Another Disney game by Square Enix (remember that they own Marvel), but this time, it’s not going to be a live service title.
They openly said this: „Game Model: Premium Single player / No online mode / No downloadable content / No microtransactions.” So it’s going to be the polar opposite of Marvel’s Avengers (which is an online-only, live service title…). Funnily, Eidos Montreal worked on that game before putting the Guardians of the Galaxy game together.
Here is an overview of the game, via Square Enix: „Fire up a wild ride across the cosmos with a fresh take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In this third-person action-adventure game, you are Star-Lord, and thanks to your bold yet questionable leadership, you have persuaded an oddball crew of unlikely heroes to join you. Some jerk (surely not you) has set off a chain of catastrophic events, and only you can hold the unpredictable Guardians together long enough to fight off a total interplanetary meltdown. Use Element Blasters, tag-team beat downs, jet boot-powered dropkicks, nothing’s off-limits. If you think it’s all going to plan, you’re in for a world of surprises, with the consequences of your actions guaranteed to keep the Guardians on their toes. In this original Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy story, you’ll cross paths with powerful new beings and unique takes on iconic characters, all caught in a struggle for the galaxy’s fate. It’s time to show the universe what you’re made of. You got this. Probably.
[…] With the Guardians fighting at your side, call the shots and overwhelm your opponents with signature attacks. Meanwhile, the consequences of your decisions will range from light-hearted to downright unexpected as your journey unfolds. […] Turn up the all-star 80s mixtape and get ready to kick it.
[…] You’re the only thing holding the unpredictable Guardians together, so you’ll have to get better at this leadership thing fast. With this offbeat approximation of a family at your side, there will be tears and laughter as you set about tearing into the cosmos together. Whatever’s waiting around the next corner, you know it’s going to be a riot,” the publisher wrote.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, a third-person action-adventure title, will launch on October 26 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The Cosmic Deluxe Edition will include a steelbook, a mini digital artbook, two Sun-Lord and City-Lord skins, as well as the digital soundtrack called The Hits.
