Last week, we shared the news that Marvel Midnight Suns, a video game that will pit some of Marvel’s iconic heroes against demonic forces, will be reaching PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in March of 2022. The trailer for Marvel Midnight Suns can be seen above and now, as promised, the game’s developers at Firaxis Games have kicked off September by sharing gameplay video online. You can check that out in the embeds below.
A tactical role-playing game, Marvel Midnight Suns has the following description:
The world as we know it is changed forever when Hydra, through a procedure of magic and science, manages to revive Lilith, Mother of Demons. In an effort to prevent Lilith from spreading her armies across the world, destroying everything in her path, The Avengers enlist the Midnight Suns to assist in their battle. This team of supernaturally powered heroes will need to work with the likes of Captain America, Iron-Man and Captain Marvel if they want to stop Lilith from resurrected Chthon, her all-powerful master.
However, the powers of The Avengers and the Midnight Suns won’t be enough. Only the Hunter, the child of Lilith, is capable of slaying the Mother of Demons. This original character will be the player’s window into the world of Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Creating the Hunter from scratch, players will need to use their ancient abilities to gather and control their team, issuing commands on the battlefield and forging bonds during downtime, all in an effort to smite their evil mother.
Players will be able to design the Hunter “however they see fit”, from appearance to their variety of skills. Creative director Jake Solomon has said there are twelve Marvel heroes in the game, including Ghost Rider, Blade, Doctor Strange, Captain America, Iron Man, Wolverine, Magik, Captain Marvel, and Nico Minoru.
I have fond memories of reading the early ’90s Marvel Comics that Marvel Midnight Suns is drawing its inspiration from, so I think it’s awesome that this game exists.
