‘Marvel’s Midnight Suns’ Details the Origin of its Original Character: The Hunter
There has been a palpable excitement for the long-awaited video game that will explore the famed supernatural team, as Marvel’s Midnight Suns detail the origin of this original character.
It has been one of the biggest investments of the Marvel universe over the past five years, as its presence in the world of video games has only grown.
Starting with Insomniac Games’ Marvel’s Spider-Man, the open-world Peter Parker-driven adventure game proved to be not only one of the biggest releases of that year but one of the best video games to ever hit current consoles.
That was only then carried over by the work of Square Enix on Marvel’s Avengers, a game that was more mission-based but focused on users being able to play almost all of the Avengers that you could name.
And now, there is the impending arrival of a video game developed by Firaxis Games and 2K that will focus on one of Marvel’s most famous supernatural teams, the Midnight Suns.
A group in the source material that comprises some of the most powerful supernaturally based characters that the Marvel Universe can offer, this game seems to take that idea a full step forward.
Nice to meet you, Hunter!
