Firaxis Games delayed Marvel’s Midnight Suns to late 2022 last year, but a leak today has revealed the date on which Marvel fans should be able to get their hands on the XCOM developer’s superhero tactical RPG. Marvel’s Midnight Suns will reportedly be released on October 6, and there will be three editions: Standard, Enhanced, and Legendary, the latter of which adds a Legendary Premium Pack with 23 skins and a season pass to the base game that grants access to four upcoming DLCs. Leaked box art that has since been taken down can also reveal that Spider-Man and Scarlet Witch will be making appearances in Midnight Suns, joining already known characters that include Doctor Strange, Magik, Iron Man, Wolverine, Ghost Rider, Blade, Captain America, Nico Minoru, and Captain Marvel. That leaves one character that’s yet to be revealed.

Interestingly, the Legendary Edition also features alternate cover art that replaces the good guys with bad guys: Lilith, Mother of Demons and chief antagonist, flanked by demonic versions of characters including Venom, the Hulk, and Sabretooth, who was previously shown in a gameplay demo(opens in new tab). Venom and Hulk are new, and it’s not a huge leap to assume that you’ll be throwing hands with these folks, and possibly other Marvel villains and heroes, as you quest to save the world. There’s another evil character on the cover who’s a bit harder to identify, but is possibly a demonic Scarlet Witch. It certainly wouldn’t be the first time Wanda’s allegiance was unclear.
