Marvel's Midnight Suns: Spider-Man Gameplay Trailer Released

Marvel's Midnight Suns developer Firaxis Games and 2K have released a new trailer detailing Spider-Man gameplay in the title. This is just the latest in a series of gameplay deep dives for Marvel's Midnight Suns, with previous installments going over Iron Man gameplay and Captain America gameplay. Given that combat plays out a bit differently in Marvel's Midnight Suns from many other modern superhero video games, these will likely be handy resources for anyone unfamiliar with the game's mechanics.

More specifically, Marvel's Midnight Suns combat has players using different ability cards with a randomized hand of cards at the beginning of any given battle. Spider-Man, specifically, has a specialty called "Distributed Damage" that allows him to attack across the battlefield without using multiple actions. He can also use environmental objects without spending the Heroism resource.

"Forced to unite in opposition to Lilith, Mother of Demons and parent to the Hunter, the Midnight Suns must rise up against the darkness in the face of fallen allies and with the fate of the world at stake."
