Yesterday during Sony’s conference, Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite was shown. What we thought was just a cinematic trailer turned out to be the story demo for the game. As exciting as this was, it was even more exciting that the playable demo was available to download for free the same day. Available for PlayStation and Xbox, the story mode is the first of its kind for the franchise.
This new story mode puts players at the center of a fierce battle as heroes from both universes come together to stop Ultron Sigma, the combined form of the robotic villains Ultron and Sigma, from infecting all biological life on the newly-merged Marvel and Capcom worlds. With the future of their universe hanging in the balance, the heroes must seek aid from the Mad Titan Thanos, the most powerful villain in the Marvel Universe but will they be able to trust him? We’ll just have to wait and see.
Also, more playable characters have been added to the game Thanos, Gamora, Nova, Dr. Strange, Dante, Spencer, Zero, and Authur. Some of the locations where the game will take place are famous places between the Marvel and Capcom universes, but because of Ultron Sigma’s plans they’ve been merged together. These include areas such as “Knowmoon,” a combination of the celestial outpost Knowhere from the Marvel Universe and Third Moon from the Strider series, “Xgard,” a mixture of Thor’s homeland Asgard and Abel City from the Mega Man X series, and many more.
Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite will feature free-form 2v2 team battles integrated into a wide variety of exciting and accessible single player modes and rich multiplayer content for new players and longtime fans alike. In addition to the compelling cinematic story experience, single player Arcade, Training and Mission modes plus vast multiplayer offerings will provide memorable experiences and infinite gameplay possibilities for players of all skill levels. The use of powerful, game-changing Infinity Stones further deepens the customized gameplay and allows players to equip and unleash elemental in-game powers, such as Reality, Time, Power and Space.
We’ll be ready for the September 19th release when the game will be on PlayStation, Xbox, and PC. Check out Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite trailer.
