Marvel’s Midnight Suns, finally, the tactical RPG from Firaxis Games, has some gameplay footage, giving battle scenes, character interaction and more. Captured on PC, it showcases how battles play out with squads of three heroes embarking on missions. Check it out below, courtesy of IGN.
Each of the 12 heroes in the game have their own unique abilities but these are not all available at once in battles. Instead, they are available as cards that are randomly distributed before each battle (and can be upgraded back in the center). Some abilities have very cool effects – like using a knock back skill to send an enemy hurtling into an explosive barrel or over ledges – while others can apply status effects. There are also finishers and team attacks.
Outside of combat, players will build friendships with different heroes. As one explores their base, the Abbey, they discover different things like Power Words for unlocking new areas. Daily activities offer unique things like a stroll with Tony Stark or meditation with Magik. Each has its own preferences and strengthening those bonds can bring benefits to the Abbey and fight.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns out in March 2022 for Xbox Series X / S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
