Street Fighter 5's new DLC, which was due to release early next week has been pushed to next month. But the good news is the much awaited game is filled with new surprises including new story mode costumes, new game modes, extra fights and new looks for the characters.
Capcom gave a preview of the upcoming additions to SF5 fans in Japan and posted on its blog for its global fans. The story mode goes deeper into understanding every player in the game. But before the gamers unlock the respective costume for each player for purchase from the in-game store, they are required to complete each character story, especially in the story mode.
As detailed in the Capcom blog, the game has three modes: survival, challenge and story, with levels and sub-modes. Survival has four course levels namely easy, normal, hard, and hell for each of the 16 characters. Completion of every course unlocks new colour schemes and titles. In the survival mode, players can carry over the health and EX Gauge between each match against the CPU. "You are able to earn points with each victory, which can in turn be used to purchase special power-ups, such as health or attack or defence to help you last longer," explains the blog post.
The best of all comes in the third mode, where every character gets an additional outfit. The four sub-modes within the challenge mode include battle tips, trials, targets and extra battles. The first two sub-modes will be released in March 2016.
• Battle Tips: Learn the ins and outs of Street Fighter V through helpful demonstration and tutorial content. Contains content for each of the 16 characters, as well as advice geared towards all levels of players
• Trials: Put your skills to the ultimate test with combo trials for all 16 characters, ranging from basic to pro combos
• Targets: Complete daily renewing goals to earn fight money, in-game titles, and other cool content
• Extra Battle: Fight against special CPU bosses in the ultimate challenge. Earn in-game rewards upon completion
Capcom is increasing the player support count for online lobbies from two to eight and has included a new Spectator with the March release.
