According to the announcement, the beta will be available on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam, and it'll be accessible to everyone with a Capcom ID account. You won't need a PlayStation Plus or Xbox Live Gold account to play online in the beta, but, of course, it'll be required in the full release of the game.

Street Fighter 6 is releasing on June 2, 2023. The game is returning to its multiplatform roots and will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, and PC via Steam. Additionally, an arcade version will be released through Taito, though it may only be available in Japan for the time being.
Recently, we've seen many gameplay clips showcasing full matches played by the developers including Cammy versus Manon, Lily versus E. Honda, Marisa versus Manon, Dee Jay versus Dhalsim, Blanka versus JP, and Zangief versus Marisa. We recently also learned that Japanese actress Hikaru Takahashi joined the roster of commentators for the Real-Time Commentary feature introduced for the game.
Last, but definitely not least, we learned that Rashid, A.K.I., Ed, and Akuma will come as DLC, characters respectively in Summer 2023, Fall 2023, Winter (after the new year in 2024), and Spring 2024.
