Opening Night Live at Gamescom 2021 kicked off with huge announcements, one of which being Marvel’s Midnight Suns, a new video game starring the most renowned superheroes from the Marvel world.
Marvel’s super heroes in a tactical XCOM-like game
The new Firaxis game was only revealed in an outstanding cinematic trailer. We could see Wolverine, Iron Man, Blade, Ghost Rider, Captain America, and Dr. Strange, among others, for a total of 13 characters that will be extremely recognizable to you.
The XCOM developers are working on this game, which will be an RPG with turn-based tactical warfare. To stop Lilith, the mother of devils, from taking over the world, the superheroes will have to band together. In addition, The Hunter, an entirely new character created in collaboration with Marvel Comics, will be the main protagonist.
The Hunter’s look and combat abilities may be modified from head to toe, with a choice of 40 distinct superpowers. On September 1, we’ll watch the first Midnight Suns gameplay to get a clearer sense of what to expect from Firaxis’ upcoming tactical game.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC in March 2022.
