Street Fighter 6 - Ultimate Fighting Game Launches With 92/100 on Metacritic [UPDATE]

Fans of fighting games can now take to Street Fighter 6. The game has hit consoles (including PS4) and personal computers, where it is destroying rival Tekken and Mortal Kombat in terms of player activity.

First post-release weekend of Street Fighter 6 on Steam was a huge success - at the hottest moment, the game was launched by more than 70 thousand gamers simultaneously. As many as 90% of the 3554 reviews on Valve's platform are positive. As a result, it broke the record of the second fighting game on the list of the most popular productions of its kind on PC - that is Mortal Kombat 11 - by a factor of two. Congratulations to Capcom on the excellent result!

The big day has finally arrived for fighting game fans, especially Street Fighter from Capcom. Street Fighter 6 is available today on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S.

  1. Street Fighter 6 offers three main game modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour and Battle Hub.
  2. There is no shortage of well-known fighters. There are Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Guile, among others.
  3. On Steam Street Fighter 6 is protected by the Denuvo anti-piracy system.

The story-driven World Tour mode is exceptionally interesting. Recall that it has the players create their own custom character and travel around the world, gaining experience in fights with the series' iconic fighters, as well as learning special techniques from them.

Street Fighter 6 collects very good reviews and sets records

Many editors have given the game high ratings. Let's add that on Metacritic the average rating of reviewers is currently 92/100, which is obviously an excellent score.

Street Fighter 6 has really hit the market hard. On Steam the current release day peak is up to 65,873 concurrent users - With such a result, Capcom's latest fightin game has swept away the competition (including recent installments of Tekken and Mortal Kombat). Users have so far issued nearly 430 reviews on Valve's platform, 81% of which are positive.
