The gameplay for Marvel’s Midnight Suns just got revealed, and it looks great! Many were wondering if it would be just another skin for Xcom, but it looks to be its own unique thing.
What is interesting in my opinion is that they are going for a card-based system for consumable abilities, potentially letting you deck out your playstyle per character. Different cards come with different abilities and modifiers, which seem unique to each superhero.
It might seem daunting at first for non-card-game players like me, but when you think about it, inherently most tactical games with abilities are based on card decks that control what actions are played under what condition under the hood, this just makes it more player-facing.
With the number of characters available, and the ability to craft your own superhero mixed with various cards that you can collect, this can easily be an addicting game for strategy fans if done right.
Midnight Suns is currently scheduled for launch in March 2022 for PC, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch.
