Midnight Suns Ghost Rider Gameplay Showcase Features Big Attacks
Next to a Trailer which dropped a few days ago, Marvel’s latest gameplay showcase midnight suns is all about Robbie Reyes, also known as The Ghost Rider.
The gameplay showcase is once again courtesy of 2K NextMaker Christopher Odd and dives into what makes Ghost Rider one of the biggest and baddest damage dealers in all of gaming. Due to the nature of the attacks and Ghost Riders abilities, its damage is some of the highest you’ll find when you get the chance to experience Midnight Suns. However, in keeping with his character, these attacks sometimes come at a potentially large cost.
Many of Robbie’s cards have trade-offs, essentially requiring you to sacrifice cards in your hands or, sometimes, your own health to land an attack. On top of that, Robbie also has his own “Soul Meter” which he can fill up by getting knockouts on enemies. According to the Gameplay Showcase, Ghost Rider also works best when able to spend a lot of Heroism, and is best paired with a character that can generate a ton of Heroism, or can heal frequently since Ghost Rider will need constant support when dealing attacks.
When it comes to abilities, Ghost Rider also sports some of the most outlandish in the game. “Immolate,” for example, will turn enemies stunned by Ghost Rider into ticking time bombs, which will explode after a few turns and deal double damage in their area. of effect. As mentioned earlier, Ghost Rider also has a “Soul Meter” to fill, which grants “Drain Soul” cards when you do. These cards, which are stackable, have lifesteal abilities and, when chained together, can bind enemies together for massive damage. However, you will need to maintain a good amount of knockouts and heroism to do so, making it a risky game, but with a huge payoff.
Ghost Rider’s other abilities include his heroic ability, “Judgement”, which consumes 25% of your current health, but deals damage at a rate of 2x all the health you’ve swapped. This basically means that the more health you lose, the more damage you can cause. Another heroic ability, “Hell Ride”, sees Robbie riding his ride and downing enemies in a line for massive damage. However, the trade-off here is that your entire hand must be discarded. This makes it an interesting card, as you can temper it to use as your last attack, or just go all out and risk it taking early damage.
It’s unclear who the next character showcase will be, but midnight suns has a history of rolling out superhero teaser videos before focusing on them in depth, so the next character teaser should give us an idea of who to expect for a deep dive.
