Midnight Suns, Marvel’s Next Big Superhero Team-Up, 2022!

There’s a new Marvel game arriving early next year called Midnight Suns. It’s a tactical RPG from Firaxis, which is best known for the XCOM and Civilization titles. here is all you need to know.

Midnight Suns sees Wolverine team up with Avenger’s favorites Iron Man and Captain America – plus other Marvel characters, including Blade, Ghost Rider, and Doctor Strange, who rise up to save the world from Lilith, the Mother of Demons. Marvel’s Midnight Suns are expected to launch in March 2022.

Set in the darker side of the Marvel universe, Midnight Suns features a deeply tactical battle system that rewards clever thinking. Players select up to three heroes to bring into combat with their abilities represented through unique playing cards. These cards can be arranged and customized to suit the player’s preference while utilizing the environment to their advantage.

Solomon also described Midnight Suns as something of the opposite to XCOM when it comes to combat, as the random factor is shifted from XCOM’s infamous chance to hit (not a thing here) to the card-like mechanics that will offer different abilities to your Midnight Suns heroes depending on the draw.

“Cards provide a new and refreshing way to approach tactics, allowing us to really go all-out in designing a combat system that makes every hero feel, look, and play differently,” says Jake Solomon, Creative Director at Firaxis.

“In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, you aren’t learning how to fight or gradually grow stronger – you and your fellow heroes are already legends and must combine everything in your arsenal to stop Lilith.”

Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a new tactical RPG set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe, putting you face-to-face against demonic forces of the underworld as you team up with and live among the Midnight Suns, Earth’s last line of defense.

Midnight Suns also introduces an original hero referred to as the Hunter. You will be customizing this original creation in any way you see fit and controlling them between battles. This is where you can engage the familiar Marvel heroes, develop relationships and unlock new abilities to strengthen your card sets.

“In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, you aren’t just saving the world with heroic combat,” adds Garth DeAngelis, Senior Producer at Firaxis. “You’re living alongside and befriending Marvel legends…all the while making interesting decisions befitting of timeless Firaxis gameplay.”

There’s still a lot of unknowns surrounding the game. However, we do expect to see a whole lot more in the coming months. Marvel’s Midnight Suns will launch in March 2022 for PC, PS5, PS4, XSX/S, XB1, and Switch.

Fans won’t have to wait long for more information: a gameplay reveal is planned for September 1st, and Midnight Suns will be released on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Steam, and the Epic Games Store in March 2022.

But there is another trait that unites XCOM and Midnight Suns: the potential for character injury. In XCOM, your characters can famously suffer permadeath, but they can also simply be out of commission for some time, forcing you to rotate between the full roster. In Midnight Suns, injured heroes may still join the next battle, but they’ll be debuffed in various ways, making it convenient to just choose a healthy replacement instead.
