Since arriving on Steam, the PC version of Ultra Street Fighter IV has been experiencing a variety of issues, many of which affect its network functionality. Capcom has been working on a patch to alleviate these issues, and it seems as if they are ready to roll it out in a limited fashion later this week.
According to Capcom representative wbacon, the opt-in beta program will begin on Wednesday, August 20, for players who are interested in taking part and providing feedback to the developers.
“Due to the complex nature of network testing, it’s often quite difficult to catch these issues until the game has been released to a very large network environment,” wbacon mentioned in the announcement. “Similarly, we feel that our best chance to accurately determine the cause and quickly provide a fix is to use large scale beta testing that will provide us with accurate ‘real-world’ results.”
Full details are expected to become available as soon as the beta starts, so stay tuned for more information in the coming days.
