How To Unlock Characters In Marvel vs Capcom Infinite
Developer Capcom has confirmed 12 more — than the out-of-the-gate playable 30 characters* — will be made available in two Marvel vs Capcom Infinite packs for $30 each, starting with a set through paid downloadable content titled “2017 Character Pass” OR as part of the “Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Deluxe Edition” & “Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Collector’s Edition” to get the first 6 DLC characters. These 2017 & 2018 sets get you 12 DLC characters total, which is expected to cost you $30 twice, so $60 in all extra on PlayStation Network / Xbox Live.
The first six of twelve DLC characters (adding up to make the fighting game’s total: 42 characters) will be available after the game’s launch, at an expected rate of 2 characters per month (October-December) for the remainder of 2017 after the September 19th, 2017 release.
To unlock these downloadable new characters, you have to buy both “2017 Character Pass” and “2018 Character Pass” and download each of the twelve characters once they are made available. Then they will appear as part of your character select screen roster. These character release dates are to be determined, so we’ll keep you updated on this page with announcements.

Unlockable Characters #1-6: Black Panther, Sigma, Venom, Winter Soldier, Monster Hunter (Female) & Black Widow
How To Unlock: The Deluxe and Collector’s Editions include the main game and a “2017 Character Pass”, which contains access to six all-new additional post-launch characters including Black Panther (Marvel), Sigma (main antagonist from Mega Man X), Venom (Spider-Man), Winter Soldier (Captain America), a female Monster Hunter, and Black Widow (Marvel). This “Season Pass” grants you access to all 6 additional DLC fighters as they get released over the October, November to December 2017 period; at a pace of two DLC characters per month in the above mentioned order.
Note: These 6 DLC characters were not included in the Marvel vs Capcom Infinite planning, therefore this is not on-disc DLC, since these characters reportedly did not go into development until after the full game went gold. Instead, we can expect them to treat downloadable characters just like the full fledged on-disc characters.
Here’s a video that shows the 6 2017 Character Pass DLC characters:

Which of the last 6 DLC character could be next to be announced? Amaterasu, Deadpool, Phoenix, Viewtiful Joe, and more obscure Marvel, Capcom or other guest characters? Who’s your favorite?
How To Unlock: So far 4 Alternate Characters* are playable as “Premium Costumes”, which transform characters from the existing roster into related characters with new appearance, moves, unique voices and dialogue. — At launch there are two editions of the game you can get that include all 4 Costumes: The Deluxe and Collector’s Editions.
To make the Costumes available, simply download these DLC costumes from your game system’s digital store. Then on the character select screen, choose your character and press left & right on the Costumes selection to change into an alt character outfit. Easy does it!
