2K and Marvel Entertainment unveil the first gameplay of Marvel’s Midnight Sunsgiving an exciting first look at the game’s genre-defining tactical combat and a new side to legendary Marvel heroes, as players experience an unforgettable adventure that plunges into the darker side of Marvel.

In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, players take on the role of the Hunter – the first customizable original hero of the Marvel Universe, brought back to life from a centuries-old slumber to lead the Midnight Suns, with heroes embracing Avengers, X-Men, Runaways and more. Forced to unite in opposition to Lilith, Mother of Demons and parent of 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.

“We are thrilled to be working with Marvel to create Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Not only is this a sensational and original direction for Firaxis, but we also have a rewarding partnership with Marvel in telling new stories of their world. “ said Steve Martin, president of the Firaxis Games studio.

As the Hunter, every day of Marvel’s Midnight Suns begins in the Abbey, the last safe haven from Lilith’s demonic influence and the player’s secret mystical base. The protagonists will move freely in the Abbey from an “over the shoulder” third person perspective and will greet their companions before embarking on missions.

Marvel’s Midnight Suns features a new immersive and deeply customizable battle system that rewards intelligent thinking with superhero appeal.

In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, players select up to three heroes to bring into combat, and all hero abilities are represented by cards. Each hero, including the Hunter, has a unique set of cards that can be organized and customized to suit that character to the player’s preferences and play style. In addition to the cards, players will also be able to use their environments as they push, jump and smash their way to victory.

“In Marvel’s Midnight Sunsyou are not learning to fight or gradually get stronger – you and your fellow heroes are already legends and must combine everything you have in your arsenal to stop Lilith “said Jake Solomon, Creative Director of Firaxis. “The cards provide a refreshing new way to approach tactics, allowing us to really go all the way in designing a combat system that makes each hero feel, look and play differently.”

After completing the missions, players return to the Abbey where they can 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 others. As the Hunter, players will be able to see heroes in a new light and unlock additional abilities as they increase their friendship through a variety of activities, such as learning about heroes through dialogue options, gifts and more.

“At Marvel, we are always looking to bring new and fresh experiences to our fans and we know that people have wanted to ‘hang out’ with their favorite Marvel heroes for a long time,” said Bill Rosemann, Vice President of Creative at Marvel Games.

“This is finally possible in Marvel’s Midnight Suns. We couldn’t be happier with the way 2K and Firaxis are bringing the mystical and darkest stories of the Marvel universe to the fore. “

“It was incredibly important for us to build something that the gaming world has never seen before”said Garth DeAngelis, Firaxis Games Senior Franchise Producer.

“In Marvel’s Midnight Sunsyou’re not just saving the world with heroic combat – you’re living alongside and befriending Marvel legends, engaging in an incredibly deep story, all while making interesting decisions that befitting Firaxis’ timeless gameplay. “

Added Chad Rocco, director of fiction at Firaxis Games: “With all these heroes from Avengers, X-Men, Runaways and more – this is a particularly interesting and diverse group of heroes who don’t always have the same vision. As the Hunter, he’ll be up to you to help bridge the gap between the old guard and the newcomers. “

Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be released in March 2022 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.
