Champion Edition: (FAQs)
Q1: What is "SFV CE"?
    • As always, all game mode additions and balance updates are free for owners of any Street Fighter V version

    • All-new V-Skills (V-Skill 2) are being added for each character [Available Now]

    • Gill can be acquired separately starting in December, [Available Now]
        Or bundled with Street Fighter V: Champion Edition in February 2020

    • All DLC characters can still be purchased separately or earned free-of-charge by completing various in-game challenges and receiving Fight Money

Q2: I already have SFV or SFVAE, how do I get CE?
    A: If you already have the base game, or AE, just relax and watch the FREE update download come Feburary 2020.

Q3: What if I don't own the base game?
    A: You can pre-order or purchase CE like any normal game. You can wait for it to release, and buy the game then. Or get the base game + Upgrade kit pre-order now

Q4: Do I get anything special if I purchase CE Upgrade Kit, instead of downloading the free patch for the base game?
    A: Yes, you get a code with to unlock characters from:
    Seasons 1, Season 2, Season 3, and Season 4.

    (basically it's a rebrand of the current Arcade Deluxe Edition of SFV but with even more new content, and updates)

Q5: Ok, I want to upgrade. So what about the past DLC characters from SFVAE?
    A: If you have them, you keep them. If you don't have them, then you better unlock Fight Money, or buy the Upgrade Kit to get everything

Q6: I saw Gill and Fem-Seth, are they part of CE?
    A: Yes. Both Gill and Seth are part of CE. Gill is available now, and Seth comes in mid February. Though currently it's unknown how they will handle "Character Pass" DLC this time around, we don't know how many characters will be added after CE launches. But like always, future new characters are "extra content" that can be unlocked for free with Fight Money, or purchased as a bundle.

Q7: You said "Fight Money" before, what is that?
    A: Fight Money (FM) is the earn-able in-game currency that allows you to unlock DLC characters for FREE, (obviously meaning that there is no monetary cost, just play the game and complete challenges and unlock characters without paying a dime more)

Q8: Is there a pre-order bonus?
    A: Yes, Preorder bonus content:If you pre-order, you'll receive a new color for each character, which will be redeemable at launch and a special wallpaper. (content will be available at time of purchase for steam users)

Q9: What about Capcom's promise not to re-release this game as a new version?
    A: Capcom never made that promise, ever. People misunderstood the "actual" promise they made which was "One disk to rule them all" which means you only need 1 copy of the game to stay up to date, and in the same player pool, no more fracturing the playerbase between versions.


Q10: How do we earn FM in AE?

Q11: What about my old mods?

Q12: Is any content not included CE
  • A: Yes, both the "CE retail" and "CE upgrade kit" excludes Fighting Chance costumes, brand collaboration costumes and Capcom Pro Tour DLC.

Q13: If I pre-order the Championship Edition Upgrade Kit now, do I have to wait until Feburary for the past DLC to unlock?
  • No, the previous DLC packs unlock instantly when you purchase the Upgrade Kit.

Q14: What connection type is recommend to play online?
  • Ethernet wired connection, because this is a 2D style fighting game, it's one of the fastest paced genres that exist. The slightest bit of lag will disrupt the flow of the match. Wi-Fi, by design, is not able to handle this genre well.

SFVCE upgrade kit (or stand alone version in February) it really is a robust content package! Only stuff from CPT and Fighting Chance are excluded.

Point me to such a user, and I will.

When you put out a new box, with new box art, a new label, and a new disc inside of it, that's a rerelease. They did it with Arcade Edition, and since they show the box art at the end of the Champion Edition announcement, one can only assume they're doing it again.
This is exactly the same thing they did with Arcade Edition.

That part you seem to understand.

Originally posted by zoiks:
Is it required to play with players of previous editions? Nope.
Is it required to play all of the available gameplay? Nope.
Is it the same release, the same disc? Nope.
The last statement is false.

This is the same disc (for those who have the original SFV disc, you don't need to buy a new disc. You can buy the upgrade kit and get the same exact DLC content and people who bought the new Champion Edition disc)

There's really no reason to propagandize here, to my knowledge you don't work for Capcom, and doing so doesn't make Capcom look more honest. That ship sailed when Ono said Super Street Fighter 4 was the final edition of the game, then promptly made Arcade Edition followed by Ultra.
There's nothing dishonest here, Capcom said you only need 1 SFV disc.

That disc can be the original SFV, it could be SFVAE, or it could be SFVCE
Any SFV disc is all you need to continue playing the most up to date version of the game.

