Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a new tactical RPG set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe, putting you face-to-face against demonic forces of the underworld as you team up with and live among the Midnight Suns, Earth’s last line of defense.

After centuries of sleep, Lilith, Mother of Demons, has been revived by Hydra through a twist of dark magic and science. Lilith stops at nothing to complete an ancient prophecy and bring back her evil master, Chthon. Pushed to the brink, the Avengers desperately look to fight fire with hellfire and enlist the help of the Midnight Suns—Nico Minoru, Blade, Magik and Ghost Rider—young heroes with powers deeply rooted in the supernatural, formed to prevent the very prophecy Lilith aims to fulfill. Together, they resurrect an ancient warrior—the Hunter, Lilith’s forsaken child and the only hero known to have ever defeated her. In the face of fallen allies and the fate of the world at stake, it will be up to you to rise up against the darkness!

From the legendary studio that changed strategy and tactics games forever comes a new title, offering cinematic tactical combat with a Super Hero flair, friendships to forge with iconic heroes, and an unforgettable adventure that dives deep into the darker side of Marvel.

Please remove that awful card system for this game. Just keep the XCOM style combat and the game will be successful.

Seriously! I was freaking out about the idea of XCOM with a Marvel coat of paint.....and then the card system was announced lol. I have a bad feeling that the game is just too far into development to completely get rid of a core mechanic of the game and overhaul the gameplay.

I would be more than happy to be wrong!

X-Com is cool but there are some serious flaw (not fixed at all by this card system mind you :D).
One thing I hate about X-Com is the ambush mechanics... Why can't I keep anyone "not" attacking stealth instead of having all of them revealed as soon as I take the first offensive action! Maybe they'll gimmi a card for that (just kidding). But overall I think the card system looks interesting; I'm not a huge fan of Marvel/DC/Superhero stuff (don't even know which hero belong to which universe) so I really see this more as a smash-n-up tactical games than a really serious one like X-Com; so card makes sense to me ahah

People want rid of the card system? It's what appeals to me. What doesn't is non-Midnight Sons in the Midnight Suns game. Where's Morbius?

I'm guessing they are including well-known Avengers to broaden the appeal and marketability as the Midnight Suns are as well known.

If they are going to delay into 2023 they should probably just drop last gen support. Switch is still current gen for Nintendo so keep that version, but no need to do an Xbox One or PS4 release. There will be north of 30 million PS5s and north of 20 million Xbox Series consoles on the market by the time this game eventually comes out, the industry has to move off the Xbox One and PS4 in 2023. It’s time
