Marvel’s ‘Midnight Suns’ getting game from Firaxis’ XCOM team

XCOM team announce Marvel’s ‘Midnight Suns’ at Gamescom 2021

Marvel fans have a new video game to look forward to and it goes by the name Midnight Suns. Set for release in March 2022, the game is being developed by XCOM: Enemy Unknown designer Jake Solomon. It’s a tactics RPB that’ll feature Wolverine, Iron Man, Blade, Ghost Rider, and a new superhero called The Hunter. They’ll be facing off against Lilith.

The game appears to be based on the 1992 story in Ghost Rider #31 by Howard Mackie and Andy Kubert. In that story, the team faced off against Lilith as well, with an original team consisting of Wong, Morbius, Bats, Blade, Doctor Voodoo, Elsa Bloodstone, Iron Fist, Man-Thing, Mr. Knight, Doctor Strange, and Scarlet Spider.

Details from Solomon can be seen here including info about how your relationship as The Hunter with Marvel Comics characters matter as much as important as the items and abilities you bring into combat.
