Street Fighter 6 gamers on PS5 are having difficulty accessing their deluxe and ultimate edition features… while some are unable to play at all.
Just hours after the game’s debut, users swarmed to the game’s subreddit and social media platforms, complaining that despite having purchased the fighter’s more expensive editions, the game was stubbornly blocking them from accessing the deluxe and ultimate editions’ DLC and features.
“There seems to be some kind of ongoing problem with either the PS5 deluxe and ultimate editions or DLC in general, posits one Reddit mod, linking to a possible workaround”.
If you’re experiencing a similar problem, gamers recommend restoring the licenses on your PSN profiles or, instead, try this “roundabout way” fix:
- Turn on your PS5, and log in to your account
- Download the “PS App” on a mobile device (if you haven’t already)
- Open the app, and log in to your PSN account
- On the main view, press the “Game Library” button at the bottom, and then select the SF6 icon
- On the SF6 view, there should be a “PS5 | Street Fighter 6 >” button – press that button
- You should be taken to a view with multiple versions of SF6. Scroll down to your Deluxe/Ultimate edition (should say “Purchased”), and select that version
- Once you selected it, press the “Play on Console” button
The poster says-
“If you’ve never used this feature before, it should prompt you to connect your PS5 to the phone app, Once that’s done, SF6 should automatically launch on your PS5, and you should receive all of the Deluxe/Ultimate edition bonuses.”
Although this appears to work for some, it appears that others, despite attempting similar recommendations, remain locked out of their deluxe edition.
What about certain gamers who are unable to access the game at all? It appears that a glitch is causing gamers to be told they haven’t installed any add-ons when they have, however, a reboot and/or double-checking to ensure you’ve downloaded both World Tour and Fighting Ground appears to assist the most.
At the time of writing, there has been no official statement from Capcom on what is causing the issues or when they will be repaired, however the prior issue with custom rooms appears to have been handled.
In case you missed it, Street Fighter 6 has more than doubled the all-time record for concurrent players set by its nearest fighting game competition in less than 24 hours of release.
Street Fighter 6 has already achieved a major all-time concurrent peak on Valve’s marketplace, with SteamCharts recording 70,540 players at the time of writing. The statistic is more than double that of its nearest rival, Mortal Kombat 11, which currently has an all-time high of 27,301 players.
Street Fighter 6’s concurrent peak is also far higher than that of its direct predecessor, Street Fighter 5, which hit an all-time high of 13,807 players on Steam, and it has also managed to outperform Tekken 7, which has an all-time top of 18,766 players.
