To help maintain the excitement, the legendary fighters will be returning with the new update that Capcom released on Tuesday. A new DLC stage called "Skies of Honor" was added to "Street Fighter 5" and is again sure to bring the gamers something sizzling to talk about.

As the name suggests, the "Skies of Honor" stage is set on the wing of Rashid's private jet with the fighters battling in the clear weather skies of U.A.E in Dubai. Burj Al Arab and the Cayan Tower are just two of the numerous buildings and landmarks in Dubai which can be seen in the background.

Considering cinematic moving background throughout the fight, according to Gamespot, this might cause a bit of destruction for professional players. Perhaps, the stage might end up getting banned in high-profile tournaments just like the "Kanzuki Beach" stage.

"Take flight with Rashid when "Skies of Honor" stage comes to #SFV tomorrow for 70k FM/$3.99!", Street Fighter announced on their Twitter account.

According to Gamerant, some fans noted that when the game was first released, it was lacking many components. Perhaps the most controversial aspect was a lack of single player or arcade mode. While it's reasonable that Capcom needs to keep making a profit on "Street Fighter 5" through DLC, fans are pondering whether there will be any more content that will be added to the game for free like the patched-in Story Mode.

Two weeks prior to the release of the new "Skies of Honor" stage, the executive producer of "Street Fighter 5," Yoshinori Ono revealed a teaser video that featured the next character to join in the game. Akuma is coming to PlayStation Experience in a playable demo which takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center on December 3 and 4. The release date and price for Akuma is yet to be announced by Capcom.
