Street Fighter V base roster, Season 3 characters free from August


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:

  • Birdie
  • Cammy
  • Chun-Li
  • Dhalsim
  • F.A.N.G.
  • Karin
  • Ken
  • Laura
  • M. Bison

  • R. Mika
  • Rashid
  • Ryu
  • Vega
  • Zangief
  • Blanka
  • Cody
  • Falke

We’ll update this story as we learn more of the free-to-play functionality.
