Capcom has announced that in addition to Windows support, they are going to have full Steam capabilities when Street Fighter V launches next year.

Also, the beta is now live today on PC and PS4, so have at it!

In related news, Capcom has also announced that SFV will be supporting Steam OS and that they are working closely with Valve on this endeavor. This includes the Steam Controller, and Steam OS support – so it can run on a Steam Machine without the need to stream. The footage doesn’t really show anything new but if you’re excited for the game and you’re getting ready for the new round of beta testing beginning soon, you’ll definitely appreciate it. You can check out the new footage right below.

Street Fighter V is expected to be released come February 16, 2016. The December beta offers players a roster of six characters on the first day: Ryu, Birdie, Cammy, Necalli, Nash, and Laura. Dhaslim and Zangief will follow at some point, and Capcom is teasing even more character possibilities for this beta. There’s no detail available regarding the Steam OS though but Capcom promises to keep fans up to speed.

During the third beta for the latest iteration of the long-running fighting game, players can try out the Steam Controller. The Japanese company revealed the playable characters and other content that will be available for players participating in the beta.

When the game is seen actually running on Steam OS it will be interesting to compare its performance to a normal PC setup.
