Street Fighter veteran Guile is coming to Street Fighter 5 this month. He's the fighting game's second downloadable add-on character, and he'll look very familiar to longtime fans of the series in his first gameplay trailer, which Capcom released today.

The new trailer also offers a peek at Street Fighter 5's first DLC stage, the Air Force Base. It too looks a lot like its Street Fighter 2 counterpart and includes a modernized version of Guile's theme.

Yesterday, Capcom revealed how Guile will play in Street Fighter 5. Here's the official description of his special moves:

V-Skill: Sonic Blade
Guile spins up sonic energy to create a Sonic Blade which acts as a stationary projectile that can also juice up his Sonic Booms. Sonic Blade can really help Guile pressure opponents on their wake-up or help him win projectile battles as it increases Sonic Boom durability.

V-Trigger: Solid Punch
Guile powers up and tosses out continuous Sonic Booms! Each button throws a Sonic Boom at a different speed, so mixing up between buttons can create interesting Sonic Boom sequences. Depending on the sequence used, this can act as a great combo extender, be used to overwhelm opponents or easily push his opponents to the corner.

Critical Art: Sonic Hurricane
Guile's most devastating attack, the Sonic Hurricane! Guile powers up and hits his opponent with a massive, multi-hit Sonic Boom. This Critical Art receives a damage and range boost while his V-Trigger is active.

Guile will be free for Street Fighter 5 players until Capcom updates the game to include the Zenny shop. Guile's home stage will be sold for 70,000 Fight Money. Street Fighter 5 season pass owners will receive the stage for free.
