Previously, it was reported that Capcom may have scheduled an open beta for Street Fighter 6 for sometime this month in April, 2023. According to Eiko Kano, a talent and streamer who is regularly invited to Capcom TV, an open beta for Street Fighter 6 is scheduled to happen this month in April, 2023. Going by the way he casually revealed this information, he didn’t seem aware that Capcom has yet to make an official announcement in this regard. A Street Fighter 6 showcase is set to take place on April 20, 2023, and that’s where the official announcement is expected to happen.
Street Fighter VI was announced on February 21, 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. The game introduces the Drive System, which involves managing the Drive Gauge. This gauge can be used to execute five different techniques that can help you improve your attack or defense. A Drive Impact is a strong blow that may absorb an opponent’s oncoming attack and results in a wall splat. Drive Parry may be used to deflect an opponent’s assault while also replenishing your Drive Gauge.
To quickly close in on their opponent, players can cancel out of a Drive Parry or standard attack into a Drive Rush. Overdrive Arts are similar to EX Moves from previous games in that they increase the strength of your special moves. To break free from tight situations, players can use Drive Reversal as a counterattack. The Street Fighter 6 community will have the opportunity to get creative with these five techniques, and use them in imaginative ways over the lifespan of the game.
