Most characters are unlocked simply by progressing through the story in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3, however, some must be unlocked by completing the challenging Infinity Trials. Alternate costumes are also earned by doing Trials. Here’s everything you need to know about Infinity Trials and which characters and costumes they unlock.
Watch the video above for a quick rundown!
Infinity Trials are an extra set of challenges you’ll begin to unlock very early on in Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order. You’ll find your first one during Chapter 2 – The Raft after the first boss fight.
You’ll continue unlocking Trials as you play through the story, but occasionally, you’ll need to play through adjacent trials on the grid before you can access them.
How Earning Stars Work
Completing a Trial will earn you one star, and completing the sub-missions will earn you one additional each, for a total of three stars per trial. Once enough stars are earned, the rewards listed on the left will unlock automatically.

Infinity Trials Tips
First, absolutely pay attention to the text below a trial’s main goal. For example, here, it says Abilities and Synergies deal more damage, but other attacks deal reduced damage. Based on this, I built a team with a high Energy stat and good AOEs so I could spam Abilities.
However, even though getting A rank became easy with this team composition, completing this Trial under a minute, which was a star requirement, eluded me until I was twice the recommended level and added in a co-op partner. And though this team – now at Level 14 – romped the Ability Trial, they performed absolutely dismally in the Level 8 Wave trial.
Basically, pay very close attention to what the trial calls for and build a team specifically to accomplish that goal. I changed my team to tanky, strong heavy-hitters and then cleared this Wave trial with ease – even though they were seven levels below the Ability team.
For help with team composition, check the Tips page within the System menu to read information about Stats. And remember you can always cycle through team bonus info by pressing L. Lastly, remember to use the Lab – Alliance Enhancement as you’re acquiring all of these credits by completing trials to power up your Alliance.
