The closed beta will feature seven playable characters: Sol, Ky, May, Axl, Chip, Potemkin, and Faust. It also includes a first look at the revised character screen and in-game user interface.
Users can apply at the closed beta website from today until April 5 at 6:59 p.m. PT / 9:59 p.m. ET. Users who are selected to participate will receive an notification by e-mail on April 12 at 7:00 p.m. PT / 10:00 p.m. ET.
Arc System Works also announced that the release version of Guilty Gear: Strive will use rollback netcode for online play. (Rollback implementation is still being developed, so the closed beta will be using a delay-based implementation.)
A new trailer for Guilty Gear: Strive will be released on March 21 at 6:00 p.m. PT / 9:00 p.m. ET. You will be able to watch it on YouTube.
Guilty Gear: Strive is due out for PlayStation 4 in late 2020.
