After missing its original release target of  June, Capcom’s Street Fighter V Cinematic Story mode is available today. PlayStation 4 owners can pre-load the update, which will also add DLC characters Ibuki and Balrog, new costumes, matchmaking improvements, the in-game currency mode and two new stages; Karin’s Kanzuki Family Private Beach and Las Vegas.

When it was first announced, Yoshinori Ono revealed that the story mode would take anywhere from 1-2 hours to complete, and here is what we currently know about the story mode titled, “A Shadow Falls”.

The Street Fighter V cinematic story expansion is divided into five acts and takes place between Street Fighter IV and Street Fighter III, bridging the events that happen in between the two stories. “A Shadow Falls,” depicts the ultimate battle between the evil Shadaloo organization and the heroic World Warriors who rise up against them. As the story unfolds, players will enter battles using each of the core 16 characters, in addition to the 6 (released and unreleased) 2016 DLC characters, each with their own unique contribution to the epic clash. “A Shadow Falls” is free content available to all players and it marks the first time in franchise history that consumers will be able to play through this type of cinematic experience in a Street Fighter game. The epic battle between good and evil begins soon… who will RISE UP?

One of the biggest surprises of the story mode was the announcement that Juri and Urien would be playable in the story mode. It will give players a chance to try out the characters before their official release in August and September.
