X may not be here to give it to ya, but Capcom does with their latest iteration of Street Fighter with cross platform play and their first introduction of Fight Money which can be used for getting DLC characters for FREE.
As you play the game through the currently available modes such as Ranked Match, Survival, and Story Mode, you will earn what is called Fight Money. Fight Money is an in game currency similar to IP or Influence Points in League of Legends. With that being said you can use the Fight Money you earn from playing those game modes to buy the upcoming DLC characters, and some of the costumes in the game without having to break the real bank.
In the free March update, Story mode will be upgraded with real cinematics, and a longer story mode for each individual character, increasing the online lobby size for "Fighting Lounge" where you can create your own room for randoms to join, or invite your friends to duke it out.
As it stands now, I believe you can only have a few people in your lounge, but as I said it will be updated in March. Also coming in the March update will be returning character Alex from SFIII, the Shop where you can use your Fight Money to purchase him, story mode costumes, upcoming DLC characters and more. If you thought that was all that was coming in March, there's more, so get ready for Challenges to be added too.
Challenges are the games new daily system that gives you "quests" that reward a lot of Fight Money on completion so you don't have to grind out Fight Money as much.
Currently the story mode is short, and from most of the media's reception leaves much to be desired, but the real meat of the game is the Online Gameplay. With the online gameplay which is really something to behold you'll find that the game plays almost as good as it does offline with no noticeable input lag (unless you have awful internet or are playing against someone who does) and now has more more competitive ranking mode.
You receive what is called League Points (LP) for each win you receive in Ranked Mode and are placed in different divisions based on your placement. The first rank which is Bronze is available at 500LP, Super Bronze is 1000LP and so on. When you lose in Ranked mode you still receive fight money, but you do lose a very small amount of LP.
Survival is the closest thing available for those who want something similar to Arcade Mode, as the game was never announced with an Arcade Mode, but I don't care about single player in Fighting Games so I won't take points off for that.
In conclusion, if you actually like fighting games or are looking to learn how to play them, I highly recommend SFV aside from all of the heat it is catching for not having a lot of single player content.
This game is a great introduction to fighting games and for those of all skill levels. While the game may lack content currently, aside from premium costumes, it's all going to be free to earn. I can't express enough how great it is that Capcom is not pulling any of the 200+ costumes for $4 or charging you for on-disk DLC.
I purchased the game on PC for $45.00 through G2A.com, and feel like I got quite a deal.
