Hello, Illuminati members!

As promised, this month will be bringing our final Season 1 DLC character, hit the jump to check out Urien the “Dominating Light.”

First introduced in Street Fighter III: 2 nd Impact, Urien is the Vice President of Illuminati and wants nothing but to take over Illuminati from his older brother, Gill, and destroy Shadaloo. Urien has complete confidence in his own physicality and this elitism shows itself through his sadistic and tyrannical tendencies. He gains joy only from dominating others and having them crumble in the face of his incredible power.

Urien returns to Street Fighter V, donning a pinstriped suit and is often seen with a sinister smile when he hits opponents with his powerful limbs and violent combos. He uses his slow moving projectiles to pressure opponents and get them to do his bidding. A master of manipulating ki, his signature Aegis Reflector, one of the 66 Illuminati secret arts, is back and allows him to control the pace of the match.

What does Urien think of M. Bison’s latest Shadaloo activities and Operation C.H.A.I.N.S.? Be sure to check out the free story DLC “A Shadow Falls” to find out!

V-Skill: Metallic Aura

Urien laughs maniacally while enveloping his body with his Metallic Aura. Once charged, his skin tone darkens and the next forward-propelling special move can temporarily absorb one attack.

V-Trigger: Aegis Reflector

Urien opens his arms and creates an energy barrier in front of him. The barrier will reflect projectiles back at the opponent and the direction held when activating the V-Trigger determines where it appears. Opponents who touch the barrier without blocking will take damage and be knocked back. With a full V-meter, Urien can project two barriers.

 

Critical Art: Dominate Crush

Urien channels energy into his arm and slams it into the ground, striking his opponent with a pillar of destruction.

The release date for Urien and the rest of the previously-announced September updates will be shared at Tokyo Game Show (TGS) next week.

A future post closer to release will provide details for the rest of the update, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter . #RiseUp!
