Street Fighter V will be the only disc you’ll ever need?


During Evo 2015, Capcom released more information about the upcoming release of Street Fighter V. Capcom made note that the game will be the only disc (or digital download) you will ever need, unlike previous versions which have seen multiple “upgrades” and new characters.

SFV will launch with 16 playable characters, with four of them being brand new characters and more coming post launch along with new game content. One huge change for the series is that all the content will be unlockable (which includes the new characters) by playing the game and earning fight money. If you want the characters right away, you can also purchase “Zenny” using real money and purchase the content individually.

With so many companies charging a premium for in-game content, it’s nice to see Capcom rewarding players with the chance to earn the content by playing. There is currently no information on pricing, but it’s a step in the right path that older players are used to earning their characters.

Street Fighter V will be available for PC and PlayStation 4 in 2016, with the Beta starting later this month.
