In the ongoing arc for Marvel’s Midnight Suns, it was not too long before uncertainty fell for the game. Despite the game being announced back in August last year, the title did have a slated release date for spring 2022. However, the game inching close to that release was pushed and later followed by an undate timeframe leaving fans questioning how near it is to releasing.
But in September, the new date was officially unveiled. In that, Marvel’s Midnight Suns would officially arrive this December ahead of 2023. So all now that remains is the post-launch plans for the game as many would expect. Typically, a season pass-structured stream of content is how most titles are handled following it hitting store shelves.
And that is what is on the way. In a 2K press release, the publisher discloses Deadpool, Venom, Morbius, and Storm are confirmed to be add-ons for the season pass which will release periodically. You can read the list in order below:
DLC Pack #1 – Deadpool: A foulmouthed mercenary with a heart of gold, Deadpool has a penchant for grisly violence and lighthearted, fourth-wall breaking wisecracks;
DLC Pack #2 – Venom: Spider-Man’s nemesis and one of the main game’s bosses, Venom turns playable hero in DLC #2, armed with all of the same symbiote attacks that once threatened the lives of the Midnight Suns;
DLC Pack #3 – Morbius: One of the original comic book Midnight Sons, Morbius is an accomplished biochemist who, in an attempt to cure his own rare blood disease, turned himself into a living vampire;
DLC Pack #4 – Storm: A powerful member of the X-Men, Storm has the ability to generate and manipulate wind, lightning, rain, and other types of weather to her will.
From the original reveal of Marvel’s Midnight Suns, it did draw some odd inspirations for its game. In that, the announcement focused on heroes like Iron Man & Spider-Man as featured protagonists for the title. Howbeit, other characters that are accurately in the group like Dr Strange & Blade were there. Thankfully, other original Midnight Suns members like Morbius will be in it as well later on.
Recently, Marvel announced a new multi-title collaboration with Electronic Arts. This new arrangement will provide roughly three titles with Electronic Arts at the helm. The deal already includes the previously-announced Iron Man project being developed by Star Wars Squadrons & Dead Space Remake team EA Motive. You can read the full report by heading here.
