Marvel’s next big video game is coming from the comics’ supernatural Midnight Suns lineup. Marvel and Firaxis Games announced on Thursday that Marvel’s Midnight Suns is on the way with a March 2022 release date planned for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

The game is a tactical RPG and will be based around the famed Midnight Sons team that was assembled in the 1990s. That team included the lines of Ghost Rider, Blade, Doctor Strange, Hellstrom, Morbius, and other supernatural heroes as they teamed up to face Lilith, the Mother of Demons. The game will feature a similar storyline, as described below:

“The world as we know it is changed forever when Hydra, through a procedure of magic and science, manages to revive Lilith, Mother of Demons. In an effort to prevent Lilith from spreading her armies across the world, destroying everything in her path, The Avengers enlist the Midnight Suns to assist in their battle. This team of supernaturally powered heroes will need to work with the likes of Captain America, Iron-Man and Captain Marvel if they want to stop Lilith from resurrected Chthon, her all-powerful master.

However, the powers of The Avengers and the Midnight Suns won’t be enough. Only the Hunter, the child of Lilith, is capable of slaying the Mother of Demons. This original character will be the player’s window into the world of Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Creating the Hunter from scratch, players will need to use their ancient abilities to gather and control their team, issuing commands on the battlefield and forging bonds during downtime, all in an effort to smite their evil mother.”

Creative director Jake Solomon told CBR that the game will feature 12 Marvel heroes including Ghost Rider, Blade, Doctor Strange, Captain America, Iron Man, Wolverine, Magik, Captain Marvel, and Nico Minoru. The Hunter will be the surrograte character and players will be able to design the character (including appearance, skills, and abilities) as they see fit.
