This week, Marvel’s Midnight Suns is expected but barely making headlines. This turn-based strategy game, created by the XCOM studio Firaxis, features well-known comic book characters and has shown some early promise. It’s launch trailer time now that the title is almost here after a few delays.
With a dramatic plot setup in which Doctor Strange loses his headquarters, the Sanctum Sanctorum, it will set the mood. In order to defeat the remaining opposition, Lilith, a demonic sorceress, has been revived and is brainwashing both heroes and villains. The Hunter, Lilith’s child who previously put an end to her evil, must be raised from the dead if there is any hope.
Even though some of the line delivery is pretty hammy, it’s a fun trailer that does a good job of setting the scene. Although there isn’t any actual gameplay per se, we have seen plenty of it in character-specific videos for characters like Ghost Rider, Captain America, and Iron Man.
