Just a few days after teasing her inclusion in the game, the latest gameplay showcase for Marvel’s Midnight Suns is all about the most powerful Avenger, detailing how Captain Marvel’s unique abilities and skillset will work in the game.
The gameplay showcase comes courtesy of 2K NextMaker Christopher Odd and tackles what promises to be one of the strongest heroes in the game. Unlike other heroes in Marvel’s Midnight Suns, Captain Marvel has her own mechanic designed specifically for her and her playstyle, the Binary Meter.
This meter can be built up the more you play Captain Marvel’s cards, and once it’s filled, Carol Danvers is able to enter the “Binary State,” giving her a boost in powers and doubling her attack power, making her a true force to be reckoned with. While in her Binary State, Captain Marvel will fall out of it if her block ever reaches zero, so players will want to keep an eye on that and make sure her block stays high as she engages with enemies.
Other attacks shown in the gameplay showcase include abilities like Cosmic Ray, a blast that Captain Marvel sends out to deal damage. However, the card can be upgraded to grant counter abilities, dealing damage to enemies that attack you for an entire turn, which could come in pretty handy if you find yourself surrounded by enemies. Captain Marvel’s passive ability, “Didn’t Feel a Thing,” increases the chance that you gain a counter ability on every enemy you knock out. This could be one of the better passive abilities in the game, as Captain Marvel’s tank-like abilities work extremely well with something like the ability to deal out extra damage.
It’s unclear who the next character showcase will be, but Midnight Suns has a pattern of rolling out teaser videos of superheroes before focusing on them in an in-depth fashion, so the next character teaser should give us an idea of who to expect a deep dive on.
