MARVEL MIDNIGHT SUNS TRAILER

With the trailer, above, Firaxis Games have announced a new videogame featuring (mostly) Marvel's supernatural squad. The studio behind XCOM and Civilization promise a tactical role-playing game starring Doctor Strange, Ghost Rider, Wolverine, Blade, Magik, Nico Minoru, Iron Man, Captain Marvel and more.

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.

When Hydra use magic and science to revive Lilith, Mother of Demons the Avengers ask the 'Midnight Suns' to help them stop her resurrecting Chthon, her all-powerful master. The supernaturally powered heroes are joined by a new character – the Hunter, child of Lilith for the game, that players will control, develop powers for, and steer to give commands to the team. 

Creative director Jake Solomon said of the gameplay, "There are no mechanics that we have in common with XCOM... we had to design an entirely new combat system because [Marvel's Midnight Suns] is a very different fantasy. As a superhero, you need to feel like the most powerful character on the board... we still need to provide the players with a challenge, but the challenge now is that there are a lot of enemies. In XCOM you're terrified that you're about to die half the time, but here your enemies are terrified that they're about to die half the time."

Marvel's Midnight Suns arrives March 2022 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
