Marvel’s Midnight Suns has been releasing character-specific trailers for a while, detailing the stories of the Marvel heroes featured in them as well as the specific gameplay of each, like the recent one for Spider-Man. As expected, new heroes continue to be honored by developer Firaxis Games and 2K, and the newest just happens to be Doctor Strange.
These gameplay trailers are helpful because combat in Marvel’s Midnight Suns might be a little unusual for anyone used to Marvel-branded action-adventure video games like Marvel’s Spiderman. Instead of, Marvel’s Midnight Suns features turn-based combat where players use ability cards with a random hand of cards to start. Doctor Strange, in particular, appears to be a support character who can return certain spent ability cards to the player’s hand in addition to boosting allies and more.
