Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite Adding 18 Premium Skins This Week
Capcom has announced new alternate costumes for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite which released last month. The costumes can be purchased individually, together, or in packs of six.
The latest installment of the Marvel vs. Capcom franchise takes players back to basics with two-on-two matches and offers a new gameplay mechanic that revolves around the Infinity Stones of the Marvel Universe. Introducing new characters to the franchise including Gamora, Captain Marvel, Ultron, and Jedah, the game features a base roster of 30 fighters. The 2017 Character Pass adds six more characters, each complete with their own premium costume. Black Panther, Sigma, and Monster Hunter were added on Friday, with Black Widow, Venom, and Winter Soldier expected to arrive later in the year.
Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will soon receive premium costumes for 18 characters from its base roster. The costumes will be divided up into three packs of six: “Avenging Army”, “World Warriors”, and “Mystic Masters.” Each pack will be available $11.99, while players can purchase all 18 for a price of $29.99. The skins can also be bought individually for $3.99.
“Avenging Army” features costumes for three classic Avengers (Iron Man, Hawkeye, and Thor.) Fans will be able to play as Hawkeye and Thor in their “Ultimate” costumes, and as Iron Man in his silver “Superior Iron Man” armor. Also included in the pack are skins for Arthur, Dante, and Spencer.
“World Warriors” puts Captain America in a medieval-inspired “Gladiator” outfit and returns Carol Danvers to her roots in her classic Warbird/Ms. Marvel costume which she wore for decades before taking up the mantle of Captain Marvel. The pack features a casual look for Chun-Li, a shirtless costume for Ryu, Chris Redfield’s classic appearance, and Hulk’s “Mr. Fixit” persona.
The third pack, “Mystic Masters” puts the focus on the game’s magical and supernatural characters, including Doctor Strange, Dormannu, Ghost Rider, Nemesis, Morrigan, and Firebrand.
A premium costume for Spider-Man is also available for purchase, but can be received for free by players who purchase the digital copy of Spider-Man: Homecoming for Playstation 4 or Xbox One.
The “World Warriors”, “Avenging Army”, and “Mystic Masters” premium skins for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite will be available tomorrow on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
