Streets of Rage Remake v5 comes bundled with the powerful 'SORMaker' tool, which basically allows you to edit and create your very own SOR games based on the SORRv5 engine! SORMaker is considered a level editor with the ability to create separate stories. Not only levels, but music can also be altered, cutscenes, and various other options. Ever wanted to create your own SOR game? Well, now's your chance!

To use SORMaker, simply run 'SoRMaker.exe' from your Streets of Rage Remake directory. Note: you must unlock it first, or simply use a savegame (See Cheats & Tips)!
