A few weeks ago, the new turn-based tactical Marvel’s Midnight Suns from XCOM developers was delayed to 2023. A new announcement from 2k and Marvel Entertainment, though, set the release date to December 2, 2022, and this time for good.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a strategy card-based game that lets players be their favorite Marvel heroes alongside the Hunter (main protagonist of the game). MMS will be on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
Below is the new gameplay trailer and press news.
2K and Marvel Entertainment announced today Marvel’s Midnight Suns will launch on December 2 for Windows PC, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 – pre-orders are available today. Launch timing for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch versions of the game will be shared at a later date.
The announcement was made as part of the Disney and Marvel GAMES SHOWCASE and featured a new gameplay trailer that showcases the full breadth of what players can do in Marvel’s Midnight Suns. As a new and customizable Marvel character, The Hunter, players will lead a powerful team of supernatural Super Heroes facing growing unholy threats and experience a tactical Marvel game unlike any other.
In addition, Marvel’s Midnight Suns Prequel Shorts was announced during the Disney and Marvel GAMES SHOWCASE and on-stage at D23 Expo 2022. Marvel’s Midnight Suns Prequel Shorts is a set of five short videos that provide backstory on how Lilith became the Mother of Demons, and how Super Heroes like Blade, Magik, Ghost Rider and Nico Minoru came together to form the young core of the Midnight Suns.
“In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, we knew we had a really cool opportunity to dive deep into the dark side of Marvel and introduce some supernatural heroes that may be new to many Marvel fans,” stated Jake Solomon, creative director at Firaxis Games. “Prequel Shorts sheds light on the events leading up the game and really brings the world of Marvel’s Midnight Suns to life.”
As part of the announcement of Prequel Shorts, 2K and Marvel Entertainment debuted the opening intro and shared that the first short video will premiere on Halloween – October 31, 2022 – via the Marvel Entertainment YouTube channel. Marvel’s Midnight Suns Prequel Shorts is being animated by the talented teams at Sun Creature Studio and DIGIC Pictures; each video is currently scheduled to be released weekly.
