Marvel’s Midnight Suns are looking to be something interesting that will come out of Marvel’s gaming universe. As we know the game is developed by Firaxis and will not be Marvel’s XCOM.
The game has unique gameplay mechanics, which rewards clever thinking with superhero flair through a card system. This particular card system is similar to rogue sites that use card abilities.
Coming to the combat gameplay of the game we have confirmation that it will be a cinematic tactical affair in which the player controls teams of three characters while handed abilities at random as hero cards.
Players will be able to use light and dark abilities and while light abilities tend to be built around support, while dark abilities revolve around damage-dealing abilities.
The developers of the game, Firaxis also confirmed that they will not be providing any loot boxes involved with the game’s card system. But there will be purely cosmetic skins available for purchase once the game comes out. These skins will not affect the game balance in any way.
You can watch the gameplay showcase below:
Take control of The Hunter who is the first customizable original hero in the Marvel Universe. As the Hunter leads a collection of heroes that span across the Avengers, X-Men, Runaways, and many more as they customize their team. Keep your heroes ready with their own skills that will aid in the fight against the Mother of Demons, Lilith.
The game also offers an immersive personal story that brings familiar heroes to an unfamiliar world, filled with the supernatural and the mystical. You and your team of heroes are tasked with facing off against fallen versions of iconic Marvel characters while attempting to stop Lilith from completing an ancient prophecy and reviving her evil master, Chthon.
The confirmed heroes appearing in the game have been confirmed to be some big names such as Iron Man, Wolverine, and Captain America and plyers can develop friendships with the heroes will bring better abilities.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be released in March 2022. The game will be available on PC (Via Epic Games Store and Steam), PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series, and Nintendo Switch.
