Street Fighter V Patch 1.02 Is Finally Live, Adds Half Of March Update Content

Capcom has released the latest update for Street Fighter V after its launch this February. This new update will add half of the content that was promised in the March update including daily challenges.

While this is just first half of the update, it seems to have a rather hefty download size and requires more than 6 GB of update data to be downloaded on PS4. This makes the final update size around 6.6 GB for the full game.

Here is what is included in this new update for Street Fighter V.

This will be followed by another update on March 30th that will add the first new DLC character (Alex) and also toggle the in-game shop so that players can spend their hard earned fight money to buy new costumes and DLC characters.

Street Fighter V is available now for the PS4 and PC. It was developed and published by Capcom.
