The partnership between Marvel and Square Enix continues to blossom. Along with the growth of Marvel’s Avengers, Eidos Montreal is hard at work on a whole new action/adventure for the publisher – and they’re calling upon the Guardians!
Yep, Guardians of the Galaxy is returning to gaming for the first time since Telltale Games tried to cover the team in a narrative adventure a few years ago. It’s a third-person action/adventure game that features the whole squad – including Star-Lord (well, Peter), Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon and good ol’ Groot. For the most part, though, you’ll play as Star-Lord, using his blasters and maneuvering to take on adversaries.
The game will feature various characters from the Guardians Marvel universe, with a story put together by comic book writer Dan Abnett. It looks like it’ll be a lot of fun – and it’s actually coming this year, on October 26th, for Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles and PC. And unlike Avengers, it’ll focus on a single player perspective.
Also, did we mention the freakin’ amazing soundtrack?!
