Street Fighter V fans, rejoice! Capcom has rolled out the game’s in-game shop and Alex as a free update! While a new free fighter is always welcome, it seems it’s for a trial period only according to Capcom.
Since the In-Game Shop for real currency (aka Zenny) is not available just yet, we’re offering Alex as a free trial period to all players, until the Zenny shop launches. This also applies to any future DLC character that releases prior to the Zenny shop launching. Once the Zenny shop launches, the free trial for DLC characters that released prior to the Zenny shop opening will end, and you’ll need to use Fight Money, Zenny, or the Season Pass to access those characters.
You can check out Alex’s moves in SFV in the character video above. Don’t forget, even if Zenny can’t be used for now, the currency you can earn in-game (Fight Money) will let you spend it on extra characters, Story mode costumes and according to Capcom, “additional items in the future.”
Anyone tried Alex yet? Has Capcom done a good job of balancing him with the rest of the cast?
