The beta runs from Oct 22-25.

According to Capcom, the beta for the first time will allow cross-platform competition between PC and PlayStation players, include ranked matchmaking and leaderboards that merge scores from both these platforms.
Winning fights will earn you Fight Money which can be used to purchase in-game items, and there will be a bunch of new items in the beta.

Street Fighter V has been announced as an exclusive title for the PC and PlayStation 4 platforms. It is expected to be available during the first quarter of 2016.
Videogame arcade junkies would no doubt be familiar with the Street Fighter franchise.
Introduced by Japanese game publisher Capcom in the late 80s and gaining massive popularity with the sequel Street Fighter II, this fighting game franchise is one the most influential in the annals of gaming history.
The subsequent sequels and spin-offs, developed for Nintendo's and Sony's Playstation home consoles, helped to turn videogames into a mainstream entertainment activity.
