Marvel’s Midnight Suns unveiled Ghost Rider gameplay in an official showcase.
In a six-minute gameplay showcase on the game’s official YouTube channel, Christopher Odd described Robbie Reyes’ Ghost Rider playstyle in Marvel’s Midnight Suns. “Ghost Rider’s playstyle is primarily focused on high damage, but many of his cards have a trade-off that either costs his own health or cards in your hand,” he said. “He also has his own soul meter to fill, and it encourages you to knock out Ghost Rider himself.”
midnight suns previously posted a Ghost Rider Hero Spotlight to tease his gameplay. The Marvel Comics character joins a roster including Blade, Captain America, Captain Marvel, Doctor Strange, Iron Man, Magik, Nico Minoru, Scarlet Witch, Spider-Man, and Wolverine. In addition, midnight suns allows players to create a fully customizable character called the Hunter, the child of the game’s villain – Lilith, the mother of demons.
In addition, midnight suns released the first in a series of prequel shorts to give players a glimpse into the mysterious history of Lilith. Transported to the 1600s, viewers learn that Lilith lost her husband to a devastating plague that killed most of the village. The short, titled “The Salem Sisters,” is just one of five Marvel plans to release ahead of the game’s launch date.
While the 13th character on the game’s roster is still unknown, creative director Jake Solomon recalled the difficult selection process. “I honestly think we had a roster of 20 or 25 characters. It was like, ‘We can’t do this.’ Once we started designing the number of builds we needed, we were like, ‘That’s not possible,'” Solomon said. “We worked with Marvel, but they never said, ‘You have to have this person. You can’t have that person. It was really more internal — that’s really the list we want. [Marvel] calls it a “universe game”.
In addition to Ghost Rider, midnight suns also presented previously x-menit is magic in a six-minute gameplay video, also narrated by Odd. Odd remarked that Magik uses “its portals to move enemies, allies, and objects around the map.” Additionally, the video also showed off Magik’s “Dark Child” heroic ability, which makes her invulnerable for one turn.
