The developer of XCOM, Firaxis Games, shared the first gameplay trailer for Marvel’s Midnight Suns, following its unveiling at Gamescom 2021.
In short, the title doesn’t work like the tactical games the studio is known for. Instead, you’ll select random cards from a deck and then activate their abilities, all explained in the trailers below.
Battles are fought in teams of three and Hunter will always be by your side. It can be fully customized (cosmetically and with new abilities and abilities), but it also provides a perspective outside of confrontations with those who want to take down the superhero task force.
When not fighting, you can explore a central area called the Abbey. Here you can interact with other characters, selecting dialogue options and strengthening your bonds with them, in order to unlock new powers for use in battle. You can also acquire new abilities for yourself on the mentioned base.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be released in March 2022 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC (Steam, Epic Games Store).
See below for an official description of Marvel’s Midnight Suns for more details.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a new tactical RPG set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe. Join — and live among — iconic heroes like Iron Man, Wolverine, Ghost Rider and Blade as you battle demonic forces to stop Lilith, the Mother of Demons, from resurrecting her master and starting the end of the world.
Pushed to the limit, Earth’s most powerful heroes join the Midnight Suns — Ghost Rider, Blade, Magik and Nico Minoru — to desperately revive Hunter, a legendary heroine and humanity’s only hope to stop the end of the world. As Hunter, you must rally your team, earn their trust and lead them to overcome their biggest challenge yet.
