Street Fighter 5 stress tests on PS4 will run this Tuesday and Wednesday

It's not quite time for a new beta just yet, but Street Fighter V will run its stress test in North and South America this Tuesday and Wednesday on PS4.


Alright, let's face it. The Street Fighter 5 beta couldn't have gone any worse. Of course, that's the sort of thing that betas are designed to flush out and fix and now it looks like Capcom is ready to get back on the horse. As promised last week, the publisher is kicking off a new round of stress tests for PlayStation 4 and, following a successful run in European and Asian regions, it's now North and South America's turn.

The Capcom-Unity blog notes that the Street Fighter V stress tests will run on Tuesday and Wednesday from 4PM through 12AM PT. If these run without incident, Capcom will double back around and launch a full five-day global beta.

For more on Street Fighter V, Shacknews recently spoke to Peter 'Combofiend' Rosas about the game's competitive scene and how much the game will differ from its predecessor, Ultra Street Fighter IV.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
