Darkness Falls in October with the Release of Marvel's Midnight Suns
Marvel's Midnight Suns was delayed earlier this year and tagged with a "late 2022" release window. But now those of us wondering when it would release need wonder no longer. Publisher 2K confirmed that the upcoming tactical RPG set in the Marvel universe will release on October 7, 2022, for PC (Steam and EGS), PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Series X|S. According to a press release, the Nintendo Switch version will launch sometime after.
The news was announced as part of 2022's Summer Games Fest and coincided with a brand-new trailer (seen above), which reveals that the ol' Web-Head himself, Spider-Man, will be a playable character. The trailer also showcases the villains and corrupted heroes under Lilith's spell: Sabretooth, Hulk, Scarlet Witch, and Venom.
Marvel's Midnight Suns puts you in the role of a new, customizable superhero called The Hunter as you assemble a group of heroes, including Blade, Doctor Strange, Wolverine, and Ghost Rider, to battle Lilith and her Hydra allies. Coming from the developers of Civilization and XCOM, Midnight Suns will feature tactical gameplay, a card system, and more. Players will be able to purchase cosmetics, according to Firaxis, but it will not feature loot boxes of any kind.
The game is currently available for pre-order in four different versions.
- The Standard Edition will be available for PC, PS4, and Xbox One for $59.99 and include the base game only.
- The Enhanced Edition will be available for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S for $69.99 and include the "enhanced" and "next-gen optimized" base game, as well as "five premium cosmetic skins."
