As scheduled, Bandai Namco started the network test of Soulcalibur VI on consoles. This means that you can already test the fighting title on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One for a limited time.
The purpose of the Beta is to test the servers of the game, so players will have access to online matches in the Ranked Match mode. To participate, you must only look for the title in your console store and download the test client.
Bandai Namco specified that Xbox One users will require an active Xbox LIVE Gold subscription to participate. Take into account that the client was available for download in the past days, but you are still on time to get it.
The company shared a manual for the test, which is quite useful to learn the basic mechanics of the game, as well as to know the various types of movements of the available characters. You can check it in this link.
The network test allows you to play with Mitsurugi, Sophitia, Groh, Nightmare, Xianghua, Kilik, Ivy, Zasalamel, Geralt, Sigfried, Taki, Yoshimitsu, Maxi, Talim, Voldo and Tira. The combats will be developed in several scenarios. At the moment, there are no details on whether the content of the test will be rotated or if there will be other news on the weekend.
Soulcalibur VI will arrive on October 19 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
