Capcom has announced that this week it will be running the first of a series of region specific stress tests for Street Fighter V, which aim to gather information from those areas.
The first regional test will be begin in Europe on Thursday August 20th from 16:00-00:00 BST, and continue on Friday August 21st from 16:00-00:00 BST. When Capcom is confident with the results from this test, it will share the dates and times for North America and Asia’s region specific tests, and once it has successfully completed each regional stress test, it will announce the dates and times of the official global beta test. The global beta test will still take place for the previously promised 5 days of time, so the regional stress tests are just an added bonus.
Although Capcom anticipates these tests being a smoother experience, there may still be issues experienced by some users which could hinder their experience.
It should be noted that your Street Fighter V beta will still work, and you should not require another code, however you'll need to make sure that you have installed the latest patch, if your beta has not automatically updated.
