For newcomers or those that weren’t in a position to get in final time, you may must undergo the applying course of. 

Capcom would not appear too eager on having a repeat of the earlier beta’s key-selling shenanigans. A great deal of beta entry keys appeared on the market in October, benefiting from the truth that many missed out on being chosen. Forking out for one is how a good few individuals I do know ended up taking part in, however the developer would not need it taking place once more. This time, “attributable to unauthorized reselling of entry codes,” you may must have already got your Capcom ID and most well-liked platform linked to be given direct entry to the second beta. There’s additionally a wee warning in opposition to modding the beta, probably in response to those that managed to crack the game and hold it playable as soon as October’s beta wrapped up.
