Street Fighter V April update includes Guile

21 Apr 16

Capcom will be releasing a new update to Street Fighter V later this month. This new update adds Guile to the roster. 

Guile is one of the most recognisable characters in Street Fighter history and it's great to see him getting added in the fifth game. He will have his iconic Sonic Boom attack and will be free for all players until the Zeni Shop opens. He has his own story and trials modes too. 

Outside of Guile, the new update also adds other additions. The first DLC stage is being included and it's Guile's Air Force Base. You can purchase it for 70,000 Fight Money credits or it's available free for Season Pass holders. 

Aside from the usual matchmaking improvements and character balancing, the new Street Fighter V update will also punish rage quitters. People who quit fights online will be temporarily banned from online play.
