Loot boxes are coming to Street Fighter 5 on June 25 alongside other updates. These boxes, which you buy with "Fight Money" (which sounds like some kind of hand-drawn currency suburban dads earn in underground fight rings) contain rare costumes, artwork, and items to help you complete Street Fighter 5's improved Survival Mode.
Before you panic, know these loot boxes must be earned by grinding for Fight Money in-game. Also, they're not loot boxes in an absolute literal sense: Menat, Street Fighter 5's resident fortune teller, "tells your fortune" if you fork over 500 Fight Money. Your randomized rewards are within that fortune, which Menat deciphers. You're likely to find Battle Goods, which bolster your fighter's chances of getting through Survival Mode when they're consumed. Survival Mode pits you against a gauntlet of CPU-controlled fighters. If you and your Chosen One endure, you can unlock new colors for your fighters, new costumes, and other goodies.
Rare costumes—like Cammy's new Cannon Spike outfit—can only be earned through fortune readings. Capcom promises more rare costumes are on the way. A suggestion, Capcom: Laundry Day Ryu. Do it, you cowards!
Street Fighter 5 is available on PlayStation 5 and PC.
