Street Fighter V has exclusively been released for the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC, the latest game in the renowned series offers cross-platform play that unites Street Fighter fans into a unified player base for the first time ever. In North America, the game is currently available physically and digitally on PlayStation 4 and as a digital download on Windows PC for $59.99. European consumers can purchase both platform releases at retail and digitally. For European pricing, please check local retailers.
The initial Street Fighter V purchase will be the only one that consumers need to make to ensure they always have the most up to date version of the title. A cinematic story expansion will be released in June 2016 as a free update and over the course of 2016 (and beyond) further gameplay content, costumes, new challenges and balance system updates will continually be made available to all players. For the first time in Street Fighter history, all of the post launch gameplay content will be earnable completely free of charge through completing various in-game challenges and receiving earned in-game currency, called Fight Money. For those who just can’t wait to unlock each piece of new content, content can also be obtained instantly using purchased in-game currency, called Zenny.
The first of the 2016 content updates will come in March, when the in-game store opens and adds a new World Warrior to the roster – Alex. Players who have played through the majority of the single player content at launch will have earned enough in-game Fight Money to be able to add Alex to their Street Fighter V rosters for no additional cost.
