It’s been a long while since we last heard about Marvel’s Midnight Suns, which was originally set for release later this year. Now, thanks to leaks of box art and preorder info, it appears appropriately that the game will be arriving this October.
Originally scheduled for release this past March, Marvel’s Midnight Suns was announced back in November to have been pushed back to later this year. Journalist Nils Ahrensmeier had posted leaked box art of the game (which has subsequently been nailed for copyright claims), along with a release date of October 6. This hasn’t been confirmed by 2K or developer Firaxis, though fellow journalist Tom Henderson has backed up Ahrensmeier’s claims.
In addition, Midnight Suns will apparently have three separate editions for those looking to snag the game. Along with the Standard version, there’s the Enhanced Edition, which includes the base game & Enhanced Premium Pack (which features five premium skins). The Legendary Edition includes the base game, the Legendary Premium Pack (featuring 23 skins), and the Season Pass for Marvel’s Midnight Suns. The Season Pass includes four DLC packs, with each including a new playable hero, new missions, new enemies, and more.
The last bit of info involves the game’s “re-reveal”, which apparently will happen during Summer Games Fest, which kicks off on June 9.
In Marvel’s Midnight Suns, player-created ‘dark heroes’ join forces with the likes of Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Blade and Ghost Rider in a fight against Lilith, the Mother of Demons, as well as prevent the cataclysmic Darkhold from occurring.
