If you pre-ordered Street Fighter V, you are treated with the chance to play the Street Fighter V beta. Well, today is the day, and players will get a sample of the upcoming game starting at 6pm PST.

There are some caveats though; for example, you won’t be able to play with your friends online, according to the Capcom Unity blog. The game will be limited to random matches, and you will be playing with people from all over the world. Usually you would be playing with players in or near your area. (The final game will be doing that.) Capcom is “still working on [its] location-tracking/matchmaking algorithm,” and it’s using the beta “to get a large variety of different connections globally, so [it] can use that data to refine [its] systems.”

You’ll start off with just Chun-Li, M. Bison, Ryu and Nash starting today. Birdie and Cammy will be available Saturday. After choosing your character, you’ll be taken to the grid, where you can practice with your character, customize buttons or go back to the character select screen before the match starts.

The sharing features will be disabled, so don’t expect to share your winning or losing streak via screenshots or videos. As for Fight Money and experience points, these are just for looks and aren’t implemented yet.

Don’t expect to play the game from 11 p.m. PST to 1 a.m. PST, since maintenance will be occurring during that time.

Street Fighter V will be coming exclusively to the PlayStation 4 in 2016.
