Unleashing Marvel's Midnight Suns: Why It's a Must-Play on Epic Games

It’s rare for a game to drop in the neverending deluge of gaming that you have to try. That it is free right now on the Epic Games Launcher is just the sweetener. It is Marvel’s Midnight Suns – a tactical RPG where you get to play as a Punisher. (Worth it for that alone, right?) Besides your usual superhero, you get to add a ton of others to your roster, including Wolverine and Blade. It’s Gotham vs Midnight Suns, and a lot of fun too. It’s a fantastic mix of turn-based action, gory Marvel mayhem and deep tactical play. I’ve been playing this game constantly and its free right now on the Epic Games Launcher. And that’s what the Gaming Flash Drive is all about, demonstrating that you can free high-quality games right now on your preferred launcher and join your host, Gary, in the battles.

A Hassle Worth Embracing: Epic's Free Gaming Gift

With many gamers being signed up to a single game launcher for years on end (Steam in my case) the opportunity to get a good deal on a game system other than your usual chosen one presents it’s rare opportunity; I will buy the game on Epic Games because it’s a hell of a deal. Not that Marvel’s Midnight Suns is only about a deal to expand your game library for free. It’s a chance to visit a world that is a mix of comic book and strategy game set in a novel and exciting way.

DECKBUILDING: A Twist on Tactical Gameplay

Marvel’s Midnight Suns was greeted with gists of enthusiasm and scepticism when it was announced, largely because its style was so unlike conventional tactical genre cousins like X-COM, with its fusion of deckbuilding and strategic turn-based combat. It’s adventurous, and refreshing, in an overcrowded tactics RPG space, and has since been cited as a novel and ingenious concept by several of its critics and reviewers. Still, it didn’t get the attention it deserved, and that’s why its free availability represents a timely opportunity to try and sate that interest.

The Art of Strategic Card Play

It forces you to think strategically not just at the tactical level but also at the more complex level of how to use the cards that model the mechanics that drive the game itself. Each character brings specific powers to the table – often embodied in cards that you have to decide whether and when to play. This adds layers and layers of depth to the otherwise largely surface-level genre, such that each battle is a fresh puzzle to work out every time.

Beyond the Battlefield: A Comic Book Experience

It isn’t just its gameplay that makes Marvel’s Midnight Suns a unique entry into the video game superhero race. What makes the game unique is the fact that, while it is not afraid to utilise some of what made the cinematic universe so popular, it pays equal tribute to the Marvel comic universe of yore. The game allows the gamer to play in a world that feels ripped from the pages of their favourite comic books, characters and all. Offering an engaging narrative and character development, the game provides a richer and more engaging Marvel experience than many might expect from a video game.
