Marvel's Midnight Suns Venom

Today 2K Games and Firaxis provided new details and a release date for the second DLC coming to Marvel's Midnight Suns

The upcoming DLC is titled "Redemption" and it features the popular antihero Venom, who will become a playable character, making for a rather unconventional choice among the Midnight Suns team. He will have his own set of 10 hero abilities and he'll be available on February 23,

The DLC also includes new story missions, an upgrade for the Abbey, and cosmetics for Venom himself. 

Of course, if you have the Season Pass or the Legendary Edition, you won't need to buy the DLC separately. We already know that the Season Pass will include two more characters, Morbius and Storm. At the moment, we don't know when those will join the team, but the first DLC hero, Deadpool, is already available following his release last month.

You can check out the trailer focusing on Venom and his story content below.

If you're unfamiliar with Marvel's Midnight Suns, it's a turn-based tactical RPG somehow similar in gameplay to Firaxis' how XCOM series, but with a few twists added. You get to lead a squad of Marvel superheroes and antiheroes against an otherworldly threat, and it's the first-ever game that lets you create and completely customize your very own Marvel hero or heroine. 

The game is currently available for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC, while the previously-announced PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch versions have been delayed to a later (not yet announced) date. If you'd like to know whether the game is worth your hard-earned money or not, you can read our review
