Marvel’s Midnight Suns features around 65,000 lines of voice dialogue, according to developer Firaxis.
In a video titled a “special message from Firaxis” posted on YouTube, the team described their favourite aspects of the upcoming tactical role-playing title.
Speaking in the video, lead engineer Will Miller said: “I think we ended up with something like 65,000 lines of voiced dialogue, over two hours of cinematics and, gosh, more branching choices than you could imagine.”

Midnight Suns is the first collaboration between Marvel and Firaxis, who are best known as the developers behind XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
Along with featuring various Marvel characters from X-Men to the Avengers, Marvel’s Midnight Suns includes a new superhero called ‘The Hunter’ who you can customise with different powers.
