Capcom has revealed all the remaining details about the upcoming phase of the Street Fighter 5 beta.


Phase 2 of the Street Fighter 5 beta was recently dated. And today, we get to find out exact times for servers becoming available, maintenance, and more.

This phase is important for two reasons. The first is that it will provide the first opportunity for cross-platform testing between PC and PS4. It will also be a way for Capcom to test out its character delivery system.
