This network open beta test will feature online multiplayer between players on the different PlayStation®4/PlayStation®5/Steam platforms.
The beta test will be held using a separate application from the Guilty Gear -Strive- game, which will be available for download from the stores on each platform.
The application download and beta test participation will be available for free to anyone, even if they haven’t purchased the game. This would be a great chance to invite a friend to play with you!
