After rumors and leaks, the next Marvel game has been revealed. Announced during Square Enix Presents, Marvel’s Guardians of The Galaxy is a single-player, third-person action-adventure game that has players play as Peter Quill, leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
The game is studio Eidos-Montreal’s fresh take on The Guardians of the Galaxy. As Peter Quill, players will have to make decisions that will have light-hearted to haunting repercussions that the game will react to. The story will follow Peter Quill, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot who have been together for less than a year. The group will have to deal with the fallout from something that they created.
“The Edios-Montreal 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 Edios-Montreal. “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.”
As Peter Quill, players are very agile and can slide and jump around all over the battlefield. He can also use his elemental blasters and will be able to coordinate with the other members of the Guardians of The Galaxy by issuing orders. Players will also have to engage in select player-choice-driven dialogue and interactions between Quill and the Guardians that further strengthens the bonds within this dysfunctional family.
“A distinct mix of sci-fi, family drama, and rock n’ roll attitude with an edgy aesthetic is the foundation for our Guardians franchise,” said Jay Ong, EVP and Head of Marvel Games. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Edios-Montreal 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 released on October 26, 2021, for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
