Capcom is holding an open beta for Street Fighter 6 later this month, and players can pre-load the game ahead of time. Here's what you need to know.

Street Fighter 6 was announced back in February 2022 and since its announcement, select players have been able to try out the upcoming fighting game as part of closed betas. The first ran from Oct. 7, 2022 to Oct. 11, 2022, while a second beta arrived on Dec. 16 and ended on Dec. 19.

The betas offered eight playable characters, and supported crossplay between Xbox, Steam and PlayStation.

Now, more players will be getting the chance to play Street Fighter 6 ahead of its release on June 2, thanks to an upcoming open beta. Capcom has confirmed that the open beta will feature the same content as the closed beta test conducted in December, though further adjustments, including character balances, will be made to the release version of the game.

The characters available during the open beta are:

  • Luke
  • Jamie
  • Ryu
  • Chun-Li
  • Guile
  • Kimberly
  • Juri
  • Ken

Players will also be able to drop into the following stages:

  • Metro City Downtown
  • Genbu Temple
  • Carrier Byron Taylor
  • Tian Hong Yuan
  • The Macho Ring
  • Training Room

In order to join the open beta, players will need to register using a Capcom ID and by linking their desired platforms. But once that's all out of the way, players will be able to pre-load the open beta ahead of its launch.
