The first half of 2023 is almost over, and so far it has been quite an interesting year for gamers. Especially for fighting game fans, it’s already turning out to be a great year. Street Fighter 6 saw its launch on June 2nd, while Tekken 8 is rumored to be having a beta test sometime later this month, and Mortal Kombat 1 has a release window of September 2023. All in all, it’s a great time to be a fighting game fan. While we wait for Tekken 8 and Mortal Kombat 1 to launch, we can certainly enjoy Street Fighter 6. Well, with new in-game mechanics introduced in the latest SF title, it can get confusing to understand them all. So, this guide is all about what Pressure Time means in Street Fighter 6 and how to use it.
When it comes to innovations, fighting games tend to introduce and include new mechanics and such with each release. And it’s kind of necessary for them because, without such things, all players will be doing is playing the same game again. Imagine playing Tekken 8 with the same old combos from Tekken 5, or 6. Well, this is not something fighting game fans really want. That said, Street Fighter 6 was launched with a new Drive System mechanic and also introduced a new term called Pressure Time. So, what exactly does this mean? Well, let’s find out!
Street Fighter 6 Pressure Time Explained & How to Use it?
Pressure Time is a newly introduced gameplay mechanic in Street Fighter 6. What it does is that whenever an enemy is about to perform any kind of move, a white outline will surround them. It doesn’t matter whether the enemy is performing a block or an offensive attack; the white outline will appear irrespective of a move. Furthermore, it could occur either before a move or after it is performed by the enemy.
Despite Street Fighter 6 being one of the most newcomer-friendly games in the series, it can still be hard for new players to fully grasp all the gameplay mechanics and combos in the game. But as you advance through the game, you will eventually start getting familiar with them. At first, getting comfortable with “Pressure Time” may take time since Street Fighter 6 is certainly the “flashiest” game in the whole mainline series. But with enough practice, you will eventually get hold of it.
How to use it?
So, how do you use “Pressure Time”? First and foremost, “Pressure Time” isn’t an active mechanic like the Drive System. It’s not a move that you can perform. So, when the World Tour objective asks you to “Use Pressure Time”, what it means is that you need to utilize it to attack the opponent. That said, when you see a flash of a white line on an enemy’s silhouette, take advantage of the “pressure time” and use your own attack on the opponent to stun them and further beat them into submission.
We certainly hope that this guide has helped you get to know what “Pressure Time” exactly is in the game. For more guides and information on Street Fighter 6 and other games in general, don’t forget to bookmark DigiStatement.
