While next week will prove to be the big content reveal players have been waiting months for, there's new things available to begin using now as well.

Following last night's server maintenance, Capcom updated Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition to Version 5.040 which adds in the new Capcom Pro Tour DLC along with some balance changes / bug fixes.

The big part of the new patch is of course the new Ring of Prosperity which sees Gill and his secret society bros observing from the background and the Champion's Choice Laura costume designed by iDom as part of the Premier Pass or to be purchased individually.

Four characters also saw adjustments in the new update for Ken, Cody, Lucia and Seth though they pretty much all amount to bug fixes for some odd interactions.

PC players also finally received their exclusive EX colors part of the 2016 and 2017 CPT Premier Pass which had already been part of the PS4 version.

You can check out the full patch notes for SF5's Version 5.040 update below.

Bug Fixes

• Fixed Replay Search timeouts that occurred when searching by Fighter ID. Fixed crashes that occurred when pressing F12 to take a screenshot. (Steam version only)

Battle Adjustments

Ken

• Ken's throw hurtbox was larger than other characters when taking damage while crouched. This allowed him to incorporate a throw into a combo more easily. Accordingly his throw hurtbox now matches the size of other characters'.

Cody

• Fixed an issue with Gentle Swing, Gentle Upper Swing, and Present Delivery attacks where if an opponent's projectile connected during hitstop, it would be canceled instead of reflected.

Lucia

• Fixed an issue where Flipper Shot and Firecracker could not be performed immediately after VT2 Weapon Fury's V-Timer ended.

Seth

• Fixed an issue where a successful forward Death Throw changed the opponent's position, causing their back charge time to reset. Charge times are now maintained.
