Update: Servers are now down for Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition for the scheduled maintenance period. They are scheduled to be back online at 4 p.m. PT, but we'll update this story if / when they are available once again early.

Street Fighter 5: Champion Edition is scheduled to be updated today as Capcom prepares to roll out both improvements to online matchmaking efficiency as well as the 2020 Capcom Pro Tour DLC bundle.

We do not currently know the particulars when it comes to the matchmaking update, but SF5 Executive Producer, Yoshinori Ono, promised more details at some point today.

This will serve as the second patch aimed at improving online play that Capcom has implemented this year as they rolled out a netcode update back in February.

The Pro Tour DLC content is very much in step with Capcom's annual practice of releasing similar content. The pack includes new Renaissance-themed costumes for Gill and Lucia, a new color for all 40 of the game's characters, five new titles for players to collect and display, two exclusive profile themes, and a bonus of 10,000 Fight Money.

Two bits of additional content in the form of a new CPT stage and 2019 Capcom Cup Champion, iDom's, special custom costume of choice (presumably for Laura) will come at a later date. Players who purchase the full pack now will get both items once they become available.

You'll be able to get the full bundle (including Champion's Choice and the new stage) for $19.99. Alternatively, you can purchase each item individually. We've included a small gallery of the CPT content below:
