Marvel's Midnight Suns was announced today during gamescom: Opening Night Live with the debut of a stunning cinematic trailer featuring the dramatic resurrection of the Hunter, the game's protagonist and the first customizable original hero in the Marvel Universe. Set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe, Marvel's Midnight Suns is a tactical RPG from Firaxis Games that sees you fighting alongside and forging friendships with iconic Marvel heroes spanning The Avengers, X-Men, Runaways, and more.
Through a twisted marriage of magic and science, the nefarious force known as Hydra has revived Lilith, Mother of Demons, after centuries of slumber. Lilith will stop at nothing to complete an ancient prophecy and summon her evil master, Chthon. Pushed to the brink, the Avengers desperately look to fight fire with Hellfire by enlisting 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.
"We’re thrilled to team with Firaxis Games, who combine a history of building outstanding tactical games with an authentic love of Marvel’s supernatural side," said Bill Rosemann, Vice President of Creative at Marvel Games. "Marvel's Midnight Suns offers players the chance to not only live alongside legendary heroes, but to also experience an all-new, original story that dives deep into the monstrous shadows of the Marvel Universe.
