Marvel Midnight Suns is a new tactical RPG that is set in the dark side of the Marvel Universe, where you face demonic forces of the underworld. In this new title, you team up with the Midnight Suns, AKA, Earth’s last line of defense. Viewers who tuned into Gamescom 2021 yesterday got to see the official reveal trailer for the game, where we were treated to some excellent visuals from the Firaxis team.
Midnight Suns is structured similarly to an XCOM game, however, it is quite different. The game features some big hitter Marvel heroes such as Dr. Strange, Magik, Iron Man, Wolverine, Ghost Rider (the Robbie Reyes version), Blade, Captain America, Nico Minoru, and Captain Marvel. As well as 12 playable comic book characters, Midnight Suns also has a create-a-character feature. The player will also take on the role of The Hunter, a new supernatural hero that can be customized both in terms of their moves and their overall appearance
What Is Midnight Suns?
It is worth pointing out that Midnight Suns is not a MArvel Skinned XCOM title, you aren’t an invisible sky commander and when you pick heroes to join you on your mission, they join your character – The Hunter. The Hunter is at the epicenter of the story with the main plot being to defeat Lilith, the mother of demons.
This RPG is a single-player, turn-based title but despite this, it still feels completely different from XCOM games.
Midnight Suns Release Date
