Marvel's Midnight Suns: The Hunter Gameplay Trailer Released

Of late, Marvel's Midnight Suns developer Firaxis Games and 2K Games has been sharing more information about the video game's all-new hero and protagonist, the Hunter. As has been pointed out multiple times in the promotional material, the Hunter is apparently the first time that an official Marvel hero has been fully customizable in a video game like this. As such, the new gameplay trailer for the Hunter details just how that impacts the title mechanically.

More specifically, the new gameplay trailer indicates that the Hunter has three separate and distinct ability branches, which is different from any of the other Marvel's Midnight Suns characters that have been highlighted so far. There's Power, Light, and Dark. That makes for 30 different ability cards and three different ultimate abilities. You can check out the whole gameplay trailer focusing on the Hunter for yourself embedded below:

It is worth noting that the video also includes a look at what appears to be how the Hunter first gets involved with the story of Marvel's Midnight Suns as well. It seems that their revival is due in part to the magicks of Doctor Strange and Nico Minoru, for example. Exactly when that happens and what it means remains to be seen.

Broadly speaking, Marvel's Midnight Suns is currently set to release for the PlayStation 5PlayStation 4Xbox Series XXbox Series SXbox OneNintendo Switch, and PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store at some point before March 31, 2023.
