The long-awaited sequel to the best fighting game sports title, Windjammers, is getting a beta this week.
Starting 11th August at 9pm GMT+8, players will get to try out the Windjammers 2 beta for PC, PS4, and PS5. The beta will end on 22nd August.
Here’s what players both old and new can expect:
“Athletes can face off in online ranked play across courts spanning a sandy beach, roaring stadium, rowdy ring, or a towering rooftop complete with shot-deflecting bumpers.
The open beta allows PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 owners to go head to head, while Steam users can battle to conquer their own league. Score goals through unpredictable play, unleash special moves for an upper hand, and climb the open beta’s leaderboards to become an undisputable champion.”
The beta will feature four stages: Beach, Ring, Stadium, and Rooftop. The characters you get to use are Steve Miller, Gary Scott, Loris Biaggi, and Sophie de Lys. Here’s the lowdown for each character:
- Steve Miller (United Kingdom)
Clever and agile, Steve excels at executing split-second reversals and tricky curved shots.
- Gary Scott (United States)
The American heavyweight may be slow, but he’s one of the game’s most powerful characters.
- Loris Biaggi (Italy)
Swift, strong, versatile…this well-balanced champion hasn’t lost a step.
- Sophie De Lys (France)
We just had to add a French character, right? But attention: she’s fast and furious.
