Marvel’s Midnight Suns may be due to release soon following an official rating in South Korea.
As reported by Video Games Chronicle, Reddit user LongJonSiIlver spotted the rating (below) which pegs the XCOM-style game as suitable for those aged 15 years and over.
Games are usually only presented to ratings boards (like the ESRB and PEGI) once they’re in a complete or near-complete state so that an accurate assessment of suitability can be given, meaning Midnight Suns may almost be ready to be released.
The Game Rating and Administration Committee gave Midnight Suns its “suitable for 15 years and over” rating as it includes bad language and violence towards living things.
Combat in the game is largely similar to the rebooted XCOM series but players take on the role of The Hunter, a customisable character that works with superheroes including Iron Man, Ghost Rider, and Wolverine.
The inclusion of these characters was inspired by the Marvel comics and gameplay footage released in September last year gives fans a good look at how Midnight Suns will actually work, including its collectible card system.
It was announced in August 2020 by developer Firaxis Games with an original release date of March 2022, but a delay was later announced in November that pushed Midnight Suns to the latter half of the year.
It’s expected to release on practically every platform, including PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series, Nintendo Switch, and PC via both Steam and the Epic Games Store.
