The upcoming update for "Street Fighter 5" at the end of the month will feature a new story mode called "A Shadow Falls," Capcom confirmed. The coming upgrade will let the fighting game players experience to play the not yet released six DLC characters for free.

'A Shadow Falls' Free Characters

According to Irish Examiner, the update includes the "Street Fighter 5" heroes that haven't been released yet without even buying it.

"Street Fighter 5" Alex and Guile are now available for free download while Ibuki is included in "A Shadow Falls" story mode.

This also means that "Street Fighter 5" players can now enjoy the rest of the three characters, Balrog, Urien and Juri before the expansion pack's official release.

But, Capcom cleared that Balrog, Urien and Juri are not yet available to play the tournament mode at this moment, but it can work as a "free preview of the characters."

It looks like Ibuki is the only one who can join the final tournament while the others are still in working progress.

The New Story Mode

Capcom revealed that the new "Street Fighter 5" story mode, "A Shadow Falls," lasts for about three to four hours that features five chapters between "Street Fighter 4" and "Street Fighter 3," Metro News reported.

After the players beat the "Street Fighter 5" story mode, an advanced difficulty level will unlock. The gamers then will have the privilege to earn Fight Money by playing the unlocked game.

However, Capcom's plan to release their own cash called Zenny to replace the real money is, unfortunately, canceled. 

The players, instead, could use PlayStation Store once again to purchase anything they need with the real-life currency.

Other game modes for "Street Fighter 5" that are also available for free are Extra Battle and Versus CPU. "Street Fighter 5" new story mode, "A Shadow Falls," update will come at the end of June. 

"This is the first time in franchise history that fans will be able to play through this type of cinematic experience in a 'Street Fighter game'," Capcom boasted, as per Tech Times.
