Capcom has reassured players that issues regarding the Street Fighter V launch are being addressed. “We are making on-going improvements to stabilize the servers so that online connectivity problems and login errors will no longer occur” says Capcom.
Adding that additional content will be made available throughout 2016, with the first major update coming in March. Capcom has also assured players that the initial purchase of Street Fighter V is the only one you need to make to ensure you have the latest version of the game, as content including the additional characters and Cinematic Story Expansion (available in June, for those of you who want a more in-depth story based experience) is earnable for free. There will be no Super, Ultra, Hyper or Turbo additions, Street Fighter V is it.
The in-game store will open in March and Capcom has assured that all players who have been earning Fight Money from day one will then be able to cash that in for additional content. If you have completed all the single player content available at launch you will have enough Fight Money to receive the 17th character – Alex, for free.
Right now players are only able to invite one friend to play via the Battle Lounge, a decision that was made so that there is no further strain on the servers. Capcom have said this will be updated in March to allow players to expand their friend list.
