Revealed during Gamescom 2021's Opening Night Live, Marvel's Midnight Suns is publisher 2K and developer Firaxis' long-rumored next game.
The title is a tactical RPG that explores "the darker side of the Marvel Universe," already featuring a mixture of popular and less known superheroes and supervillains as part of its characters list.
Based on the 90's comic book Rise of the Midnights Sons, the game puts players in the shoes of The Hunter, a superhero which you get to customize, joining forces with the likes of Wolverine and Blade as they set off to stop Lilith's nefarious plans.
Marvel's Midnight Suns' characters list isn't necessarily extensive at this point – which is understandable since the game was recently announced – but chances are you'll fight alongside or against at least one of your favorite superheroes and supervillains.
Marvel's Midnight Suns Characters List
The title won't be just a reskinned version of Firaxis' rebooted XCOM series, boasting its own combat system whose use of cards imply a deck-building element.
Punching and kicking stuff is generally fun in video games, but moreso when you've recognizable superheroes doing it. This is how the Marvel's Midnight Suns' characters list looks at the moment:
- The Hunter (customizable player character)
- Lilith (main villain)
- Captain America
- Captain Marvel
- Chthon (mentioned)
- Dr. Strange
- Ghost Rider
- Iron Man
- Nico Minoru
- Scarlet Witch
- The Hulk
It's very likely that more superheroes and supervillains will be part of Marvel's Midnight Suns' characters list. Since there's still a bit of time left until its scheduled release in the second half of 2022, we'll likely learn more about who we can team up with and fight against over the coming months.
