Guile joins the Street Fighter V roster tomorrow

Sonic Boom!

Guile is joining the cast of Street Fighter V tomorrow, Capcom has announced.

The military man will be available from 7pm PDT and will be free for all players, at least for a trial period before Capcom finally gets around to implementing its real-world currency “Zenny” shop. 

Here’s an overview of the character from Capcom:

In Street Fighter V, Guile retains his ability to dominate both the ground and air with his solid normal attacks and special moves, such as Sonic Boom and Somersault Kick. He also now has the ability to enter a crouch walk state called Faultless Move which allows him to keep his charge while moving forward, giving him even more options in his kit to keep his opponents in line. Guile is a great choice for those of you who are looking for a charge character who can easily control the pace of the match.

In addition to Guile, this month’s update includes Guile’s iconic “Air Force Base” stage, which is “free” for season pass holders and can be unlocked by everyone else for 70,000 Fight Money.

The update also includes matchmaking improvements as well as a new system that punishes players will high disconnect rates by locking them out of matchmaking for an unspecified period of time.
