Street Fighter V's massive 'A Shadow Falls' update is live

Audio player loading…

Street Fighter V (opens in new tab) patch 1.04, 'A Shadow Falls', is out now, bringing with it Cinematic Story Mode, two new characters, new stages, new costumes, matchmaking improvements and the in-game currency shop.

Strangely, however, the update comes in two parts. Steam ought to install the patch itself. However, the story mode has to be downloaded from the Steam Store (opens in new tab) separately, otherwise you'll see the story mode option in-game, but it'll be inaccessible. The patch plus the story mode totals a considerable 15.5GB.

Ibuki (opens in new tab) and Balrog (opens in new tab) are the two new faces, and you can test them out on the new Vegas and Kanzuki Family Private Beach stages.

As to the currency shop, Capcom has provided a price list, in both Fight Money and cash, allowing you to pre-emptively wince:

  • New Characters: (FM)100,000 | $5.99/€5.99/£4.99
  • New Stages: (FM)70,000 | $3.99/€3.99/£3.29
  • Alternate Stages: (FM)40,000 | $1.99/€1.99/£1.69
  • Story Costumes: (FM)40,000 | $1.99/€1.99/£1.69
