Developed by Firaxis Games, Marvel’s Midnight Suns is an upcoming tactical role-playing game packed with well-known superheroes.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is the latest superhero game being made and it was first announced at the virtual Gamescom 2021. The game will take inspiration from the Midnight Sons comic book run of the mid-90s, which narrated the tale of a group of supernatural superheroes as they fought against Lilith, Mother of All Demons.
The game, however, will take a few different routes from the comic and will be an entirely new story where players will jump into the shoes of “The Hunter”, a customisable superhero created for Marvel’s Midnight Suns in collaboration with Marvel Comics.
Apart from this, the playable roster of characters includes prominent names like Iron Man, Captain America, Wolverine, Doctor Strange, Captain Marvel, Blade, Ghost Rider, Magik, and Nico Minoru.
You will also be able to pick The Hunter’s superpowers from over 40 different abilities. Here’s a look at everything we know so far about Marvel’s Midnight Suns.
