While Marvel’s Midnight Suns has been a while in arriving, 2K and Firaxis are already setting up a post-launch season, with new characters and skins.
Originally set to launch earlier this year, developer Firaxis’ turn-based strategy take on Marvel Comics is finally almost here. The game features an all-star cast of Marvel superheroes from across the publisher’s universe.
Not just limited to the original comic book Midnight Sons, Midnight Suns will be fully stocked with Avengers, X-Men, and lots more. As it turns out, lots more, since there will also be a post-launch plan.
The season pass will serve up a 4-pack of new heroes, as well as a monster-sized 23 alternate skins (which will be usable at launch). But don’t just read about it here, let old Deadpool tell you all about it…
Each hero will lead a pack, but they won’t be the only inclusion. All 4 of the packs will also be loaded up with new story missions, as well as new upgrades for your in-game base, and “new skins and outfits”.
Here’s how it breaks down:
- DLC Pack #1 – Deadpool: A foulmouthed mercenary with a heart of gold, Deadpool has a penchant for grisly violence and lighthearted, fourth-wall breaking wisecracks;
- DLC Pack #2 – Venom: Spider-Man’s nemesis and one of the main game’s bosses, Venom turns playable hero in DLC #2, armed with all of the same symbiote attacks that once threatened the lives of the Midnight Suns;
- DLC Pack #3 – Morbius: One of the original comic book Midnight Sons, Morbius is an accomplished biochemist who, in an attempt to cure his own rare blood disease, turned himself into a living vampire;
- DLC Pack #4 – Storm: A powerful member of the X-Men, Storm has the ability to generate and manipulate wind, lightning, rain, and other types of weather to her will.
On top of all of that, there are a whole mess of (even more) skins. Wrapped up in The Legendary Premium Pack, are 23 new skins, which include:
- Blade’s Blade 1602
- Captain America’s Future Soldier
- Iron Man’s Iron Knight
- Spider-Man’s Demon Spider skin
Just a note on the above through, as the skins are usable on day one, but only if you’ve unlocked the appropriate character. You’ll do that through the game’s campaign of course, so it might take some time depending on who you’re looking to suit up.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is set for launch on December 2nd, 2022. Look for it for the Xbox Series X|S, PS5, and PC, with last-gen and a Switch version coming at some point down the line.
