Firaxis Games and 2K have begun a new series on YouTube comprising character gameplay showcases for their upcoming strategy title, Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Two new videos have been shared, highlighting Iron Man’s and Spider-Man’s combative capabilities.
Spider-Man expectedly excels at speed, meaning he earns turns more frequently than the other characters. He also often utilizes the environment to his advantage. One of his crucial cards is Opportunist, allowing Spider-Man to initiate two environmental attacks at no Heroism cost and two extra moves during that same turn to finalize positioning.
Iron Man’s gameplay style revolves around the Redraw mechanic, which replaces currently useable cards on hand with other viable ones. When Iron Man performs this mechanic on a card, they become buffed, so he can potentially fulfill any combat role. One of his key cards is “Leave It to Me,” which generates two Iron Man cards, free Heroism, and additional Redraws during that turn.

Lastly, Hero History videos and Spotlight trailers for Iron Man and Spider-Man were shared, viewable below:
Marvel’s Midnight Suns has players assume the role of “The Hunter,” a customizable superhero who joins the crew. Further, players can play as other heroes, including Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, Blade, and more. Combat is turn-based, borrowing elements of the developer’s XCOM series, where players will guide units through environments to take down enemies.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is set to release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store on October 7, 2022.
