Guilty Gear Strive open beta begins later this month
An open beta test for Guilty Gear Strive will begin later this month on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4, Arc System Works has confirmed.
The beta will begin for all PlayStation owners on February 18th at 6:59 a.m. PT and will be live until February 21st at 6:59 a.m. PT. However, players who pre-order any edition of the game from the PlayStation Store can jump in one day early on February 17th.
During the open beta, players will be able to try out 13 of the game’s 15 characters across a variety of modes, including Versus, Tutorial, Training, and Network.
The upcoming beta will use a rollback netcode for online matches and show the current ping and number of rollback frames at the top of the screen during matches. Arc System Works asks that players who file reports during the beta include both of these numbers.
Guilty Gear Strive launches April 9th, 2021, for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, and PC. Owners of the game on PlayStation 4 can upgrade to the PlayStation 5 version for free.
