You’ll still have to wait to play until the beta goes live on the 11th, though!
PlayStation Plus users can download the new Capcom Fighters Network beta test today, if you’d like to have the file already downloaded and ready to run when the beta test starts up on May 11. It’s available to grab right now on the US/Canada PlayStation Store.
Another little surprise turned up on the PlayStation Store today as well: if you’ve been holding out on grabbing Battle Costumes for the original 16-character cast, they can now be purchased in a single shot bundle for $29.99 USD. Check out the Original Characters Battle Costume 1 Pack if you need to complete your collection. It’s a little encouraging to see that the costumes are getting a bundling and price break, at least eventually–as the majority of Premium outfits for the game have only been sold individually so far.
At the time of writing, the new beta and the Battle Costume bundle don’t seem to have appeared on Steam yet. The beta test is planned to run on both console and PC from May 11 to 14; it will feature the new CFN features, the upcoming balance patch, and all playable characters unlocked–including the recently-revealed Season 2 DLC fighter Ed.
