Marvel’s Midnight Suns is expected to be released on October 7th, and in the build up developer Firaxis Games are releasing character spotlight videos for the roster. The latest video is focused on Doctor Strange, giving a glimpse of some the powers he will be able to use in the fights ahead. Obviously, as Sorcerer Supreme his attacks are magic, and by the looks of the footage the majority will be ranged attacks.

In November 2021, Marvel’s Midnight Suns was delayed to the second half of 2022 due to more development time being needed. At the time creative director Jake Solomon and Senior Franchise Producer Garth DeAngelis wrote, “We decided to push our launch because we need more time to make the best game possible. We believe in our creative vision for Marvel’s Midnight Suns and want to do justice in delivering an unforgettable adventure set in the supernatural side of Marvel. These extra months will be used to add more story, cinematics and overall polish and will be essential in helping making our vision a reality.”

Back in June, it was confirmed that both Spider-Man and Venom would also be in Marvel’s Midnight Suns. Spider-Man will be on the side of the heroes, while a corrupted Venom will be part of the villain’s side. The game is an adaptation of 1992’s Rise of the Midnight Sons cross-over event in the Marvel comics universe and will feature twelve playable characters, some familiar, some less so. Magik from the X-Men and Nico Minoru from the Runaways are two such characters. More prominent characters include Captain America, and  Wolverine. Brand new superhero The Hunter, who is resurrected to fight against Lilith, mother of demons, is also part of the game. Marvel’s Midnight Suns will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S. Xbox One, Switch, and PC.
