When Marvel’s Midnight Suns was unveiled last week at Gamescom, developer Firaxis promised to share gameplay from the tactics RPG the following week. As expected, the gameplay trailer premiered today during an IGN live stream, showing off the combat system and characters who will appear in Midnight Suns. You can watch it below.
Firaxis also provided IGN with an extended gameplay walkthrough, which offers a brief summary of the story, including details about the Hunter, an all-new Marvel character who players get to customize to their liking. The video dives into the kinds of relationships you can build with established heroes and the game’s unique combat system.
Backing up what Firaxis said in interviews, the footage shows that the gameplay in Midnight Suns is distinct from what’s found in XCOM, the acclaimed tactics series Firaxis is best known for. Will those differences be for better or for worse? We’ll have to decide for ourselves when Marvel’s Midnight Suns launches on PC and every major console (including Nintendo Switch) in March.
