Arc System Works just announced the release date for the Guilty Gear Strive Closed Beta Test. This will feature seven characters and a first look at the new user interface for the game. In addition to the Guilty Gear Strive Closed Beta Test, Arc System Works also revealed that the final game will use rollback netcode.
