Marvel's Midnight Suns

Firaxis recently revealed gameplay for Marvel’s Midnight Suns, showcasing how the game’s tactical RPG combat and exploration worked. However, it also revealed that character’s abilities would be based on cards with a sequence akin to a random card pack opening being showcased. This set off some alarm bells with regards to said cards being monetized in some way.

The game’s official Twitter has since clarified the same, confirming that there are no loot boxes or “related microtransactions to get more cards (i.e. Gamma Coils)”. There will character skins available to purchase but these are “purely cosmetic” and “do not affect game balance in any way.” As such, there seem to be a number of skins and outfits that can be unlocked by just playing the game.

Marvel’s Midnight Suns is in development for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Nintendo Switch for release in March 2022. Along with heading into combat, players can also explore and upgrade the Abbey while forging friendships with various heroes. Stay tuned for more gameplay and details in the coming days.
