Capcom will release a major update for Street Fighter V on May 30 that’ll add a large number of new features and downloadable content to the game.
The big news is that the “Capcom Fighters Network,” Street Fighter V’s revamped online mulitplayer service, will be available on May 30. The CFN will feature faster loading times, matchmaking improvements, a “Rage Quit Penalty System,” and more. All players who sign in to the CFN by June 13 will receive 50,000 Fight Money, and you can learn more about all the improvements it’ll bring to the game at the Capcom-Unity blog.
A new character and a new stage will also be available to download alongside the May 30 update. Ed is a young commander in M. Bison’s army, and he’ll be available to download for $5.99 (or 100,000 Fight Money), or as part of the Season 2 Character Pass. Vega’s Spain stage, complete with a climbable fence, will also be available to download for $3.99 (or 70,000 Fight Money).
And speaking of Fight Money, Capcom will launch a series of new monthly Targets on May 30 for Street Fighter V players who also own the Capcom Pro Tour 2017 Premier Pass. Players with the skills to match these Targets will earn Fight Money to new unlock characters, stages, and costumes.
That’s all for now, but Capcom has many more updates planned for 2017, including three additional new characters.
