Be a hero with Star Lord and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy in Eidos Montréal newest game. This Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy release date trailer premiered at Square Enix Presents Summer Showcase as part of E3 2021. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be released Oct. 26 2021.
According to the developer, the title sees the now-iconic Guardians team of Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon, and Groot trying to make a living out in space only to unintentionally cause some major problems of their own.
In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, players take the role of Peter Quill, Star-Lord, as he attempts to wrangle his unruly band of misfits. This essentially means that you play as Star-Lord specifically during combat and conversations, manipulating the flow of the game’s battles and dialogue by making decisions like do the Guardians sell Groot or Rocket to Lady Hellbender for cash? Or should Drax toss Rocket across a ravine? It’s also about more split-second decisions in the heat of battle like what moves should be used and when.
The trailer itself hits all the right notes. It’s funny, full of character, and features just enough action to have us excited about what it will be like to play as a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. They also managed to avoid a mistake they made with 2020’s Marvel’s Avengers in the character design. They’re unique to the game, yes, but they still look good. The Avengers game of course received backlash for not looking the way they did in the MCU, but the models just didn’t look right.
The gameplay that was shown looked really fun. The characters talked a little too much, but that was probably for trailer purposes so we could get a look into everyone’s personality. Right now, early signs show a game where the developers really understand what a Guardians of the Galaxy game should look and sound like. They even have licensed music sequences, which fits what we’ve seen in the films as well. And with an October release date, we’ll see how it all plays a lot sooner than many thought.
