Marvel's Midnight Suns is a new Tactical Role-Playing Game developed by Firaxis Games and set in the Marvel universe. Lilith, the Mother of all Demons, has begun threatening the world so it's up to the Avengers and other Marvel characters to band together to create a team known as the Midnight Suns. Well-known characters like Iron Man and Wolverine will be joined by characters such as Magik and Nico Monoru, which haven't gotten quite as much time in the spotlight.
The game will have 12 playable Marvel characters with the inclusion of The Hunter, the daughter of Lilith and is said to be the only one that can stop her. The Hunter is a customizable superhero that the player will be able to specialize through 40 different abilities. Gameplay will be split between turn-based tactical gameplay and third person exploration segments where you'll be able to interact with other characters and level up The Hunter. The game is loosely based around the 90s comic series titles Rise of the Midnight Sons which saw a similar lineup of heroes fighting against Lilith.
After centuries of sleep, Lilith, Mother of Demons, has been revived by Hydra through a twist of dark magic and science. Lilith stops at nothing to complete an ancient prophecy and bring back her evil master, Chthon. Pushed to the brink, the Avengers desperately look to fight fire with hellfire and enlist the help of the Midnight Suns - Nico Minoru, Blade, Magik and Ghost Rider - young heroes with powers deeply rooted in the supernatural, formed to prevent the very prophecy Lilith aims to fulfill. Together, they resurrect an ancient warrior - the Hunter, Lilith’s forsaken child and the only hero known to have ever defeated her. In the face of fallen allies and the fate of the world at stake, it will be up to you to rise up against the darkness!
From the legendary studio that changed strategy and tactics games forever comes a new title, offering cinematic tactical combat with a Super Hero flair, friendships to forge with iconic heroes, and an unforgettable adventure that dives deep into the darker side of Marvel.
