Street Fighter V Season 2 has now dropped and with it comes a huge number of balance changes and the new character, Akuma.
Capcom stated, "Akuma will be making his debut to Street Fighter V and is coming tomorrow alongside his Story, Premium Battle and Nostalgia costumes. If you want to make sure you're set for next year, the Season 2 Character Pass is available for purchase here, and will grant you with Akuma, five brand new fighters throughout the year, Premium Battle Costumes for each and an exclusive PS4 theme."
On top of a range of balance changes, Capcom have added a few new features and Quality of Life updates. Here is a breakdown of features.
- Direct Input controller support
We are happy to announce that Street Fighter V on Steam now officially supports Direct Input controllers. You’ll find this in the Other Settings section of Options.
- Background Music Select
In Battle Settings, you'll now be able to select your preferred music in Training and Versus Modes as well as Casual and Ranked matches.
- Fighter Profile Radar Charts
Additional updates and fixes have been implemented into Fighter Profiles.
- Updated Rage Quit System
The current Rage Quit System has resulted in a significant decrease in rage quitting. That said, we always planned to take this one step further and are ready to further address the issue with this update. In addition to losing League Points and being locked out of online matchmaking for a set time, the following additions have been made to the system.
