Capcom has just released a new patch for Street Fighter 5. According to the Japanese company, this update brings a number of netcode improvements. Thus, players on both PC and PS4 should expect a better online experience.
Moreover, this update breaks compatibility with the previously released netcode mod for the PC. Whether the modder will be able to work around the new code so it can re-enable it remains to be seen.
Performance reports are mixed at this point. Some say that this official netcode patch has improved their online experience. Others say that the game was smoother with the netcode mod and that the game feels as laggy as the vanilla version.
As always, Steam will download this latest update the next time you launch its client. Capcom has not provided any release notes, so we can assume that it doesn’t feature any additional changes or tweaks.
Stay tuned for more!
