Button Bashers and skilful combatants the world over rejoiced at the return of Street Fighter with the upcoming instalment – Street Fighter V.

Fans with the foresight to sign up to the beta through the website should have started receiving their codes this morning, if not already!

Those who did sign up and haven’t seen their code – please note that they will be sent to the e-mail address that is registered to the appropriate PSN account.

The online beta will pit players up against each other in straight up versus matches so it’s literally all or nothing!

With four characters available to begin with and a further two to be added in on Sunday, players are spoiled for choice all things considered.

Characters available are as follows:
          Chun Li
          M. Bison
          Birdie (available on Sunday 26 July)
          Cammy (available on Sunday 26 July)

The beta will end on Wednesday 29 July across European territories so make sure you get some action in before then!

It is worth noting that the Beta has kicked off to a rocky start and Capcom have taken ownership to take it down for some routine maintenance. We will update more when we have some further information.

In the meantime, don’t hesitate to check out the official website for more news!
