Marvel’s Midnight Suns, the tactical RPG from Firaxis Games, finally has some gameplay footage, providing a look at the combat, character interactions and more. Captured on PC, it showcases how battles play out with squads of three heroes embarking on missions. Check it out below, courtesy of IGN.
Each of the 12 heroes in the game has their own unique abilities but these aren’t all immediately available in battles. Instead, they’re available as cards which are randomly doled out before each battle (and can be upgraded back at the base). Some abilities have very cool effects – like using a knockback skill to send a foe hurtling into an explosive barrel or over ledges – while others can apply status effects. There are finishers and team-up attacks as well.
Outside of combat, players will cultivate friendships with different heroes. As one explores their base, the Abbey, they’ll discover different things like Words of Power for unlocking new areas. Daily activities offer unique things like going on a stroll with Tony Stark or meditating with Magik. Each has their own preferences and strengthening those bonds can lead to benefits for both the Abbey and combat.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is out in March 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
