Street Fighter 5 has improved tremendously over the last few years, evolving into a premiere competitive fighter with a great roster of characters. If you’ve yet to try the game for yourself, you’ll have a chance to do so for a full two weeks, and the trial version features all 40 characters.
Discussed during the Japanese Fighting Game Publishers Roundtable, there will be a free-to-play version of Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition available starting on August 5. It will run for about two weeks and features all of the game’s characters. Because of this, you’ll be able to start learning who your favorites are instead of being limited to only a few before deciding on a purchase.
Street Fighter 5 took a different approach to updated releases than the series has in the past. Rather than force players to buy entirely new versions of the game like the Arcade or Championship editions, these are now available as free updates to existing owners. This keeps the community together, though the game has still never come to Xbox One.
Street Fighter 5 is playable on PS4 and PC, and it was far from the only fighting game that received news this weekend. Soulcalibur 6 will see a key character make a return, and Guilty Gear Strive was confirmed for a PS5 launch in 2021.
