Firaxis talks about the journey from XCOM to Marvel's Midnight Suns
Marvel at how it all came together
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is coming to Switch…at some point. While other platforms get the game this December, Switch owners will have to wait a bit longer. What are we to do until we find out the Switch release date? Learn more about how the game came to be, of course!
In the video above, IGN’s Akeem Lawanson talks with Jake Solomon and Garth DeAngelis of Firaxis Games about Marvel’s Midnight Suns and why the developers of XCOM found it difficult to simply placing superheroes in an XCOM-style game. As you may know, Marvel’s Midnight Suns has had a rather rough development cycle, with the dev team restarting the project a few times before they found the path ahead. Thankfully, it seems Firaxis managed to land on a combination of ideas that will please strategy and Marvel fans alike.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns is a new tactical RPG set in the darker side of the Marvel Universe. Team up - and live among – iconic heroes such as Iron Man, Wolverine, Ghost Rider, and Blade as you battle against demonic forces to stop Lilith, the Mother of Demons from resurrecting her master and bringing about the end of the world.
