SFV: Champion Edition Now Available on PS4 & Steam, Patch Notes


Capcom has posted the full notes for Street Fighter V: Champion Edition's day one release patch (version 5.012), showing overall battle adjustments and character specific changes. Below, take a look at the Ver. 5.012 patch notes along with a link to specific character changes on Capcom's official site. Alongside the launch of the game, new character and returning SFIV boss, Seth, is now playable in the "definitive version" of Street Fighter V

Battle Adjustments in Ver. 5.012

While mid-animation, taking damage at point-blank range used to result in the distance between both character models widening, but this issue has now been addressed.

Specifically, adjustments have been made to the following:

1)  Moves where the issue occurs between the start of the animation and the 5th frame. (For some moves where the character moves a significant distance, adjustments beyond the 5th frame were made.)

2)  Moves with a large collision box on recovery, where taking a hit while missing an attack/blocking does not result in both characters being at point-blank range afterwards.

3)  The first 2 frames of a back dash.

All moves described above have been adjusted.

Areas Affected by These Adjustments

Distance/situation after an attack varies according to the collision box and pushback on hit/block for each move. Fine adjustments have been made, but other value changes have been observed as a result. Adjustments were made to make attack hits/blocks/misses act closer to their original versions. However, the methods of applying said adjustments differs according to character and move, so in some cases move properties and post-move situations have been changed.

Regarding point 1) above ("Moves where the issue occurs between the start of the animation and the 5th frame"), it was felt that adjusting all actions would change things too drastically. Therefore, adjustments were limited to the places thought to be the most effective, i.e. point-blank attacking/defensive moves where the issue is most likely to occur.

Please see the adjustment list for a rundown of changes by character.

Street Fighter V: Champion Edition is now available on PS4 and Steam for $29.99. The game includes 40 characters, 34 stages and 200+ costumes.
