Capcom has announced via its official blog that Street Fighter V will receive a Steam OS port, as well as support for the Steam controller.
There’s no word on whether the game’s Steam OS version will come out on the same day as the Windows and PlayStation 4 versions, but the fact that it’s getting Steam OS support at all is surprising enough. Capcom mentions that it is “working closely with Valve on this endeavor,” so hopefully the results will be better than the Steam OS ports we’ve seen thus far.
As well, you’ll be able to use your Steam controller to throw hadokens with mouse-like accuracy, starting right now in the current run of beta testing that ends tomorrow. Since the game supports cross-platform play between its Windows, PS4 and now Linux versions, it’ll be interesting to see how well the Steam controller players do against traditional controllers and arcade sticks.
Street Fighter V hits PS4, PC and Steam OS on February 16, 2016.
