We've got our first look at the new video game Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Developed by Firaxis, they've already been showcasing some of the characters, gameplay, and storyline hints fans can get a hold of real soon.
Now, we've got the official gameplay trailer, as released by Marvel Entertainment:
The Origin Of Marvel’s Midnight Suns
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is an RPG with card-based skillsets, heavily inspired by the Midnight Sons comic arc released back in the '90s. Its plot mainly revolved around Lilith, Mother of all Demons. The game transpires from that, wherein she'll be revived by Hydra to resurrect her master along with her army of demons. The Caretaker decides to reform the Midnight Suns comprised of some of Marvel’s familiar and yet-to-be known heroes.
It'll feature some familiar MCU faces, including the Avengers and X-Men. They could be seen in the trailer, having some sort of golden touch, which is the overall motif of the game. Each have their own set of abilities, such as high damage-dealing attacks, skills with healing effects, and many more. One of their goals in the game is to revive Lilith’s child, Hunter, the legendary hero who was the only one who defeated her mother in the past.
The Players As Hunter
Players will also be indulged to play Hunter as a customizable character who can either manifest light powers (healing/support abilities) or dark powers (damage-dealing attacks at the expense of Hunter and the ally heroes).
But aside from the fighting aspect of the game, another feature players can take advantage of is the ‘living hub’ of Midnight Suns known as ‘Abbey.’ In here, there will be ‘hours of rewarding exploration, gameplay, and story,’ as well as the chance to unlock and upgrade new abilities, get costumes, and try new missions courtesy of the war room with Captain Marvel.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns will release for the PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch platforms, with a target release date of March 2022.
