Marvel’s Midnight SunsHowever, it’s something completely different. The most thrilling confirmation is made byFiraxis GamesThe developer of X-COM.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns, being a Firaxis game, should not surprise you. It’s a strategy game. Imagine XCOM with Marvel characters. Although Marvel’s Midnight Suns gameplay has not been revealed, you can expect to see similar turn-based tactical combat in which every action can make the difference between survival and failure. Firaxis said that Marvel fans could look forward to seeing gameplay in September.
However, Marvel’s Midnight Suns have a major feature that is different from what fans might expect. These aren’t necessarily the Marvel characters that fans would be expecting. Marvel’s Midnight Suns are set in a darker world than what movie and comic fans might expect. It’s a world full of supernatural enemies, including Lovecraftian horrors and vampires.
Marvel’s superheroes now have a new, exciting look that fits the darker, more terrifying story. All of them are wearing the same style of Midnight Suns armour, which will be assumed to help project supernatural forces. The heroes shown in the trailer include Wolverine, Ghost Rider, Iron Man, Magik, Blade, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, and Nico Minoru. It’s not clear if these are the only Marvel characters in the game or if there will be more.
Another exciting feature that was confirmed was that players could create their own Marvel superhero to be central to the story of Marvel’s Midnight Suns. This character will allow players to customize it fully, but Firaxis can still tell a unique story by not making any other Marvel characters the main focus.
Marvel comic book nerds know that Marvel’s Midnight Suns wasn’t an original idea. It is based on an existing Marvel storyline, the Midnight Sons. However, it has been reworked slightly to make it more inclusive. Nine characters were brought together by the Midnight Sons to fight Lilith and her demonic kids. In the coming months, you will hear more about Lilith and the Midnight Suns as well as Marvel’s new strategy video.
