Marvel Vs. Capcom: Infinite Reveals Winter Soldier, Black Widow & Venom, Demo Coming This Weekend

Capcom has released a new trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite, showing the three newest characters — Winter Soldier, Black Widow and Venom — in action. In addition, it revealed that a free demo will be coming this weekend (Nov. 24-27) for players who are still on the fence about picking the latest entry in the Vs. series up.

Here is the new trailer in question:

We already knew all three of these characters were coming, but it’s still nice to see them in action.

As evidenced from the trailer, Winter Soldier and Black Widow both share similar themes, with both their fighting style revolving around a mix of martial arts and firearms. For now, the core difference between them appears to be that Winter Soldier is slower and more strength-based (using his arm to block Nova’s Gravimetric Blaster, for example), while Black Widow is faster and relies more on movement/confusing opponents to open them up.

Meanwhile, Venom, as a returning character, has much of what we have come to expect of him based on previous entries. He’s hulking, intimidating and freakish, with the move-set to match. Unfortunately, his voice doesn’t really match his appearance and sounds more like what you would have expected out of Carnage. It’s a minor gripe though, as he still looks fantastic.

All three characters will be available on Dec.5 for $7.99 each, or you can purchase the Season Pass for $29.99 and get these three along with every other Season 1 DLC character, such as Black Panther, Sigma and Monster Hunter.

In addition to the trailer, Capcom revealed the Premium Costumes for the newcomers which can viewed here.

Lastly, as mentioned before, there will be a free demo this weekend for those who have yet to pick up the game. It will run from  Nov.24 8 a.m. PST/11 a.m. EST to Nov. 27at 8 a.m. PST/11 a.m. EST. and includes all 30 of the game’s launch characters.

Dec. 5 is shaping up to be a big day for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Not only are three new characters arriving, but it also the day a major patch is set to arrive which includes a Reality Stone (Infinity Surge) rework and several nerfs for two of the game’s strongest characters: Dante and Dormammu.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. Check out our review if you want to learn more about the game.
