But we don't know if it's a timed event or a true free-to-play experience as yet.
Street Fighter V will go free-to-play to some extent in August, Capcom has today revealed.
The publisher confirmed that the original Street Fighter V launch roster alongside Season 3 characters would be free-to-play from 1 August on both PS4 and PC via Steam. It’s unclear if this change is permanent or simply part of a timed campaign.
“Starting August 1st, play the original Street Fighter V launch roster AND Season 3 characters… for FREE on PlayStation 4 and Steam,” a tweet from the game’s official account reads.
The free players include the following:
- M. Bison
- R. Mika
We’ll update this story as we learn more of the free-to-play functionality.
Street Fighter V is currently available on Windows PC and PS4.
