Should you have been enthusiastic about final week’s announcement of a tactical RPG online game starring Marvel’s superheroes, excellent news—you’re going to proceed to be excited! 2K Video games has revealed the Midnight Suns’ first gameplay trailer, which pits an unlikely assortment of Avengers, X-Males, and extra towards demons…from hell. However why fear about that once you’re sharing a communal lavatory with Ghost Rider?

Because the trailer reveals, as soon as your customizable character is awoken by Marvel’s most interesting to cease the demon queen Lillith, you all transfer into an HQ known as the Abbey the place everybody simply… hangs out collectively? I imply, have a look at that image on high: Physician Unusual is studying a e-book. Robbie Reyes (the present Ghost Rider) and Runaways’ sorceress Nico Minoru are chilling on the bar. Captain Marvel is checking her cellphone. Guys—a demon invasion is at present going down, and Captain Marvel is checking her cellphone.

That is superior, so far as I’m involved. Apparently, you received’t simply hear small snippets of dialog along with your roommates in-between missions—the opposite roommates being Iron Man, Wolverine, Physician Unusual, Captain America, Blade, and the X-Males’s Magik—however growing relationships with them over the course of the sport, which appears to be essential to enhancing your arsenal of strikes and powers. Look, I ought to simply allow you to watch it (right here’s a briefer model if you happen to’re quick on time):

The concept of “leveling up” by taking walks within the yard with Tony Stark and doing yoga with Magik sounds fabulous. As for the fight itself, it appears as thrilling as any straight-up motion online game. I’m a bit cautious of how the participant’s strikes and assaults are outlined by a random assortment of playing cards, however the best way you need to use the surroundings to your benefit provides a layer to the tactical gameplay I wasn’t anticipating. Should you’re questioning why the hell this recreation is named Midnight Suns, by the best way, it’s as a result of it’s based mostly on a moderately obscure Marvel comedian sequence from the ‘90s the place a bunch of considerably lesser-known heroes fought Lilith and her demon military. Don’t fear about it.

Midnight Suns is at present set for launch subsequent March.
