Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be released on December 2, it was announced during the Disney & Marvel Games Showcase last night.
The game was already delayed earlier this year, but no new release date was given then. It is now known that the game will be released on December 2 on PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X and S. The versions for Xbox One, PS4 and Nintendo Switch will follow at a later unknown moment.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a tactical RPG set in the Marvel universe, in which players create their own character The Hunter and meet familiar heroes such as Captain America, Blade and Ghost Rider. The concept of the game is based on the Midnight Sons comic series from the 90s, in which supernatural heroes come together.
Midnight Suns is being developed by Firaxis, the studio behind modern Xcom games. Also in Midnight Suns players engage in tactical battles, although there should be more focus on relationships between characters.
From October 31, there will also be a series of ‘prequel shorts’ on YouTube. The five videos feature the backstories of Lilith, Blade, Magik, Ghost Rider and Nico Minoru. Check out both a new gameplay trailer for the game, as well as a teaser for the prequel shorts, below.
