Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a Tactics-Based RPG Developed by Firaxis

Announced today during Gamescom Opening Night Live is Midnight Suns, a brand new game in the Marvel universe.

While we’re light on information, the rocking cinematic trailer showed us a bunch of familiar Marvel characters: there’s Wolverine, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Blade and more.

But rather than being an action adventure game as you might expect from Marvel, this is a tactics game. It’s being developed by Firaxis, the team behind the XCOM and Civilization games. It’s in the best tactical hands, for sure, and we’re excited to see how their expertise carries over into the Marvel universe.

Along with familiar faces, there’ll be a brand new character that Firaxis has created in conjunction with Marvel. There’s a lot to look forward to, for sure.

We’ll see more from the game on 1st September, when the first look at gameplay will be revealed. Until then, give the cinematic trailer a watch below.
