2K Games released a new trailer for Marvel’s Midnight Suns over the weekend, giving us a better look at the game’s combat system. The trailer is just under two minutes, but it shows off how you’ll go about entering the combat phase and working with the heroes at your disposal. You’ll choose who to bring into battle, give them different cards that represent the powers and abilities they can use, and how you’ll go about planning out moves and attacks in every round of combat. It’s a cool system that you can check out below, along with the recently released “Welcome to the Abbey” trailer. The game will drop for PC and consoles on December 2nd, 2022.
