Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy release date has been announced at the Square Enix E3 2021 showcase.
In development at Eidos Montreal, the game will see you play as Star-Lord, leading the Guardians who are the bickering loveable bunch you imagine them to be, with one stand-out moment seeing them be referred to as the 'Gardeners of the Galaxy"
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is a third-person, purely single-player narrative adventure, with a focus on dialogue options and choices, both in the story and within combat. As the leader of the Guardians, Star-Lord will have to make a lot of decisions as to how to deal with various situations, which may cause friction between the Guardians.
As we saw from a gameplay video, in battle you'll be able to command the Guardians, choosing one of their specific movesets to unleash on enemies. It seems like some enemies will need to be dealt stagger damage before they can be taken down.
But, along with Star-Lord's own combat abilities - including elemental blasters and jet boots - he can also use a music boost for the Guardians for the remainder of the fight. Simply put, fighting along to Joan Jett's Bad Reputation and Bonnie Tyler's Holding Out For A Hero should be a compulsory part of any game.
We also found out from a developer's video (opens in new tab) also released during the show that it is also not connected to the MCU or the comics, and will be an original story. Pre-orders of the game will also come with a throwback DLC costume pack as well. If you're anything like us, you'll be getting to hold onto the feeling of saving the galaxy this October. Um, if they all get along that is.
