Street Fighter 6 players are struggling to access the Deluxe and Ultimate edition goodies on PS5…while others are struggling to play at all.
Just hours after the game’s release, players flocked to the game’s subreddit and social media channels, reporting that despite purchasing the more expensive editions of the fighter, the game stubbornly kept them from the DLCs and extras from the Deluxe and Ultimate edition excluded.
A hands-on introduction to Street Fighter 6, even if it’s from the open beta.
“There appears to be an ongoing issue with the PS5 Deluxe and Ultimate Edition, or DLC in general,” a Reddit mod posits, pointing to a possible workaround.”
If you’re having a similar issue, players are suggesting that you restore the licenses to your PSN profiles, or alternatively try this workaround:
Turn on your PS5 and log into your account. Download the “PS App” to a mobile device (if you haven’t already). Open the app and sign in to your PSN account. In the main view, press the “Games Library” button. below and then select the SF6 icon. In the SF6 view, there should be a PS5 | Street Fighter 6 > type – press this 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 have them selected, press the Play on Console button SF6 [PSN] Bought the deluxe version and only got the standard version

“If you’ve never used this feature before, you should be prompted to connect your PS5 to the phone app,” the poster reads. “Once that’s done, SF6 should automatically launch on your PS5 and you should get all the Deluxe/Ultimate Edition bonuses.”
While this works for some, it seems others continue to be locked out of their deluxe edition despite trying these suggestions.
And some players cannot access the game at all? It looks like an error is telling players they don’t have any addons installed if they have, but a reboot and/or double check to make sure you have both World Tour and Fighting Ground seem to help the most.
At the time of writing, there has been no formal communication from Capcom as to what is causing the issues or when they will be fixed, although the earlier custom room issue appears to have been resolved.
