If you weren’t one of the contributors to the Skullgirls Indiegogo campaign, you can still join in on the closed beta fun that started today, August 1st.
All preorders of Skullgirls will gain access to the Skullgirls closed beta, currently being served up on Steam. The game was also just added to the Steam catalog today. You can even choose to buy a 2-pack or 4-pack of the game. (I suppose some people have to be ballers to get their friends to play with them).
For the rest of us without magical fat wallets, we can get preorders of Skullgirls for 20% off through GameFly for a Steam key. Just use coupon GFDAUG20 (or GFDAUG20UK if you’re in the UK) and the game will be only $11.99 – a solid $3 off the $14.99 list price. Since closed Beta started today, you’ll get access to that as well in your Inbox after purchasing.
Skullgirls will be fully released for the PC on August 22nd. System requirements for Skullgirls are relatively reasonable, as you’d expect for a 2D fighting game. Minimum system requirements listed on Steam are a semi-vague “dual-core CPU” with 2GB of RAM and a minimum Intel HD 3000 level graphics processor. (So essentially, Intel 2nd Gen Sandy Bridge Core series processors or better will do the trick.) If you have a discrete GPU newer than 2010, the game should run without a problem.
As a bonus for following this column, below are 50 beta keys that will get you into the Skullgirls beta on Steam right away. If you use one, please make mention of it in the comments section below, so that the rest of the community knows it’s gone.
