PS4 fans were treated to a special free download to celebrate this weekend’s EVO tournament.
The Street Fighter 5 free trial is available from August 1 on PS4 and PC.
And unlike other free trials that usually only last weekends, fighting fans can try Street Fighter 5 for free until August 11th.
Street Fighter 5 free download includes the base game and all Season 3 content.
This includes returning characters like Sagat, Blanka, Cody, and Sakura, as well as new fighters like Falke and G.
As a bonus, fans can purchase Street Fighter 5 content at a discount for a limited time.
“If you like what you’re playing in the #SFV Free Trial, take advantage of these limited time offers on the full game and additional in-game content now!” Capcom explains.
The base game is just £7.39, while the Arcade Edition costs £15.99. Various costume packs and stages can also be purchased at a discount.
Street Fighter 5 is one of the main attractions of the latest EVO tournament.
Taking place August 2-4, the Evolution Championship Series (otherwise known as EVO) is the oldest tournament dedicated to beat-em-ups.
In addition to Street Fighter 5 Arcade Edition, the games also include Samurai Showdown, Soul Calibur 6, Tekken 7, and Mortal Kombat 11.
That’s in addition to Dragon Ball Fighterz, plus Super Smash Bros Ultimate and Blazblue Cross Tag Battle.
Video game publishers will also be using the event to make announcements, so expect to see new DLC characters and potentially even new game reveals.
Indeed, Capcom has already announced its intention to release three new DLC characters during the tournament.
E. Honda, Lucia, and Poison will all be available to download individually starting August 4.
The trio will be available for purchase as part of the Summer 2019 Character Pack the following day.
