Street Fighter V's Season 2 Patch Is Now Live

by Kyle Hilliard on Dec 19, 2016 at 11:55 AM

Update 12/20/16: The patch is now live on both PC and PlayStation 4. It's a rather hefty download (9.7GB on PC and 7.7GB on PlayStation 4), so make sure you download it ahead of time if you can.

Original Story: Tomorrow, Street Fighter V is getting a big patch. Much of its changes and content, however, have been a mystery until now.

First up, the things we did know. The patch comes with a DLC pack which will offer holiday costumes and stages for aprice. You can read more about the pack here. Tomorrow will also see the addition of Akuma and his story, Premium Battle, and Nostalgia costumes. Five additional characters will also be added to the roster throughout 2017, and they can be purchased in advance as part of the season two season pass, if you're so inclined.

Here are some of the upcoming additions/changes that were previously unknown, it bullet-point list form:

  • Direct Input controller support
  • Background Music Select
  • Fighter Profile Radar Charts
  • Updated Rage Quit System

Details of the new rage quit system circulated a few days ago. You can read about that here.

There are lots more balance tweaks and changes coming to specific characters, and rather than detail every single change on its blog, Capcom has created a PDF (which can be downloaded here) showing off the assorted character balancing tweaks.
