Guilty Gear Strive: Arc System Works release teaser trailer

Details on the latest Guilty Gear Strive open beta were revealed in an Arc System Works blog post, which revealed that two new characters will be playable in the latest beta test.

These characters are Anji and I-NO who will be playable alongside all the other characters from the first beta test’s roster.

Outlining the next open beta Arc System Works said: “Arc System Works America, Inc. is pleased to announce that the Guilty Gear -Strive- Open Beta Test #2 (OBT2) will be available on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 from 8:00pm PST on May 13th to 7:59am PST on May 16th. Game data will be downloadable at 8:00am PST on May 7th. Anji and I-NO will now be playable along with all characters from the initial roster, and features the English voice cast.”

Here are the different modes that will be playable in the next Guilty Gear Strive beta…

Versus – Play against the CPU or another player.

Tutorial – Learn the basics of gameplay.

Training – Practice with custom settings.

Network – Play against others from across the globe. Player Matches (player created rooms) will not be available during the beta test.

An online connection will be required to play the Guilty Gear Strive open beta, even for the modes that typically are played offline such as training and versus.

But thankfully if you do want to try your hand and test your skills against the competition online you won’t need a PS Plus membership to access the network mode in the beta.

Guilty Gear Strive is a gorgeous looking new fighter from the masters of the genre, Arc System Works.

It features visuals that look like they’ve come straight out of an anime you’d watch on Funimation or Crunchyroll, with stylish, show-stopping animated sequences that appear during stage transitions to make things feel a bit more cinematic.
