The third Street Fighter V closed beta is now live on Playstation 4 and PC!

The Street Fighter V servers are up and running and they will be until 08:00 PT (12/18 16:00 GMT). At 08:00 PT (12/18 16:00 GMT) the servers will go down for the first planned maintenance of 10 hours. Unfortunately, I’m stuck at work until 17:00 GMT and by the time the servers are back up I will be asleep, first world problems are becoming a real issue. Luckily there are still 2 more days of SFV this weekend. This third beta will be the first time Dhalsim and Zangief make their playable appearances outside conventions, I can’t wait to play with both of them.

More details on the third beta can be found below:


The beta will initially start with six selectable characters:

  • Ryu
  • Birdie
  • Cammy
  • Necalli
  • Nash

Dhalsim and Zangief will become available later during the beta period. And who knows, there might be a few more character surprises along the way!
