Street Fighter 6 gets new mode details
Closed beta planned for October
Capcom has announced new details about the features and modes in the upcoming Street Fighter 6.
In World Tour mode, players will be able to create their own avatars to reflect their personal styles and flair. As players progress through the story mode, they’ll hone their avatar’s strength through Street Fights with various NPCs and meet masters like Ryu and Chun-Li who will teach them special moves from their own repertoires. Battle Hub serves as the lobby area to find matches against other players from around the world including online tournaments. When two players sit down at one of the arcade cabinets placed back-to-back throughout the Battle Hub, they can kick-off a match with the whole Battle Hub as their audience.
Capcom also introduced four World Warriors making their return to the streets: Ken, Blanka, Dhalsim, and E. Honda. The all-new Extreme Battle mode promises fast battles defined by new Rules and Gimmicks.
A Closed Beta Test will take place from Oct. 7-10, 2022 on all platforms with cross-play enabled. The Closed Beta Test will include Ranked Match, Casual Match, Battle Hub Match, Open Tournament, Extreme Battle, Game Center, and Training Mode. Eight characters will be playable during the test including Ryu, Chun-Li, Luke, Jamie, Guile, Kimberly, Juri, and Ken.
Street Fighter 6 is in development and is planned to release on PC, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5 in 2023.
