Marvel's Midnight Suns was officially announced during the Gamescom opening show. With their idea, publisher 2k and developer Firaxis rely on a gameplay approach that is comparatively unspent in the heroic game genre: It is a tactical role-playing game and not a beating. The release is not that far away - Marvel's Midnight Suns should appear for PC and consoles as early as March 2022. 

Marvel's Midnight Suns will be released in March 2022 and will be available for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store - and the game will also be released for Nintendo Switch. That is the common plan of Firaxis and Publisher 2K.

Gamescom on site: hopes for the next year

2K and Marvel Entertainment announced in the opening stream of Gamescom 2021 Marvel's Midnight Suns - a new tactical RPG set in the darker part of the Marvel universe. Players are faced with supernatural powers as they team up with and live among the Midnight Suns, Earth's last line of defense against the underworld. One thing is clear: Midnight Suns is not a warmed-up copy of the somewhat unsuccessful Marvel's Avengers from Square Enix. At the same time, the game is not an “X-Com Marvel”, as fans had hoped in the meantime. After all: The combination of roleplaying and tactics could lead to Marvel's Midnight Suns not only differentiating itself from the comic hero genre, which has hitherto been rather dull on beating, not only in terms of marketing.

When it was announced today at Opening Night Live, 2K showed a cinematic trailer showing the dramatic resurrection of Hunter - the first customizable original hero in the Marvel universe:

Through a dark marriage of magic and science, the nefarious power known as the Hydra has awakened Lilith, the mother of demons, from her centuries-long slumber. Lilith will stop at nothing to fulfill an ancient prophecy and summon her diabolical master, Chthon. The Avengers, pushed to the edge of the abyss, desperately try to fight fire with hellfire. They enlist the help of the Midnight Suns - Nico Minoru, Blade, Magik and Ghost Rider - young heroes with powers that are deeply rooted in the supernatural and are supposed to prevent the prophecy from being fulfilled. Together they bring to life an ancient warrior - Hunter. Hunter is Lilith's abandoned child and the only known hero who has ever defeated her.
