Street Fighter fans are eager to play the game. Capcom is going to be running “stress tests” on Street Fighter 5 to ensure that it stands up to everything that gamers can put it through when it finally launches to the public. Capcom is starting the first of a series of region specific stress tests this week. That means the time is approaching closer when the public can play it.
The first regional Street Fighter 5 stress test is taking place in Europe now and will continue until Friday, August 21.
Once Capcom is confident with the results from the test it will reveal the date for other tests that will take place in North America and Asia. Once all of that is finished the dates and times of the official global beta test will be announced. The global beta test will take place for the previously promised five days of time.
They expect that these tests might have some users experiencing issues, so Capcom says this exercise is important, because all data received during the tests will ensure that the game performs “at an optimal level.” It’s all good because it will make the game even better and stronger in the end. That’s a good thing.
