Marvel vs Capcom


 

It’s no secret that Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite is angling to attract newcomers to the fighting game genre. Capcom built it with a deliberately straight-forward control scheme, company representatives have touted how approachable it is, and Capcom boss Stuart Turner even called the game “simplistic.”

Now, a press release has revealed one more aspect of the game that will make it suited for new players: a special Beginner’s League.

“[The Beginner’s League is a] special league fought between players of Rank 14 or lower,” the mode’s description reads (via EventHubs.com).

The press release doesn’t go into any more detail, but it seems pretty clear what the Beginner’s League is all about. Rather than having new players go up against veterans and getting stomped, these players will now have a chance to play in a league of their own to get the hang of PvP combat. This is separate from Casual Matches, which won’t affect rankings, and the regular Ranked Matches.

This also gives us a small clue at how the ranking system will work. Since Ranks 1-14 are considered beginner territory, it seems likely that we’ll see some pretty high numbers as players climb the rest of the ranks.

Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite releases September 19th for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
