Street Fighter V received a significant update today, adding a new character, daily targets, and some long-awaited features. Urien, first and last seen in Street Fighter III, returns as the sixth post-launch character for the year, bringing his slow projectiles and hard shoulder charge. He’s downloadable for 100,000 in Fight Money or $5.99. Fortunately, it’s now easy to earn Fight Money with daily targets. These are time-limited trials that offer rewards ranging from 100 and 5,000 FM. These join two other additions, eagerly anticipated for months: environmental stage KOs for all launch levels and Versus CPU. Players no longer have to go through story or survival for solo play. Other changes include updated fighter profiles, live stat tracking, and Colors 3-10 on default. On the topic of customization, battle costumes for current DLC characters are now included with the Season Pass. Color bundles can also be purchased for ‘original default’ and ‘story’ packs ($4.99 each) and for DLC ‘character default’ and ‘story color’ packs ($1.99 each).
