Following the first open beta test that happened a couple of months ago, Arc System Works have announced that a second open beta test for Guilty Gear Strive will happen on May 13 8PM Pacific – May 16 7:59AM Pacific (May 14 11AM – May 16 1059PM Philippines) with a host of improvements, including the addition of a rematch function (yay!), and even two new characters in Anji and I-No.
You can view the full notes of the second open beta here, but some of it that stands out are:
- Crossplay between PS4 and PS5.
- Offline modes such as versus CPU and training.
- Rematch function has been added.
- Battle balance tweaks from general game mechanics to individual character abilities.
You may start downloading the beta client on May 7 8AM Pacific (May 7 11PM Philippines) but the game will only be accessible during the given schedule of availability.
Will you be playing the second open beta test? Guilty Gear Strive will release on June 11 for the PS4, PS5, and PC.
