The long wait to find out exactly when Marvel’s Midnight Suns is coming out is over, and we can reveal it’s being released on October 7th, 2022.
An all-new tactical RPG set in the “darker side” of the Marvel Universe, Marvel’s Midnight Suns is coming to PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, and Windows PC (on both Steam, and Epic Games Store), with a Nintendo Switch version coming at a later date.
The official story for the game is as follows: “When the demonic Lilith and her fearsome horde unite with the evil armies of Hydra, it’s time to unleash Marvel’s dark side. As The Hunter, your mission is to lead an unlikely team of seasoned Super Heroes and dangerous supernatural warriors to victory. Can legends such as Doctor Strange, Iron Man, and Blade put aside their differences in the face of a growing apocalyptic threat? If you’re going to save the world, you’ll have to forge alliances and lead the team into battle as the legendary Midnight Suns – Earth’s last line of defense against the underworld”.
“We’re thrilled to invite players into the darker, supernatural side of Marvel,” said Bill Rosemann, Vice President and Creative Director at Marvel Games. “In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, our friends at Firaxis and 2K have created an incredibly unique and totally authentic Marvel experience that fans can leap into this October!”
The announcement of the release date comes as part of the Summer Games Fest 2022, which showed off two newly revealed unlockable characters you can play as, including Spider-Man.
“We know fans have been eager to see what’s coming next for Marvel’s Midnight Suns,” said Jake Solomon, Creative Director at Firaxis Games. “We’re honored by the opportunity to introduce so many new heroes and villains to Marvel fans and can’t wait for tactics players to discover the joys of fighting like a Super Hero in Marvel’s Midnight Suns”.
