Updated: Street Fighter 5 Season 2 balance changes are live. Upon finishing the update download, PlayStation 4 users can jump into the game (in offline mode) and access the new character changes. You will also see the updated menus and information about some of the new features.


Steam users can now access the pre-download as well. The update's file size comes in at 9.7 GB.

Earlier: Street Fighter 5's servers are currently down, making way for the large Season 2 update. Though they are expected to return online around 5 p.m. PDT / 8 p.m. EDT tonight, anxious fans can download the latest patch now, ahead of time, to prepare.

The 1.08 update for the game on PlayStation 4 comes in at a 7.655 GB file size. Though you won't be able to access the content right after this download finishes, it does allow you to get the waiting period out of the way before the servers come back.

You can see a few screenshots of the update on PS4 below.
