Like its predecessors, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a fighting game in which players fight against each other using characters from both the Marvel Comics universe and Capcom’s video game franchises.
Infinite will feature two-on-two partner battles, similar to Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and earlier installments in the franchise. Unlike past entries, the game does not allow players to call in assist attacks; instead, characters can be immediately swapped at any point, including during the middle of a combo, similar to Street Fighter X Tekken. Similar to Marvel Super Heroes, Infinite will implement a gameplay mechanic involving the Infinity Stones, with each stone granting unique abilities. For example, the Power Stone grants increased strength, while the Time Stone increases the player’s maneuverability. Each player selects one Infinity Stone before the match begins, which grants one ability that can be activated at any time, and a second, stronger ability which has yet to be finalized. The game will also include a cinematic story mode; single-player modes, such as Training, Mission, and Arcade Mode; and online multiplayer with ranked and casual matches, global leaderboards, and online lobbies with spectating.
Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite will release worldwide sometime in 2017.
