Over At Capcom Unity, Combofiend posted the details about Street Fighter V’s BETA.

The first BETA kicks off on July 23rd (18:00pm PT/21:00pmET), July 24th (03:00 CEST/10:00 JST)) for 5 days and is exclusive to PS4 users. The primary purpose of this BETA is to test the online net code, as this is something that Capcom is taking very seriously with Street Fighter V. The data that we receive from this BETA will help us to improve the net code in the final product, so we thank you in advance for participating in the BETA.

The beta will roll out with four characters playable immediately (Ryu, Chun-Li, M. Bison, and Nash), with Birdie and Cammy becoming playable on Saturday, July 25th .  Making a total of 6 playable characters. The same six that was at E3.  Capcom wants to delay the release of Cammy and Birdie so that they can also test out the NEW delivery content system.

When players press start they will be immediately taken to the VS screen.  They will select the character they want to play with and placed in training mode. And after the battle is over the player will be heading back to training mode aka The Grid. While in the Grid players will be queued for the next match.

There will be no local option to play Street Fighter V.  The main reason of this beta is to test the net code of the game.  Combofiend said this on the use of PS3 pad and fightstick “At this moment in time we’re currently evaluating PS3 joystick and controller functionality for the final product. That said, PS3 joysticks and controllers will not work for this BETA.”

There will be 3 stages that the players will randomly play on. You have Bustling Side Street (China), Terminal Station (London) And the brand new stage the Forgotten Waterfall which is an inspiration pulled from New Zealand. Hmmmm wonder what character will come from the New Zealand area.

Here is what the new stage looks like. Very rich in color and detail
