Capcom unveiled today that Street Fighter V could have 16 playable characters at release, with 4 new fighters to the Street Fighter universe. Not just that, but the Japanese company guaranteed that each post-launch gameplay related content – such as brand new characters – would be earnable at no cost by playing the game.
That’s awesome news for all Street Fighter fans as players won’t need to purchase new DLC so that you can get access to new characters.
Here are the key features of Capcom’s new content strategy for Street Fighter V:
- The initial release is the only disc you will ever need to own
- All balance and system adjustments will be available for free
- All post-launch gameplay related content will be earnable for free by playing the game
As Capcom noted:
“With Street Fighter V, we want to change the way that players interact with the series, and create an ever-evolving environment for players to enjoy. By releasing new characters on a regular basis, it will ensure that there is always new content to look forward to in the short term, and it prevents the competitive environment from ever becoming stale.”
But Street Fighter V is only coming for PC and PS4.
