Capcom has revealed that the Heroes and Heralds pack, a free piece of DLC for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, will be made available on December 19.

The new mode involves picking a side - either Heroes or Heralds - and then scrapping to win character cards, which grant you special abilities when equipped. The latter include speed boosts, immunity from projectiles, and something called X Factor Blowback, which is probably a lot less seedy than it sounds.

There's also a new mode that lets you play as Galactus, the enormous (and thoroughly cheap) end-of-game boss.
