October Update Injects a Little Halloween Spirit Into Street Fighter V

October 4, 2016Written by Michael Briers


Street Fighter V is getting in the Halloween spirit early.

From October 11, Capcom is rolling out a spooky content pack that comprises a total of seven costumes, while the brawler’s Russia stage will get a makeover to reflect the occasion. Oversized pumpkins, jack-o-lanterns, gravestones and zombie Cossack dancers are just some of the iconography on display and SFV players will be able to gain access to that haunted arena for $2/€2/£1.29 or 40K Fight Money, Street Fighter V’s in-game currency.

But what’s a Halloween update without some fancy dress? Capcom reports that each of the seven costume packs will retail for $4/€4/£3.29 from October 11, boasting ten colour variants which will soon become the norm for all premium DLC costumes henceforth. Expect this limited edition content to remain available right up until November 29, at which point the Halloween celebrations will be long behind us.

Street Fighter V‘s latest content pack will go live on Tuesday, October 11.
