Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy launch trailer premieres two weeks ahead of release

The game, not the movie!

Developed by Eidos and published by Square Enix, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a single-player game where players take control of Peter “Starlord” Quill as he commands his fellow guardians into battle. All the familiar faces will be involved, including Rocket, Gamora, Drax, and Groot, and possibly a few others once the game is released. Players will have the ability to make decisions that will determine the story’s outcome and possible consequences. 

This is an entirely new game that takes influences from the Marvel comic books and a few from the MCU movies. The plot of Guardians of the Galaxy takes place several years after a massive interstellar war that left its mark on the universe, which is still dealing with its devastating consequences. Among those interested in exploiting the situation are the Guardians of the Galaxy, led by Peter Quill / Star-Lord and comprising Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Groot, and Drax the Destroyer, who all hope to make quick money during their adventurous wanderings around the galaxy. However, in one of their scams, embroiled in a gamble between two team members, Star-Lord and his team inadvertently cause a small accident, which quickly sets in motion a series of catastrophic events that threaten the peace of the fragile universe unless they take responsibility for their actions and eradicate the threat.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy releases on October 26th, 2021, on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch (Cloud), GeForce Now, and PC.