The different discs are for choosing how much DLC you want bundled in your purchase.

Check the sources in the first post.

Characters have always been unlockable via Fight Money since the game launched, they're not changing that.

And if you don't wish to grind for FM, you can buy character bundle DLC packs to get the characters that way instead.

I believe this is true, yes.

But Gill will be out in December 2019, and the new Champion Edition content won't be available until 2020 in February.

I wasn't asserting that there are more characters besides Gill, I was stating the general policy Capcom uses for SFV regarding new content.

New characters are always unlockable with FM or purchasable in bundles, It wasn't stating any confirmation about a plurality of new characters for SFV: CE.

Though it stands to reason there would be more new characters, Seth is rumored to also be coming, but there's no confirmation on that yet.

Are they bringing back CPU vs CPU?
DUKAPb Nov 18, 2019 @ 1:37am 
I do not understand. I need to get 1 000 000 FM for last achievement. Can I get it after new update or it will be like "broken achievement" ?

Achievements and progress will carry over just like normal.

I would say farming for FM is hardly a free of charge, but I got your point.

What lengths would that "dedicated" player have to go to, and how long would it take them to earn all gameplay related content? Without more information "dedicated" could mean "treat the game like a full-time job for a year or more." And in order for that quote to be accurate currently for a new player, it would mean that or something even more ridiculous.

This is the same disc (for those who have the original SFV disc, you don't need to buy a new disc. You can buy the upgrade kit and get the same exact DLC content and people who bought the new Champion Edition disc)

You didn't need to buy a new disc for SSF4:AE or USF4, they were also available as DLC. It'd been 5 years since they'd actually required players buy another physical disc when they made that "one disc" statement, and in fact SSF4 was the only time they'd done that with SF4. And it was the #1 selling point for their SFV as a service strategy...

There's nothing dishonest here, Capcom said you only need 1 SFV disc.

That disc can be the original SFV, it could be SFVAE, or it could be SFVCE
Any SFV disc is all you need to continue playing the most up to date version of the game.

The different discs are for choosing how much DLC you want bundled in your purchase.

It's misleading, because how many people aren't going to take it to mean there wouldn't be rereleases ala SF4? In fact multiple media outlets took it to mean just that, RPS used "No Ultra, No Turbo: Street Fighter V Is The Only SFV" as the title for their article on that panel. Gamespot wrote "Capcom takes a wildly different approach to post-launch updates for the new Street Fighter"... Wildly different? You can sum it up with one sentence, you will be able to play with others who own previous editions.

Don't get me wrong, I certainly appreciate that change, but if that's all it really meant, then why say "you only need one disc" instead of saying the above?

And no, so you could play the most up to date version wasn't part of that first point, because that was actually their #2 selling point. I like to think Capcom wasn't so incompetent that they forgot what they just said so they said it again just in case. They tend to wait a couple years, then "forget" what they said.

That quote is accurate regardless of how much time it would take.

They broke the FM system, and earning content is really hard now, but the difficulty doesn't impact the truth of the statement.

SSF4 wasn't tho

SSF4 is when the split the player pool.

SSF4: AE split the player pool as well, but allowed users to enable backward compatibility to play with users who didn't have AE.

None of that is needed now for SFV, there is no need for users to have to enable "backward compatibility", because with SFV, only one disc is needed, and we're all playing the same version of the game.

Nope, they split the player pool with MvC3 as well.

So you BET this one disc policy was a selling point of SFV, because it wasn't a normalized function, and is something their competitors weren't even doing yet either.

It's only misleading to illiterates.
(yes, any media outlet that misreported that are included in that statement)

There was nothing confusing about that when it was stated, the only people who didn't understand it were people who never read capcom's statement.

They were very clear in stating that any upgrades or hypothetical title changes, you would only need 1 disc.

And yes "wildly different" because the new entries of SFIV required users to enable backward compatibility to play with users on the older version of the game. MvC3 didn't even have such a feature, you needed a new disc for that too.

Originally posted by zoiks:

Because it's true, and it most simply conveys what you need to continue playing with everyone.

They're the same selling point, they mean the same thing, you only need 1 disc because all updates are free.

They're not "forgetting" what they said, they're just reiterating the same statements over and over because people cant seem to understand simple things.

Mods, Pin request.

About the costumes/cosmetics and stages advertised on the trailer:

If I own every season passes and characters until now, the most viable option is to wait for the free update.
But considering this situation, will those stages and costumes be also included for free? Or do I have to buy the upgrade to have access to it?
