Similar to Marvel’s Avengers, the new Guardians game will also be a third-person action-adventure title, this time focusing on the squad of misfit heroes fans are familiar with and love from the MCU. You’ll take on the role of Starlord aka Peter Quill, fighting alongside Gamora, Drax, Rocket Raccoon and Groot. Unlike their cinematic representations, however, the game will offer a whole new original storyline and follow the gang just one year after they came together.
Guardians of the Galaxy was originally announced back in 2017 and is being developed by Eidos Montreal, the studio behind Shadow of the Tomb Raider, two Deus Ex titles, as well as Human Revolution and Mankind Divided. It also helped Crystal Dynamics in developing Marvel’s Avengers, the first of many other Marvel-based titles to come following a partnership deal signed back in 2017 between the comic book company and Square Enix.
