has unveiled the first look at Street Fighter V's next free DLC
fighter, Guile. The classic Airbase stage from SF2 will also be
returning in SFV as the game's first DLC stage. Check out the
official trailer, along with screenshots, artwork, and videos featuring Guile on his iconic stage. Also read
up on Guile's revamped moveset and new details on SFV's April update,
all while you
listen to Guile's new SFV theme!
(From PS.Blog) In Street Fighter V,
Guile retains his ability to dominate both the ground and air with his
solid normal attacks and special moves, such as Sonic Boom and Somersault
Kick. He also now has the ability to enter a crouch walk state called
Faultless Move which allows him to keep his charge while moving forward,
giving him even more options in his kit to keep his opponents in line.
Guile is a great choice for those of you who are looking for a charge
character who can easily control the pace of the match.
V-Skill: Sonic Blade
Guile spins up sonic
energy to create a Sonic Blade which acts as a stationary projectile that
can also juice up his Sonic Booms. Sonic Blade can really help Guile
pressure opponents on their wake-up or help him win projectile battles as
it increases Sonic Boom durability!
Guile powers up and
tosses out continuous Sonic Booms! Each button throws a Sonic Boom at a
different speed, so mixing up between buttons can create interesting Sonic
Boom sequences. Depending on the sequence
used, this can act as a great combo extender, be used to overwhelm
opponents, or easily push opponents to the corner.
Critical Art: Sonic
devastating attack, the Sonic Hurricane! Guile powers up and hits his
opponent with a massive, multi-hit Sonic Boom. This Critical Art receives
a damage and range boost while his V-Trigger is active.
Air Force Base Stage
SFV's first DLC
stage is none other than a series classic: Guile's Air Force Base. The F-16 receives a new
coat of paint and you'll probably recognize some familiar faces cheering
you on in the background. This stage will be available in the Shop for
70,000 FM. Season Pass holders will receive this stage for free as a thank
you for supporting Street Fighter V.
Rage Quit System
Next, Capcom will finally
be implementing a system to punish players who
frequently disconnect during matches (AKA rage quitters).
The way this will work is
the system will identify players who have high disconnect rates during
matches and will lock them out of matchmaking for a period of time.
Players who have been identified as abusing the system will receive an
in-game message notifying them they have been locked out of matchmaking. More additions and
enhancements to this system will be implemented in the future.
Capcom will also be making a
number of improvements to SFV's matchmaking. Many users
should have an easier time creating and connecting to Battle Lounges and
we are also loosening the restrictions on finding an opponent. We know
users in Europe and other parts of the world have experienced some issues
finding opponents and this should help increase the amount of battles
coming their way.
[UPDATE 4-27-2016] Capcom
announced that Guile will make his debut on April 28th (7pm PST/10pm EST)
in North America. Guile will Flash Kick his way to Europe a day later on
April 29th (2am GMT). While you wait, here's over 1 hour of SFV
Lastly, here's a preview of Guile's Street Fighter V theme.
