Midnight Fight Express is coming soon to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and the Nintendo Switch. On Day One, it becomes available on Xbox Game Pass.
Midnight Fight Express: Gameplay
Midnight Fight Express is a harsh and aggressive brawler with a top-down, occasionally isometric camera angle. You battle waves of enemies in this game just like you would in an action movie. Eric Jacobus, a motion artist, and stunt actor has captured every move you make as you punch, dodge, kick, counter, and deal finishers to numerous adversaries.
The player will have the opportunity to level up and gain power along the journey. The user can advance to new moves and create their distinctive combat style using a skill tree. Become the best hand-to-hand fighter by stringing together combos.
You can also rely on reliable weapons like knives, axes, shotguns, and explosives if things go tough. The player faces a challenging task with a total of 41 hand-crafted levels. And if you succeed in finishing every level, well, the world is truly your oyster. Customize everything, including the character’s appearance, moveset, weaponry, and enemies.
To allow players to experience the game in different ways, the game includes a variety of difficulty settings.

Midnight Fight Express’s PC release date is unknown, as the Steam platform only lists the release date without a countdown. Just keep visiting the shop page to see when it goes on sale, as it will probably debut at some point between the Xbox and PlayStation release schedules.
Although there doesn’t appear to be a preloading option, the game will probably just require a tiny download, especially compared to Saints Row, which launches the same day and weighs 44 GB.
