The next Street Fighter 5 DLC character has officially been announced. As you may have guessed by now, Guile will be joining the roster later this month.

This returning fighter will be available for free to everyone until the game's Zenny feature is implemented. Guile will come along with his own trials and story mode, and his battle costume which will be free for season pass holders.

Street Fighter 5 Guile trailer released

The official trailer for Street Fighter 5's Guile has been released.

In it, we get to see what the game's second DLC character can do. Being a classic and returning world warrior, Guile retains his trademark Sonic Boom and Flash Kick special moves this time around.

Not only does the trailer show those two attacks in action, but we also get to see some of Guile's new tricks at play, including his stationary projectile V-Skill and his crouch walk that allows him to keep his charge while moving forward.

Listen to Guile's Street Fighter 5 theme and watch his Sonic Hurricane Critical Art

A video just surfaced showcasing Guile's Street Fighter 5 Critical Art.

The SF veteran character has his Sonic Hurricane back, and it appears to be a charge based move. If this is indeed the case, this will be SF5's first charge Critical Art.

We saw our first glimpse of the American fighter earlier today, and hype only continues to build as we see more and more from him.

Guile's theme music may be the most popular theme in Street Fighter history, and we have his SF5 rendition to share with you as well. Guile is slated to drop some time this month, so players can expect him some time within the next two weeks.

Guile release and April update patch notes for Street Fighter 5; new character free until in-game shop launches

As we learned yesterday, the Guile patch for Street Fighter 5 will be dropping April 28th at 7 p.m. PSD, and Capcom Unity has just released the notes for said patch in their latest blog post.

The developers have addressed a number of bugs, such as the following issue for Ryu, M. Bison and clawless Vega:

Bug: After dishing out Ryu & Vega's (no claw) C. LP or M. Bison's C. LK, while doing a light attack rapid cancel at the absolute latest timing possible, if you input another action (V-Skill, Special Move, etc.) at the same time, if the opponent does an attack the "other action" will come out, and when the opponent does nothing, the rapid cancel attack will come out, creating a special option select.

Fix: Made the rapid cancel timing of said moves 1F shorter.

We'll also be getting an answer to rage quitting antics, as well as faster matchmaking speeds. You'll see the character specific bug adjustments below:

Street Fighter 5 reaches over 4,000 entrants at EVO 2016; numbers continue to rise up

Back in February, Street Fighter 5 broke the EVO tournament series entrant record for a single game a mere four days after registration opened up. Roughly two months later, it seems that Capcom's latest fighting title is showing no signs of stopping.

Yesterday, the official EVO Twitter account divulged information on Street Fighter 5's current entrant numbers. According to the tweet, the game has since reached over 4,000 registrants.

Street Fighter 5 isn't the only game that's doing well entrants-wise. Both Super Smash Bros. Wii U and Melee are have already surpassed 1,000 a piece, and Pokken Tournament -- which is making its EVO debut -- has also received over 1,000 entrants.

To get a better idea of how these number stack up to last year, check out the entrant numbers from EVO 2015 after the jump.

Survival Mode difficulty, online issues, Ken's banana hair... Gameranx lists their top 10 things Street Fighter 5 players hate

I'll preface this with a well deserved nod to Capcom's overall success with Street Fighter 5. It's carrying the franchise, and the fighting game genre, forward to levels the FGC hadn't dreamed of just a few short years ago.

That being said, the game isn't without its blemishes, and the Mean Girl in all of us loves throwing a bit of shade here and there.

The YouTube channel Gameranx has compiled a list of things they feel the community is most disapproving of when it comes to the latest Street Fighter game. Lists like these are fun to give a look through, and compare your own personal notes with.

After you give it watch, we'd like to hear whether or not you agree with any or all of it, but also we'd like to hear how threatening you feel any or all of these issues may be towards game's longevity. The video is light-hearted in nature, but does raise some potentially important topics of discussion.

'Guile is the first true defensive character [in SF5]; he's going to change the landscape' - Combofiend says Bison players shouldn't be afraid

Yahoo eSports recently got some hands-on time with Street Fighter 5's upcoming DLC fighter, Guile. In this interview, associate producer Peter "Combofiend" Rosas shared some interesting information about the next world warrior.

"Guile is the first true defensive character [in Street Fighter 5]," Combofiend explains. "I feel he is definitely going to change the landscape because he's going to make people play a little bit slower."

Back in Street Fighter 4, the Guile vs. M. Bison match up was heavily in the former's favor. When asked if current Bison mains should be afraid of the match up this time around, Rosas had this to say.

"No, not at all," Peter starts. "Bison has tools to counter Sonic Boom now. He has V-Skill (Psycho Reflect), and he also has his Diablo Dash so he can go through it. This is a different Bison for a different Guile."

You can check out the full interview below.
