Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy video game announced
As part of its game showcase at E3 2021, Square Enix and developer Eidos-Montreal officially unveiled Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, an all-new video game featuring Marvel characters that will be released on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and PC later this year on October 26. According to the developer, the title sees the now iconic team of Star-Lord Guardians, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot trying to make a living in space to unintentionally cause their own major problems.
In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, players take on the role of Peter Quill, Star-Lord, as he attempts to argue with his unruly gang of misfits. This essentially means that you play as Star-Lord specifically during combat and conversation, manipulating the flow of in-game battles and dialogue by making decisions like Guardians to sell Groot or Rocket to Lady Hellbender for money? Or should Drax throw Rocket through a ravine? It’s also about making more split-second decisions in the heat of the moment, like which moves to use and when.

The whole principle of “playing as a Star-Lord” seems to continue throughout the title and developer Eidos-Montreal has confirmed that it is specifically a single-player video game and that it is not. there was no multiplayer. It’s a little unclear if the rest of the Guardians lineup will change throughout the video game, as Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal have shown several other popular Guardians-related characters like, say, Mantis.
“I don’t want to spoil anything” Guardians of Marvel GalaxyMary DeMarle’s Executive Narrative Director said when asked how important these supporting characters are. “I’m the kind of person who doesn’t want to go to the movies and know what I see before going there. But I’ll say Mantis is my favorite character in this whole game. You know Mantis from the movies, but then, yes. you dive into the comics, you’ll see a completely different take on Mantis. And we’ve found our version of her which I think is unique. “
As stated above, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is slated for release on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and PC later this year on October 26. It’s available for pre-order right now wherever such things are sold, and pre-ordering the title grants an outfit pack full of returning outfits for the Guardians.
