This week the parents at 2K revealed a replacement called Midnight Suns – made within the Marvel universe. This is often all about Marvel’s darkest side, so we’re talking Ghost Rider, Wolverine, Iron Man, Dr Strange, Blade, Hunter, Magik, Captain Marvel, and Nico Minoru. This is often a mixture of characters that’ll likely be the bottom at launch – there’ll be more, too.
This game won’t be an immediate recreation of the Marvel Midnight Sons comic series. Within the comic series with Midnight Sons, the battle was against Lilith; this new game is that too – the… name… is simply different. to form matters more confusing, the sport “Midnight Sons” was also a Marvel computer game, released in 2017 as a single-player and multiplayer action RPG hack and slash game developed by Omega Force.
The new game, Midnight Suns, will be released in early 2022 (UPDATE: March of 2022) as a single-player and multiplayer action RPG, the likes of which you’ve potentially played within the XCOM game series. This new game was developed by Faraxis Games, equivalent folks that created XCOM. This new game will be available on PlayStation 5, Xbox One X, and PC at launch.
The song included within the video above may be a Metallica cover of the first Enter Sandman. This song was crafted by Alessia Cara and, therefore, the Warning and included on The Metallica Blacklist.
NOTE: the parents behind the Midnight Suns social networking pages suggest that the sport will include “a team unlike any you’ve seen before”, including members of The Avengers, X-Men, and Runaways.
At the purpose at which this game was revealed, the creators suggested they’d reveal a gameplay video in 1-week’s time. They also announced that potential players of the sport could check in to urge news from the location at 2K (news and promotional marketing from 2K and its affiliates) in exchange for a “Blade Nightstalker Skin” within the game once it’s released.
