Windjammers 2 open beta hits PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5 on 11th August. This 10-day stream of action began at 2 pm UK time today and lasts until 22nd August.
Windjammers was originally released on Neo Geo in 1994, gifting the world its raucously entertaining multiplayer take on brutal competitive frisbee action. Playing out something like Pong meets Street Fighter, the goal is to pelt a frisbee into your opponent’s net until you have enough points to win.
What does Open Beta do?
There’s online ranked across a variety of courts. The open beta lets PS5 and PS4 owners go head-to-head, while Steam users are in a league of their own. Windjammers 2 is the long-awaited follow-up to Data East’s frisbee-tossing arcade classic, with hand-drawn 2D animation. The open beta includes several playable characters: Steve Miller, Biaggi, Sophie de Lys, and Gary Scott.
