Fan favourite Guile returns to Street Fighter V as latest DLC character


The next challenger in Street Fighter V’s DLC roster is approaching, and it’s flat-topped fan-favourite Guile.

If you’re a lover not a fighter, why not check out this list of the best co-op games for the PC?

Guile is the second Street Fighter V character to join the game post-release, and like precursor Alex, Guile will be free until the Zenny item store opens,at which point players will have to cough up real cash or earn enough in-game currency to play the characters.

If you’re in the US, he’ll be appearing at around 7pm PST. Don’t wait up if you’re in Europe though, there’s no specific date promised for his EU release, merely “soon”. In terms of how he plays? Capcom say he’ll remain a solid option for zoning people out both in the air and on the ground, but he now has a crouch walk state called Faultless Move which makes it look like he’s lazily creeping forwards to kick your ass in the name of truth, justice and the American way.

It’s about time he was added, I’ve been playing Street Fighter V badly since it launched and it doesn’t really feel like a Street Fighter game without Guile in there, with his outrageous hair cut and the tattoo of the American flag on his bicep. Welcome home Guile. We’ve missed you.
