ARIKA have released more information about the Fighting EX Layer beta, following its announcement earlier this week. One crucial bit of information that wasn’t covered in that announcement was how to access the beta on December 11th. Well, as long as you’re a PS Plus member with an account in one of the following countries, you’ll be able to play:

North/South America:

  • USA

Unfortunately for South East Asian players, the Fighting EX Layer beta will only be available in Japan — so you will have to make a Japanese PSN account and use your free two weeks of PS Plus in order to play. The actual beta launch will be staggered, with the Americas getting access to the beta on December 11th, while the rest of the world gets in on December 12th.

Legacy controllers will not be available to use during the beta, but ARIKA are in talks to ensure that legacy drivers will be included in the final release of Fighting EX Layer. Unlike other recent online betas, players will have access to Training Mode as well as Player Matches, meaning you can do some lab work in between games. ARIKA have even uploaded two videos to their Facebook, showing exactly how long it takes to start an online match and switch characters while in Training Mode.
