Street Fighter 5 news: Story Mode costumes, Lara trailer, Survival and Challenge Modes

Capcom has released all the different Character Story Mode costumes for Street Fighter 5 and more on Survival and Challenge Modes. It has also released another Character Introduction video, starring Laura this time out.

Character Story Mode gives players a look at the background and motivations of each individual fighter. Since the stories take place in the past, their clothes are obviously different.

When each Character Story is completed, players will unlock the corresponding costume for purchase in the in-game store. A few screenshots of those are posted below. There are so many images of the costumes, we’re going to send you over to the Street Fighter Facebook page for a look at the entire bulk.

In Survival Mode, players’ health and EX Gauge will carry over to each AI match. Players will earn points with each win, and these points can be used to purchase special power ups, such as health or attack or defense increases.

Purchasing more power ups will reduce the overall score, so players will need to be discerning when choosing which power ups they want. Once the four difficulty levels of Survival Mode are cleared, new colors and in-game titles for the character will be earned.

Challenge Mode will consist of four sub-modes and each are designed to assist players with improving their skills and gameplay.

Here’s word from Capcom on that:

  • Battle Tips:  Learn the ins and outs of Street Fighter V through helpful demonstration and tutorial content. Contains content for each of the 16 characters, as well as advice geared towards all levels of players. – Available March 2016
  • Trials: Put your skills to the ultimate test with combo trials for all 16 characters, ranging from basic to pro combos. – Available March 2016
  • Targets: Complete daily renewing goals to earn fight money, in-game titles, and other cool content. – Available soon after launch.
  • Extra Battle: Fight against special CPU bosses in the ultimate challenge. Earn in-game rewards upon completion. – Available soon after launch.

Capcom also said Online Battle Lobbies will support two players at launch, but it plans to introduce eight person lobbies as well as Spectator mode into the game as part of the March 2016 update.

The firm also reiterated PS3 fight stick support and that Alex will be available to all Street Fighter 5 players in March 2016 as a downloadable character.

Most of the single-player launch content should provide players enough Fight Money to purchase Alex for free.

Finally, the company also released an image providing a character DLC release timeline which also confirms the previously announced Cinematic Story Expansion expected in June. It’s posted below with the costume screens.

Street Fighter 5 is out on February 16 for PS4 and PC and the street date has already been broken in parts of Europe and the Middle East.

There’s tons of Story Mode gameplay footage floating around because of this. If you don’t want to be surprised, AGB will send you to the YouTube channel.
