Square Enix’s Summer Showcase kicked off with a new game from developer Eidos-Montréal, Guardians of the Galaxy. You play as Star-Lord here, joined by the rest of the Guardians crew; Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket.
There are plenty of story cutscenes shown off in the trailer, as well as a Telltale-like choice system. As Star-Lord, you can react to story events in the game, changing the course of your adventure. Everyone is as snarky as they are in the comics and films in the dialogue, and there is a lot of it. The Guardians are constantly bantering with each other throughout cutscenes, exploration and fights.
The trailer features plenty of lasers, rock and roll, and space action we’ve come to love about the Guardians franchise. The showcase also featured a lengthy gameplay showcase, featuring some third-person gameplay. You can call on your other Guardians while fighting space creatures, all to the background of classic rock tracks.
The game will release October 26, 2021.
