Street Fighter V update adds first DLC character, Alex

Street Fighter V (PC, PS4) Alex Launch Announcement - Screenshot 1

Street Fighter V’s first post-launch roster addition, Alex, is now downloadable. Returning from Street Fighter III, Alex is a hulking grappler that will set players back 100,000 in Fight Money. In addition, new story costumes have been added to the recently launched In-Game Shop that run 40,000 FM each. The in-game currency is earned as players go through the game. The real-world cash equivalent, Zenny, has yet to be implemented, so Alex will be available for a free trial period that will end once Zenny is implemented; at that point, players will need to purchase him (and any other DLC characters released by then) with Zenny or FM. An update earlier this week added several modes and features, including Demonstrations, Trials, Online Rematch for a 2/3 set, eight-person lobbies, and match spectating.
