Firaxis Games and 2K drops Marvel’s Midnight Suns Darkness Falls trailer just a few hours ago on the Marvel Entertainment channel in YouTube.

With a slated release date of October 7, 2022, the game imagery is completely astounding.

In the game, players get to create their own superpowered character by the name “The Hunter”. The character can be female or male with a selection of 40 different abilities. The game’s release date is slotted for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and Microsoft Windows via Steam and the Epic Games Store. On a later date, Nintendo Switch will have its own version.

Eurogamer.net posted an article about the game August last year. Initially, the studio described the game as a “tactical RPG”. They revealed the information during the Gamescom’s Opening Night Live stream August 2021. Director Jake Solomon answered various queries on gameplay, mechanics and even storyline of the game.

Based on the 90s comic book series Rise of the Midnight Sons the game loosely retells the story brining in the Marvel characters. Apparently, Hydra revived Lilith who raises the dead and becomes the main threat to the Avengers. Iron Man, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Dr. Strange, and Wolverine showed up in the featured trailer at the time. They then enlisted the aid of supernatural Marvel heroes. In turn, these include Nico Minoru, Blade, Magik, and Ghost Rider among others. 12 heroes are available for the game in addition to the customizable “The Hunter” who happens to be Lilith’s offspring.

Lilith, the Mother of Demons, aims to bring forth Chthon. In order to thwart her ultimate goal, the heroes will have to work with The Hunter who is the only person to have ever defeated Lilith in the past.

The new trailer showed a scene where Lilith pursued Venom and brought the symbiote to her side of the team. The trailer later featured Spider-Man fighting off opponents with a team of heroes. Lilith appears with her team that includes a turned Scarlet Witch, Venom and even Hulk.

In terms of story, Solomon has already stated that the Midnight Sons comics are his favorite ever, thus:

We really wanted to retell this story, because, one: it had never been [re]told, and it’s been, you know, 30 years now. The story’s awesome, it had a lot of characters that players would not be familiar with. And it also allowed us to introduce popular characters, but pull them into a side of the Marvel Universe where they’re never seen, which is the supernatural, dark supernatural stuff. And so, it was really important for us to tell a story that people weren’t familiar with, have heroes that people weren’t familiar with, have a villain that people weren’t familiar with, and then, [regarding] the heroes that we all love, make sure that they go to a part of the Marvel universe where they’re typically not seen.
