Capcom will roll out a new update for Street Fighter 5 on Aug. 16 aimed at reducing the number of "rage quitters" in online matches.

The August update will penalize players who leave matches early by docking them League Points and locking them out of online matches for an unspecified amount of time.

"Since the initial Rage Quitting system rollout, we have seen a rapid decrease in rage quitting players, and we believe that this new update will reduce that number even further," the company said in a post on Capcom Unity. "That being said, we’re still working on implementing a new, more robust system that will address the issue more completely by early next year."

In September, Capcom plans to roll out another update that will add a "VS CPU" option, daily challenges that will earn players Fight Money and fighter profile updates. The company will also give players the ability to purchase costume colors, which were locked behind Street Fighter 5’s grueling survival mode.

Players will also have a chance to earn more Fight Money in September. Capcom will hold a double Fight Money weekend Sept. 2-4.

Capcom doesn’t when Urien, the sixth and last remaining confirmed DLC fighter, will be available for Street Fighter 5 players.
