Capcom announced new details on Street Fighter V at EVO 2015, and here are the three promises they’re making for the upcoming fighter:
- 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
That last point is exactly what it sounds like—all gameplay content, including new characters, will be available to players for free, if they care to put in the effort to earn it by playing the game.
Street Fighter V will launch with 16 playable characters, with four of them being brand new. Post-launch, Capcom will add new characters and content to the game, just as with past Street Fighter iterations. Additionally, if you care to purchase new content instead of earning it, you will be able purchase content individually, and ignore the items you don’t want.
