Now Playing: Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition - Mega Man And Roll Costumes Trailer

For those that haven't had the chance to play Street Fighter 5, the newest entry in Capcom's beloved fighting game series, an excellent opportunity to do so is approaching. Capcom has announced a free trial period beginning next week on PS4 and PC.

From April 23 to May 5, PS4 owners can get their hands on Street Fighter V at no cost. This includes all the content from the base game and the additional modes introduced in Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition. PS Plus isn't required to download and play the game offline, but PS4 owners will need a subscription if they wish to play online. PC players will need Steam to participate in the free trial. Downloads begin on April 23 at 9 AM PT.

All 16 original Street Fighter V characters--including Ryu, Ken, M. Bison, and Chun-Li--will be playable during the free trial period. Additionally, four DLC characters will be available: Akuma, Blanka, Juri, and Menat. Arcade, Versus, Challenges, and Training modes will all be available as well.

Along with the free trial, Capcom has announced costumes for Falke and M. Bison. Falke's costume, inspired by Katt from Breath of Fire II, will be available from May 10 to June 7. M. Bison's classic costume (unlockable via a chance visit with Menat after obtaining a Fantasy Fortune Reading) will be available between April 23 and June 15.
