Marvel’s Midnight Suns has been one of most buzzed about video game titles of 2022 thanks to its stacked roster of characters and unique premise. Unfortunately, the game isn’t arriving next month as previously expected. But fans won’t have to wait that long to fight Lilith and her minions alongside some of their favorite superheroes. During today’s Disney and Marvel Games showcase at D23, 2K and Firaxis premiered a new Midnight Suns trailer featuring a lot of new gameplay footage. The promo also confirms that the game will now hit stores on December 2.
The latest trailer primarily highlights the turn-based combat system that’s typical of tactical RPGs like this one. Luckily, Firaxis already perfected that style on its critically-acclaimed XCOM series. But the main difference is that fans draw cards in order to make their moves. In the end, players are forced to prioritize strategy over button-mashing, which makes for a more challenging gaming experience.
Until early last month, the developers were planning to unveil the game on October 7. But despite the delay, Marvel is still releasing new Midnight Suns content that month to hold fans over until the title’s proper debut. Starting on October 31, Marvel’s official YouTube channel will premiere new animated shorts set before the events of the game. Each of these shorts will follow a different hero, with new episodes centering on Blade, Wolverine, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Captain America, and more. Check out some early footage below.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be available later this year for PC, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X|S. The game will be released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch at a later date.
