Square Enix has kicked off its E3 conference by confirming the existence of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which is being developed by Eidos Montreal. The game is a single player, story driven title. You will play as Peter Quill, aka Star Lord, where you will tackle going through missions and keeping the team together. The game will react to the decision you make as Peter with the rest of the team reacting. In the game the team has been together for less than a year.
Guardians of the Galaxy is telling its own story and is not linked to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in anyway. The gameplay trailer (below) shows Peter making decisions as the rest of the team bickers. In this video, you have to decide on whether to sell Groot or Rocket in an attempt to settle a debt, and then try to bust them out afterwards. The footage then dives into the Guardians landing on a planet as they go to make the sale, though the planet is not a friendly one. The combat shows that Peter has special abilities and when activated some classic music plays, kind of mimicking the way music hits in the movies. The footage also shows that Peter can change his mind on decisions made, which will also impact how the team reacts to you and how missions unfold.
Marvel Guardians of the Galaxy game is set to be released on PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC. It will be available on October 26th 2021. and anyone who pre-orders will get a throwback costumes pack.
