GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY: New Details, Concept Art, And Screenshots Revealed For The Upcoming Video Game
Last night, Square Enix revealed its new Guardians of the Galaxy game, and we now have more details, concept art, and screenshots that point to this title being way more visually exciting than Avengers.
Square Enix finally revealed its Guardians of the Galaxy video game during an E3 presentation last night, and while fans appear to be on the fence about this collaboration with Eidos-Montréal, it's hard not to be intrigued.
Players will only be able to take control of Star-Lord, though the rest of the Guardians - Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot - will be fighting by your side. Based on the gameplay footage that's been shared online, that should still be pretty good fun, and we now have a few more details.
It's said that we'll be tasked with mastering Peter Quill's Element Blasters, all while calling on the unique abilities of each Guardian. As the team's leader, "players will engage in select player-choice driven dialogue and interactions between Quill and the Guardians that further strengthens the bonds within this dysfunctional family."
We can also confirm that Guardians of the Galaxy will include a killer soundtrack, including some original tunes and the 1980s hits we heard in yesterday's footage reveal.
"The Eidos-Montréal team is honored to have the opportunity to work on such an iconic franchise alongside our trusted collaborators at Marvel Entertainment," said David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. "Our teams are known for revisiting IPs and bringing their own twists and craft to the stories and the art surrounding them. As you will experience, it’s no different for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy."
"A distinct mix of sci-fi, family drama, and rock n’ roll attitude with an edgy aesthetic is the foundation for our Guardians franchise," adds Jay Ong, EVP and Head of Marvel Games. "We are thrilled to collaborate with Eidos-Montréal knowing they are the team that can deliver on this core promise. The team’s laser-focused vision for our beloved band of misfits shines in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. We are excited for our fans to play it this October."
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will be available on PlayStation 5 console, PlayStation 4 console, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles, and PC digital, and streaming via GeForce NOW on October 26, 2021. Check out some new screenshots and concept art from the game below:
