Capcom’s Street Fighter 5 Is Going Free-To-Play For Two Weeks
Plan on broadening your fighting game horizons? Look no further than Capcom’s Street Fighter 5, which is officially going free-to-play on Steam and PlayStation 4 for two weeks starting April 23rd. The developer has announced that the two week period begins tomorrow at 1 PM PT and will run until May 5th. This marks the second time Street Fighter 5 has received a free-to-play period, the first of which took place mid December of last year.
As players will have access to the Arcade Edition, they will be able to partake in Arcade Mode, Extra Battle and Team Battle. Full access is granted to the base game’s 16 character roster, though players can also test out DLC characters Akuma, Juri, Blanka, and Menta. That said, those four characters are only accessible during the two week period when playing in modes like Casual, Ranked, Training, Challenge and Battle Lounge.
