As of today, ads will be displayed on Street Fighter V. Fortunately for users, they will have the option to turn it off; but on the flip side, they will also miss out on various incentives.
Capcom made the announcement late last week, letting gamers know that they will see "Sponsored Content" in the game which will be on by default.
As mentioned above, players will have the option of turning the ads off but will earn bonus fight money if they're kept on.
"Sponsored Content will be introduced into Street Fighter V: Arcade Edition on December 11th. Sponsored content will be displayed in several locations in-game to remind you about costumes, bundles, and the Capcom Pro Tour," Capcom announced.
"When Sponsored Content is enabled, players can obtain additional Fight Money in Ranked and Casual Matches – these bonuses come with an upper limit."
Players will see sponsored content in the places mentioned below:
Costumes: Ad Style - Every character will have an Ad Style costume where the sponsored content will appear somewhere on their clothing or model
Loading Ads - A sponsor will appear in the versus screen before a battle – this will not affect loading screen times
Stage Ads - Some tournament stages feature a sponsor like the Ring of Power
Providing that ads are enabled, users will see them in several places. Each Street Fighter character will have an "Ad Style" costume that displays sponsored content somewhere on their clothing. The image in the tweet above shows examples of Ryu and Balrog displaying sponsored content on their gear.
The ads will also appear on stages and on loading screens prior to a fight. However, Capcom has promised that loading times won't be affected.
Players who don't care to see ads can simply head to Battle Settings to fiddle with the options, but they will miss out on bonus fight money, of course.
In slightly better news, though, Capcom will let gamers have the new game as a free trial from December 11th to December 18th.
