From August 1st until August 11th, you’ll be able to play Street Fighter V throughout the entire month for the low low price of free!
The free trial, available on both PlayStation 4 and Steam, will allow gamers to play as all of the game’s original launch roster and all of the season 3 characters.
The news was announced on Twitter along with a short trailer, which you can watch below.

The fighters you’ll be able to play as include Birdie, Cammy, Chun-Li, Dhalsim, F.A.N.G., Karin, Ken, Laura, M. Bison, Nash, Necalli, R. Mika, Rashid, Ryu, Vega, Zangief, Blanka, Cody, Falke, G, Sagat, and Sakura.
If you already own the game, you’ll be able to access all the named characters for free until the trial ends, whereupon you’ll be given the opportunity to purchase them.
Players will also have access to the character story modes and you’ll be able to earn the in-game currency. As with most demos and free trials, all progress you make can be imported over into the full version of Street Fighter V.
Capcom’s fifth entry in the iconic Street Fighter series hasn’t exactly met with the most positive reception since its release. A lack of launch features, the introduction of in-game currency, and in-game advertisements were some of the few issues people had with the game.
On the bright side, this trial is completely free! That means that you can give it a chance and you won’t be out of pocket if you end up disliking the game.
Street Fighter V will be free on PlayStation 4 and Steam between August 1st and August 11th.
