There’s no denying that Street Fighter V is having a rough launch period. Plagued by server problems, common bugs, and a long list of suggested fixes, fans have been clamoring for an update. Today, Capcom released more information about how it’s addressing these problems along with screenshots of Street Fighter V’s first DLC character.
March’s scheduled update still doesn’t have a set release date, but Capcom has illustrated the kinds of changes you can expect to see when it finally drops. Returning from Street Fighter III, the bombastic-grappler Alex will be purchasable with Fight Money that players have accrued since the launch of the game. You can buy extra content through Street Fighter V’s in-game shop, including future DLC characters and costumes seen in story mode.
Newcomers to Street Fighter V will finally be able to cut their teeth on the game’s Challenge mode, which has specific tutorial content for each character. There are beginner, intermediate, and advanced tiers of lessons that will teach players about combo potential, cross-ups, and more valuable techniques to level the playing field.
Included in the March update will be an online rematch option which allows you to play a 2/3 set in ranked matches as long as both players opt to go back into the ring. Also, Battle Lounge will expand from 2 person lobbies to a capacity of 8 people along with match spectating.
Capcom also promises to fix a host of bugs that are still in the game, but there’s no word on how the developer will handle Street Fighter V’s “rage quitting” problem. The current solution is for the player to record every instance of an opponent quitting moments before a loss, and sending it to Capcom.
