One of Street Fighter‘s most iconic fighters is coming back for another round. Capcom has announced that Guile is headed to Street Fighter V. He’ll also be bringing his iconic Air Force Base stage with him.
Guile will be a free addition to those with Street Fighter V later this month. He’ll come with his own Trials and Character Story to conquer in the game. Here is how Capcom describes the new and improved Guile:
“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.”
Capcom also discussed their plans to fix a rampant rage quitting issue within the Street Fighter V online community. As of now, there are no punishments in place for those that quickly quit in the midst of losing bouts. Capcom states that the new system will work to “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.”
Capcom also mentioned that they are making tweaks to the overall matchmaking experience. They plan to loosen restrictions in finding opponents, which should lead to quicker connections within Battle Lounges.
