Marvel’s Midnight Suns has been rated in South Korea, suggesting that it could be released soon.
As spotted by a Reddit user, the game has received a “decision grade” of 15 years old, which is the equivalent of PEGI’s 16 rating.
That the game has now received a rating could suggest it’s close to getting a release date, despite neither 2K nor Firaxis giving the upcoming tactical RPG a firm date beyond the “second half of 2022”.
Marvel’s Midnight Suns was originally scheduled for release in March 2022 before it was delayed until the second half of 2022 late last year.
The game is being developed by Firaxis Games, the studio best known for the XCOM games. However, the game also features a relationship-building system similar to some other turn-based strategy games, most notably the Fire Emblem series.
Although Midnight Suns will feature a host of Marvel superheroes, the player will mainly control a new character called the Hunter, who is the “forsaken child” of Lilith, the “mother of demons”.
After Lilith is revived by Hydra, the Avengers revive the Hunter, because they’re the only one known to have defeated Lilith before.
Following the reveal, Firaxis’s creative director Jake Solomon said: “I grew up reading and loving Marvel comics. To be entrusted with these characters and their stories is an honour for me and the team.
“If you’re a Marvel fan, or an RPG fan, or a fan of tactics games, Marvel’s Midnight Suns will make these beloved characters come alive in a way you’ve never seen before.”
