The latest trailer for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite not only gives the first look at several of the more recently announced characters in battle, but another Infinity Stone takes center stage to show the power players can wield.

The Soul Stone’s abilities, as seen in the video below, are all about giving and taking precious life. The lower-tier Infinity Surge attack, Life Steal, allows the wielder to take health away from their opponent to give to themselves, while the higher-tier Infinity Storm ability, Revive Teammate, brings a fallen ally back to the fight. While reviving the alternate character is great on its own, the trailer also shows off that a player can control both characters simultaneously during a super attack, as seen through Jedah calling Dormammu back from the dead to help annihilate Ghost Rider.

As expected, flame based attacks are all the rage for Dormammu, Firebrand, and Ghost Rider. Taking a cue from Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion, Ghost Rider’s chain can snag enemies and send them crashing into the ground. Firebrand, on the other hand, sticks to aerial attacks like fireballs and sky drops. Dormammu’s super seems interesting this time around, as he summons a floor of flamed spikes that opponents can get dragged over. While the fast-paced action could be intense for new players, Infinite will have the recently revealed Beginner’s League to allow gamers fresh to the fighting series a chance to build their skills against fellow newbies, instead of having to go up against seasoned pros.

As a final tease, players who pre-order the standard edition of the game will receive the exclusive alternate costumes Warrior Thor and Evil Ryu. For those that want the full DLC experience, pre-ordering the deluxe edition will come with the additional Gladiator Hulk and Command Mission X costumes. It seems players hoping Marvel’s variant comic cover for Mighty Thor was teasing Jane Foster as an alternate Thor costume might have to wait longer for the possibility. Of course, Dormammu, Firebrand, and Ghost Rider were all revealed to be playable from the comics, so perhaps there’s still a chance Jane will be her own playable character as part of future DLC.

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