When Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite was announced at PlayStation Experience 2016, we called upon players around the world to form teams of intergalactic heroes, world warriors, and peacekeeping robots. We’ve enjoyed seeing the amount of creativity exhibited by the community and look forward to more awe-inspiring plays. With the one-year anniversary of the announcement coming up, we have decided to invite more heroes to play Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite with another Free Versus Mode Demo Weekend from December 8 to December 11!
If you’re new to the game, Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is a fighting game where players select a team of two iconic characters to bring into battle. You’ll also choose one of six Infinity Stones, which all have unique abilities, to further customize your team to your liking. If you have ever wanted to witness Gamora and Rocket Raccoon taking on Ryu and Chun-Li, this game is definitely for you!
Who can participate?
Only PlayStation Plus members have access to the Free Versus Mode Demo Weekend, and only on PlayStation 4. You’ll be able to play against anyone who already owns a copy of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite on PlayStation 4 along with any PS Plus member.

Venom, Black Widow, and Winter Soldier Out Now
Speaking of characters, the next three DLC characters, Venom, Black Widow, and Winter Soldier, have now infiltrated Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite and are available for purchase individually or as part of the 2017 Character Pass. Both purchase options will come with Premium Costumes as pictured below.
This Anti-Venom Costume was inspired by an Amazing Spider-Man comic story, which featured remnants of the symbiote forming a new healing version of Venom, which Eddie Brock fully controlled.
This Cosmonaut Costume was inspired by the Black Widow: Deadly Origin comic book miniseries. In a universe with heroes hailing from different planets, this intergalactic suit for Black Widow will be a life saver.
This James Barnes Costume reflects Bucky’s time in training before he became the Winter Soldier.
