much everywhere else. Users in these regions won’t get access to the beta by preordering the game. Instead, you’ll have to go to this link on the Playstation Network to sign up. You can register before July 15, but it’s not clear how many people will be selected. Those who are successful should get an email on July 23.
Capcom gives a list of which countries fall under which regions here.
