Marvel just announced another game coming out soon.
Announced at Gamescom, Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be the latest installment from the popular comic book company. Midnight Suns is considered a tactical strategy RPG that delves into the darker side of the Marvel universe when heroes like Ghost Rider, Blade and Magik battle Lilith, the mother of demons.
With the popularity of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and admittedly lighter content, Marvel takes the opportunity to explore the other side that is unlikely to make it into the movies.
Here’s everything we know so far.

There aren’t a lot of gameplay details surrounding the latest Marvel release. According to Nibellion, that’ll be released in about a week on September 1st. It will have a customizable protagonist who will live among the other Marvel heroes like Wolverine, Blade, and others.
Early images from the game show a decidedly darker tone for the characters, even those like Doctor Strange, who will appear in both the MCU and Midnight Suns.
The game will reportedly be based on a 1992 Marvel comic book crossover run about the rise of the Midnight Sons and tell the story of Lilith, the main antagonist of the upcoming game. Doctor Strange leads the formation of a team of darker heroes to stop them.
The in-game team will feature several fan-favorite characters including Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, Blade, Ghost Rider, Captain Marvel, and Doctor Strange.
Midnight Suns is slated for March 2022, so the release is imminent. Until then, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, also recently announced (October 2021), will be released.
The game is supported on all gaming platforms except mobile devices. It will also be on some last-gen consoles as well as next-gen consoles. Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and Series X, PlayStation 4 and 5, and PC users will all be able to purchase the game as soon as it is released.
