Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Heroes and Heralds mode will have multiplayer

The Post-Gazette sat down with Capcom's Ryan McDougall to discuss Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (UMvC3).

McDougall talked about what options will be available to gamers when they enter Heroes and Hearlds mode. The mode was introduced last month at this year's New York Comic-Con.

He also revealed that Heroes and Heralds will be playable both online and offline. But how will that play out?

McDougall explains:

"Heroes and Heralds mode is playable both online and offline. Playing online, you will compete in a weekly war between factions, and every battle counts. That mode is definitely multiplayer, and every online match you win will be rewarded with a new ability card. The offline mode has a bit of a territory-conquest vibe to it, where you’ll be fighting for control over different factions on a map in a single-player campaign."
You can dive into Heroes and Heralds mode sometime after UMvC3 hits stores Nov. 15, 2011.
