Marvel’s Midnight Suns were announced today at Gamescom 2021! Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a tactical RPG that is set in the Marvel Comics Universe. Marvel’s Midnight Suns is developed by 2K games, and Firaxis Games and is expected to include many Marvel Heroes such as Blade, Wolverine, The Runaways, Doctor Strange and Ghost Rider.
From what we know of the premise of Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Hydra revived the mother of Demons known as Lilith. Lilith wants to fulfill an ancient prophesy and summon Chthon, which is her master. The superhero team known as the Midnights Suns which include Ghost Rider, Blade, Magik, and Nico Minoru will work together to defeat Lilith and stop the prophecy from being fulfilled. If you are a fan of tactical RPGs and Marvel Comics, then this game sounds like a dream come true so far.
“I grew up reading and loving Marvel Comics… To be entrusted with these characters and their stories is an honor for me and the team. If you’re a Marvel fan, or an RPG fan, or a fan of tactics games, Marvel’s Midnight Suns will make these beloved characters come alive in a way that you’ve never seen before.” – Jake Solomon, Creative Director, Firaxis Games.
This quote from Jake Solomon helps to ensure me as a fan that this title is in very good hands. It’s always nice to hear from developers and parties that have a vested interest in ensuring the project lines up with the source material all while creating something that is unique, and that fans will hopefully love.
