Street Fighter 5 launch times, also coming to Linux “this spring”

Street Fighter V launch times

Street Fighter V is set to release across most of the globe tomorrow (Wednesday if you’re based in Asia) on PC, with a Linux version lined up for springtime. Here’s exactly when you’ll be able to get your hands/fists on the latest entry to Capcom’s seminal fighter. 

Oh, and the game’s Character Introduction series is now complete, ending today with Chun Li. Check out the fighter with larger thighs than Roberto Carlos in action below.

Here’s our Street Fighter V PC port review.

Although forced to wait a little longer than the rest, Linux users will be pleased to know Street Fighter V is heading to SteamOS in the coming months.

“Attention Steam users and Street Fighter V players! Our development team is working closely with Valve engineers to bring the full Street Fighter V experience onto the SteamOS platform,” reads an update on the game’s Steam Community page. “This will be a free update to all Street Fighter V Steam players and will be released this Spring. More news will be shared soon, so stay tuned.”

As it stands, there’s sadly no mention of a version heading to Mac.

For everyone else, Street Fighter V will be playable in a matter of hours, and the original schedule has been revised. Here’s the new times:

  • Europe: Feb. 16 @0:00AM UK (UTC+00:00)
  • AUS/NZ: Feb. 16 @11:00AM Sydney (UTC+10:00)
  • Americas: Feb. 16 @0:00AM EST (Feb. 15@9:00PM PST)
  • Asia: Feb. 17 @2:00AM JST (UTC+09:00)

“EDIT: added UTC time zone for extra clarity,” reads the Steam update.

At the weekend, the super villain everyone loves to hate, and my personal favourite, M. Bison got the character intro treatment too:
