Marvel’s Midnight Suns: Unlocking the Potential!

Marvel’s Midnight Suns

Marvel’s Midnight Suns took the gaming world by surprise in 2022, with rave reviews from both players and critics. Despite not reaching the desired sales figures, this sleeper hit holds immense untapped potential for a sequel. With enticing plot threads yet to explore and a vast roster of Marvel characters waiting to join the fun, a Marvel’s Midnight Suns 2 is a must!

Let’s delve into why Marvel’s Midnight Suns still has so much untapped potential and why it deserves a sequel.

Completing the Story Puzzle

The game’s DLC packs introduced exciting new characters like Deadpool, Venom, Morbius, and Storm, along with their respective story scenarios. However, these DLC missions felt disconnected from the main game, leaving us with unanswered questions. A sequel could tie up these loose ends and ensure a more cohesive story experience.

The Mysterious Dr. Doom

One of the most intriguing plot threads left unexplored involves the presence of Dr. Doom. In the game’s finale, he stumbles upon the discarded Darkhold, dismissing its previous owners as amateurs. Though hinted at as Deadpool’s employer, Dr. Doom doesn’t play a significant role in the DLC, leaving us longing for more of Marvel’s beloved villain. It would be a shame if a sequel doesn’t unleash the full potential of such an iconic character.

Expanding the Hero Roster

Besides resolving dangling plotlines, Marvel’s Midnight Suns 2 offers room for numerous Marvel heroes to join the roster. Even with the addition of four DLC characters, there is still space for fan favorites. Imagine Gambit’s kinetic card abilities adding an electrifying twist to the card-based combat system. Moon Knight, with his connection to the Egyptian god Khonshu, seamlessly fits the game’s themes. And hey, even Spider-Man hints at a possible alliance with the Midnight Suns!

Building on Success

While it’s disappointing that Midnight Suns didn’t meet its sales expectations, it didn’t dampen the game’s exceptional plot and character development. The unique twist on strategy RPG gameplay offered a fresh and exciting experience that begs to be expanded upon in a sequel. With a new batch of heroes wielding diverse abilities, Marvel’s Midnight Suns 2 has the potential to take everything that made the first game great and elevate it to new heights.

Marvel’s Midnight Suns is currently available on PC, PS5, and Xbox Series X/S.
