Coinciding with this weekend's fighting-game-filled festivities at Evo 2019, Street Fighter Vis running a free trial on PS4 and PC from August 1 through August 11. Along with the 16-character base roster, Capcom is also opening up the game's Season 3 crew: Sagat, Sakura, Cody, Falke, G, and Blanka.
The latter perk makes the free trial worth mentioning, as I have to imagine that most of us who were going to check out Street Fighter V, in general, would've done so by now. It's been around, y'know?
Still, from Capcom's point of view, the timing is a no-brainer – it's Evo weekend!
It's that time of year when we're all just that much more into fighting games. I can already feel it in the air. I can already see the upsets. I'm finding it tougher and tougher to keep up with Evo, but I'll always surrender my Sunday to the adrenaline-pumping finals. This year, Super Smash Bros. Ultimateis set to close out the event, so the Street Fighter Vfinals are happening early – they're at 12:00pm Pacific.
As for what Capcom will announce at Evo 2019, it won't be Street Fighter 6. Patience...
