Street Fighter V Free Trial Kicks Off Tomorrow, Will Include 20 Fighters
Mortal Kombat 11 hit shelves tomorrow and it seems Capcom is looking to tap into some of the fighting game excitement going around by offering Street Fighter V for free for a limited time. The trial of SFV kicks off tomorrow (April 23), will run for just under two weeks until May 5, and include all the features found in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition and a solid 20 fighters.
Here’s the full rundown of everything included in the trial:
DLC Characters Unlocked – All 16 original characters included with the game are playable in the free trial, including classics like Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, M. Bison and more! As a bonus, four fan-favorite DLC characters will be available for free during this trial: Akuma, Blanka, Juri and Menat! These four characters will only be available in Ranked, Casual, Battle Lounge, Training, and Challenges.
For those of you who already own Street Fighter V and Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition but have not yet acquired Akuma, Blanka, Juri or Menat, these four characters will be unlocked to you during the free trial period as well. If you decide to purchase any of these characters during the trial, you keep any progress made with each character.
Arcade – This mode allows you to relive the past main entries in the series. If you’re able to defeat all the computer-controlled opponents under various conditions, you can unlock over 200 unique illustrations from multiple artists which can be viewed in the Gallery.
Versus – Play against another local player or against the computer with different difficulty levels.
Challenges – Learn how to use each character in Demonstrations and Trials or see how long you can fight in Survival Mode.
Training – Practice against a dummy AI as you test out set-ups, combos and get used to a character without the pressure of a real match.
Street Fighter V is yet another solid entry in Capcom’s storied franchise, so if you’ve been holding out these past couple years, you may as well jump on this trial. Assuming you’re not occupied with Mortal Kombat 11, that is.
Street Fighter V is available on PC and PS4.
