Marvel’s Midnight Suns Is XCOM Creators’ New Tactical RPG; Arrives March 2022

Sometimes, even leaks cannot stop the excitement of a new announcement for beloved properties. 2K Games and Marvel Entertainment have joined forces, and revealed Marvel’s Midnight Suns, a brand new tactical RPG that will delve into the darker side of the comic universe that will launch in March 2022.

Through a twisted marriage of magic and science, the nefarious force known as Hydra has revived Lilith, Mother of Demons, after centuries of slumber. Lilith will stop at nothing to complete an ancient prophecy and summon her evil master, Chthon. It sounds like a bad plan that will require some stopping.

Enter the Midnight Suns – Nico Minoru, Blade, Magik, and Ghost Rider – young heroes with powers deeply rooted in the supernatural formed to stop the very prophecy Lilith aims to fulfil. Together, they resurrect an ancient warrior – the Hunter, Lilith’s forsaken child and the only hero known to have ever defeated her, kicking off Marvel’s Midnight Suns.

The Hunter will be the first customisable original hero in the Marvel Universe, and developers Firaxis Games will have plenty to work with when it comes to heroes. The Avengers, X-Men, Runaways, and more will be joining the fight against Hell itself.
