Street Fighter V Base Roster and Season 3 Free To Play For First Part of August

So let’s say you’ve been waiting to play Street Fighter V until some sort of trial period, when you could see what the bulk of the fighters have to offer for the game. Try before you buy, right? Well, it looks like that time is just around the corner.

Just in time for the start of EVO 2019 this weekend, Capcom has announced on the official Twitter Street Fighter account that it will unlock both the general base roster and the Season 3 roster of characters for Street Fighter V for free on both PlayStation 4 and Steam for a limited time. You’ll be able to play as all the characters in both rosters from August 1 through August 11. You can check out the promo tweet below, giving you an idea of what to expect!

Although not every character is unlocked in the game, there’s a pretty good portion that you’ll be able to play as. Here’s a good portion of who’s on hand.

  • Birdie
  • Cammy
  • Chun-Li
  • Dhalsim

  • Mika
  • Rashid
  • Ryu
  • Vega
