MARVEL'S MIDNIGHT SUNS Release Date Confirmed Alongside A Series Of Prequel Shorts

Marvel's Midnight Suns is set to release on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and PC on December 2. Leading up to the game's launch, Marvel will release an animated prequel series that provides additional backstory.

After multiple delays, we finally have a release date for Marvel's Midnight Suns, and this time it could be set in stone. The upcoming tactical role-playing game from 2K and developer Firaxis Games (Civilization, XCOM) is set to launch on December 2, 2022 for Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 5 and Windows PC.

For those still playing on a last-gen console like the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or even the Nintendo Switch, you'll have to wait a bit longer. We still don't have a release date for these older consoles, but 2K did reiterate that the launch is coming "at a later date."

Accompanying the release date announcement was a brand new trailer showing off the card-based tactics gameplay. We also get to see some of the non-combat oriented gameplay, such as the role-playing elements in which you interact with other characters and influence the gameplay and those heroes' abilities. In between combat missions, you'll also be managing an upgradeable base of operations called "The Abbey."

Set in the darker, supernatural side of the Marvel Universe, Marvel's Midnight Suns is a tactical RPG from the creators of XCOM. As the Hunter, a legendary demon slayer with a mysterious past, you'll lead a team of legendary Marvel heroes as they attempt to stop the Mother of Demons from completing an ancient prophecy and summoning her evil master, Chthon.

Inspired by the classic Marvel Comics storyline, "Rise of the Midnight Sons," Marvel's Midnight Suns explores the darker side of the Marvel Universe. You play as the Hunter, an ancient warrior (and fully customizable protagonist) who has been resurrected by the Midnight Suns to help defeat Lilith, Mother of Demons. You'll fight alongside an unlikely team of Super Heroes and supernatural warriors including Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Captain America, Iron Man, Blade, and more.

It was also announced that Marvel Entertainment will be released a series animated prequel shorts for the game. A set of five short videos will "provide backstory on how Lilith became the Mother of Demons, and how Super Heroes like Blade, Magik, Ghost Rider and Nico Minoru came together to form the young core of the Midnight Suns."

The first video will premiere on October 31, 2022 with subsequent videos releasing weekly. You'l be able to watch them via the Marvel Entertainment YouTube Channel. The intro teaser for the series was shared as well.

Marvel's Midnight Suns has been met with intrigue along with some hesitation given the game's development woes. Admittedly, the tactics strategy gameplay is not for everyone, although Firaxis is about as good as it gets when it comes to developing for this sort of gameplay genre. So there are some high hopes for this game. Are you excited for Marvel's Midnight Suns?
