Street Fighter V Beta Stress Test in North & South America Starts Tomorrow, August 25

Following a couple stress tests last week in Europe, Capcom has announced that some Street Fighter V beta stress tests are coming to North and South America this week.

Here’s when they’ll take place:

  • Tuesday, August 25: 4pm – midnight PT
  • Wednesday, August 26: 4pm – midnight PT

Once these tests are complete, Capcom will reveal the dates and times of the official five-day global beta test.

They add:

Please note that although we anticipate these tests to run smoother than before, there may still be issues experienced by some users. All data received during each of the stress tests will help us improve the online experience moving forward, and we appreciate your understanding and support. Please make sure to follow @SFVServer on Twitter, as we will be posting updates regarding the online server status there if any issues arise.

Additionally, we recommend following the two pointers below to achieve the best online experience:

  • Wired internet connections provide more stable speeds than Wi-Fi, so use a wired connection if you can.
  • Avoid downloading files in the background while playing, as it takes up bandwidth and slows your connection.

Meanwhile, Capcom Producer Yoshinori Ono went on Twitter to say that the big PAX Prime Street Fighter V announcement they have planned for this weekend is something he’s wished for:

Will you be participating in the stress tests?
