World Tour mode allows for a single-player adventure in Metro City, while the Battle Hub offers a social space for player interaction and competition. Fighting Ground is where players can experience arcade mode, training mode, ranked matches, and more.

    Moreover, players can experience a new level of combat with options for Classic, Modern, and Dynamic controls, and a new Drive Gauge system.

    Additionally, SF6 features a diverse roster of 18 characters, including classics and new faces, each with updated designs and dynamic cinematic specials. Capcom plans to add more new characters to the game so stay tuned for more announcements.

    Akuma releases alongside this upcoming patch, where players can fight against him in all three game modes: Fighting Ground, World Tour, and Battle Hub. As your master in World Tour, Akuma will have his own area where you can traverse and experience combat. The developers promise to announce Year 2 content and Battle Hub events later this year.
