Aside from the launch complications, the largest complaint many hold against Street Fighter V is the lack of offline content. Capcom designed the game as a purely online experience with only a minuscule offline story mode to give players the chance to traditionally play against the CPU.
A much deeper story mode has been promised to be delivered later in the summer, but Capcom has said nothing about a traditional Arcade Mode. Street Fighter V currently has no way to punch through a traditional eight, twelve, sixteen match set with a towering final villain waiting at the end. Players can’t even play a normal three rounds against the computer.
Fans are anxiously awaiting any news on its inclusion, and Capcom has responded in an interview with Forbes, stating:
“The team is looking into adding an Arcade Mode and we’ll have more information to share soon.”
Street Fighter V is available now for the PlayStation 4 and PC.
