Developed by Arc System Works, Guilty Gear Strive represents the latest instalment in the fighting game franchise - which looks set to be the biggest entry yet.
Originally scheduled to release last year, the game was delayed into April 2021 following negative feedback from an early beta, which faced criticism for its poor lobby system.
This latest beta looks to be a showcase of what’s changed for the title, with hopes of restoring some excitement around the release.
The open beta will support crossplay across PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5, with 13 characters available.
