Marvel’s Midnight Suns will reappear at Summer Game Fest Live 2022

Marvel's Midnight Suns

The heroes get back in action

After some time away, an unlikely band of heroes is returning. Marvel’s Midnight Suns will return for tomorrow’s Summer Game Fest stream.

The news was shared on social media today, confirming a new look at Midnight Suns will be in the Summer Game Fest Live show. SGF kicks off on June 9 at 11 am. PT / 2 p.m. ET.

The social account for Midnight Suns is also doing a skin code giveaway for the game. Liking or retweeting this post will net you a code for a new hero being revealed during tomorrow’s event. I can verify it works, though it didn’t give me any hints as to who it’s for in the message.

Marvel’s Midnight Suns was revealed last year as the heavily rumored tactical Marvel game. It’s being developed by Firaxis, the makers of fine strategy titles like XCOM. It did get delayed out of the early stages of this year and into late 2022, though.

The story follows the Hunter, a customizable player avatar who has a grudge to settle with Lilith. The story takes a focus on the demonic and supernatural side of Marvel, with demons and corruption at the center. Fitting, then, that current confirmed crewmates include Blade and Ghost Rider alongside the likes of Iron Man, Captain Marvel, and Wolverine.

The summer of games

There have been a pretty hefty number of games already confirmed for the Summer Game Fest festivities. The next Call of Duty will show off its campaign during the show, and the JRPG take on a classic manga One Piece Odyssey will be there too.

HoYoverse, also known as Genshin Impact creators miHoYo, are showing off two games in the show. Both the strategy RPG Honkai: Star Rail and action-RPG Zenless Zone Zero are due to make an appearance.

Showrunner Geoff Keighley recently said that Summer Game Fest will be “primarily focused” on games that have already been announced, so set expectations around that. But Marvel’s Midnight Suns is one I’ve been eager to see again. The fall release schedule could use a few more firm dates.
