It was previously rumored that XCOM developer Firaxis Games was working a new game with some of Marvel’s most popular characters. Those have turned out to be true.

During today’s Gamescom event, 2K and Firaxis unveiled Marvel’s Midnight Suns, a new tactical RPG featuring a lineup of iconic superheroes from the pages of Marvel Comics and various live-action adaptations. They include Iron Man, Wolverine, Blade, and Ghost Rider.

“Through a twisted marriage of magic and science, the nefarious force known as Hydra has revived Lilith, Mother of Demons, after centuries of slumber,” a story description reads. “Lilith will stop at nothing to complete an ancient prophecy and summon her evil master, Chthon.”

“Pushed to the brink, the Avengers desperately look to fight fire with Hellfire by enlisting the help of the Midnight Suns – Nico Minoru, Blade, Magik, and Ghost Rider – young heroes with powers deeply rooted in the supernatural, formed to prevent the very prophecy Lilith aims to fulfill. Together, they resurrect an ancient warrior – the Hunter, Lilith’s forsaken child and the only hero known to have ever defeated her.”

Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Windows PC via Steam and Epic Games Store on March 2022. Its first gameplay footage will premiere on September 1 at 11:30 a.m. PT.

“We’re thrilled to team with Firaxis Games, who combine a history of building outstanding tactical games with an authentic love of Marvel’s supernatural side,” said Bill Rosemann, Vice President of Creative at Marvel Games. Marvel’s Midnight Suns offers players the chance to not only live alongside legendary heroes, but to also experience an all-new, original story that dives deep into the monstrous shadows of the Marvel Universe. Darkness Falls. Rise Up!”

  1. I don’t know how I feel about this right now… Xcom is good so I will wait and see before saying no but that title art here is not inspiring much.
