on December 19, 2016 10:04 PM

As previously announced, tomorrow, December 20th, Street Fighter V is getting a huge patch, marking the start of Season 2. We have known about the update for awhile, but Capcom has never disclosed the content of the update. Well today, it did.

As we already knew, the patch brings with it a DLC pack which will offer up holiday costumes and a holiday-themed version of the New York stage. The characters getting Holiday costumes include Juri, Zangief, Laura, Rainbow Mika, Ken, and Karen. Each premium holiday costume is priced at $3.99 USD and includes colors 1-10. The Holiday stage meanwhile will cost $1.99 USD or 40K Fight Money. If you don’t want to buy things individually, a Holiday bundle will also be offered that will include all the content for $19.99 USD. All of the Holiday content will only be available for a limited time ending January 17th.

The DLC offerings don’t end there though.  B-Boy and B-Girl costumes for Ryu and Chun-Li will also be on offer starting tomorrow. These costumes will cost $3.99 USD and include colors 1-10.

We also know that tomorrow will see the addition of Akuma, including his story, Nostalgia costumes, and Premium Battle.

Lastly, we also know that five additional characters will be added throughout 2017, and they can purchased individually upon release, or in advance as part of the season two season pass, which also grants you a free PS4 theme and free costumes for $29.99 USD.

But as mentioned above, Capcom did reveal some new details about the update as well. Here are some of those details.

Direct Input controller supported has added, which you’ll be able to find it in the Other Settings section of Options. Further, Via Battle Settings, you’ll now be able to select your preferred music in Training and Versus Modes, as well as Casual and Ranked matches. Fighter Profile radar charts have also been tweaked, and have received additional updates and fixes.

Notably, an updated rage quit system is being added. According to Capcom, the current rage quit system has resulted in significant decrease in rage quitting, but it hasn’t been enough. In addition to losing League Points, and being locked out of online matchmaking for a set of time,  players who frequently disconnect will now match up with other players who exhibit similar behavior. The same will apply for players who rarely disconnect: they will be matched up with other fellow honorable players. Further, the worst and most honorable players will now have a special icon displayed on their Fighter Profiles. Lastly, anytime a player disconnects during a match, he or she’s league points will be deducted as if it was a loss.

But there’s more. 92 pages more. It’s so much Capcom has made a whole PDF for it, which you can can download for yourself here.

Below, you can check out all the new DLC costumes:
