Publisher 2K Games and developer Firaxis Games have released a set of gameplay reveal trailers and screenshots for tactical RPG Marvel’s Midnight Suns, showcasing the game’s card-based combat system.
Here are the latest details, via 2K Games:
In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, players take on the role of the Hunter—the first customizable original hero in the Marvel Universe, brought back to life from a centuries-long sleep to lead the Midnight Suns, with heroes spanning across the Avengers, X-Men, Runaways, and more. Forced to unite in opposition to Lilith, Mother of Demons and parent to the Hunter, the Midnight Suns must rise up against the darkness in the face of fallen allies and with the fate of the world at stake.
As the Hunter, each day in Marvel’s Midnight Suns starts off in the Abbey, the last safe haven from Lilith’s demonic influence and the player’s very own secret mystical base. Players will move freely throughout the Abbey from a third-person “over-the-shoulder” perspective and greet their fellow heroes before embarking on missions.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns features a new engaging and deeply customizable battle system that rewards clever thinking with Super Hero flair. In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, players select up to three heroes to bring into combat and all hero abilities are represented through cards. Each hero, including the Hunter, has a unique set of cards that can be arranged and customized to tailor that character to the player’s preference and playstyle. In addition to cards, players will also be able to utilize their environments as they shove, leap, and smash their way to victory.
After completing missions, players return to the Abbey where they’ll develop relationships and strengthen their personal bonds off the battlefield with some of Marvel’s most beloved heroes, such as Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain Marvel, and more. As the Hunter, players will get to see heroes in a new light and unlock additional abilities as they increase their Friendship through a variety of activities, such as getting to know heroes better through dialogue options, Hangouts, gift giving, and more.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is due out for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC via Steam and Epic Games Store in March 2022.
