Update: At 9pm the beta was updated server-side to add Birdie and Cammy to the character roster.

Capcom have announced region specific stress tests for Street Fighter V. The original beta test was scheduled to begin on 23rd July and end five days later, however it was cancelled due to the servers being overloaded. The region specific tests are designed to isolate the problems faced during the original beta test.

The first regional test will begin in Europe on Thursday 20th August from 4pm-12am BST.  This test will conclude on Friday 21st August, also beginning and ending at the same time as the Thursday test. These regional tests will not replace the global beta test which will proceed for the full five days at a later date.
