Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition will be on Free Trial starting April 23rd


Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition is going free for a limited time!

Capcom announced a few days ago that they’ll be holding a very special week for Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition (SFV). The game will go on a limited free trial run as well as a sale weekend on April 23. We’re also receiving new content.

Starting April 23 at 1 pm, PT (4 am, April 24, Philippine Time) up until May 6 at 5 pm UTC (1 am, May 7, Philippine Time), players will be able to play Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition for free on the PS4 and on Steam. A PlayStation Plus subscription is not required to download and play the game offline. It is, however, still required for online play.

All initial content from SFV and the new modes of Arcade Edition are included in the free trial run. Here are the download links for the game (do note that the free trial isn’t until April 23rd):

Apart from that, starting May 10 until June 7, Falke from SFV and Katt from Breath of Fire II is teaming up for a costume crossover, which players can access in Extra Battle Mode. As an added bonus, players can also acquire the Breath of Fire II background music during the same time.

That’s not all, M. Bison’s classic costume will make a return once again. The costume returns to Fighting Chance starting April 23 to June 15. Players who acquire a Fantasy Fortune Reading can pay Menat a visit to try and grab the classic costume.
