Firaxis fans waiting for a new outing from the team will surely get excited for this one as 2K and Marvel Entertainment have announced Marvel’s Midnight Suns, a brand new tactical RPG set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe.
Scheduled for a March 2022 release, Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and Epic Games.
The game will see the Avengers enlist the help of the titular cast – Nico Minoru, Blade, Magik, and Ghost Rider – young heroes with powers deeply rooted in the supernatural to fight the resurrected evil master Chthon.
“We’re thrilled to team with Firaxis Games, who combine a history of building outstanding tactical games with an authentic love of Marvel’s supernatural side,” said Bill Rosemann, Vice President of Creative at Marvel Games. “Marvel’s Midnight Suns offers players the chance to not only live alongside legendary heroes, but to also experience an all-new, original story that dives deep into the monstrous shadows of the Marvel Universe. Darkness Falls. Rise Up!”
If you recall, the game was actually part of a huge 2K leak that pegged it to be a “Marvel XCOM” title, and that’s exactly what we’re getting here. While nothing else was shown, we can look forward to more information about Marvel’s Midnight Suns on September 1.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns will launch on March 2022.
