capcom Street Fighter 6 You’ll be getting another beta soon with a second closed beta set to launch soon on December 16th, the publisher announced this week. The second beta will run from then until December 19th and will consist of things like ranked and casual matches as well as a training ground and more accessible features. However, one of the advantages of this test is that it will be treated differently than it used to be, as it seemed like people were selling access to the first beta once they got a code.
This second beta test will consist of six different playable fighters such as: Luke, Jamie, Ryu, Chun-Li, Guile, Kimberly, Juri, and Ken. It doesn’t quite say what the full launch slate was announced recently, but there’s still a good spread of characters that people might be drawn to anyway given how popular many of them are. A character creation feature would be a thing too, in case none of these iconic characters are to your liking.
As for what platforms it will be available on, Capcom said the second closed beta will be playable on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X | S and PC. Crossplay will also be enabled, so whatever platform you’re on, expect to see competitors from different platforms in your online matches.

A couple of changes are listed, too, to show the change between the first closed beta and this one. One change that seems particularly useful is the addition of an option to reduce input delay which, as long as it doesn’t affect any other system too much, seems like something everyone should turn on.
“An option has been added to reduce input delay in the graphics menu,” reads a preview of this new option. “Turning this option on will shorten the gap between your inputs and the action happening on screen. This is especially useful if you’re using a monitor capable of displaying at 120Hz on PlayStation®5 and Xbox Series X | S.”
To combat code resale, Capcom also makes it so that you must have your Capcom ID and platform account linked together before applying to access the second closed beta, so make sure this is in order first before applying.
