Square Enix has announced today that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is coming to Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on October 26. Developed by Eidos-Montréal, this is a single-player, narrative driven action-adventure game.
Fire up Star-Lord’s jet boots for a wild ride across the cosmos in this third-person action-adventure game, a fresh take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. With the unpredictable Guardians at your side, blast your way from one explosive situation to another, with original and iconic Marvel characters caught in a struggle for the fate of the universe. You got this. Probably.
Square Enix has also released a deep dive behind the scenes video, as well as an extended gameplay first-look, both of which you can watch down below:
Each Guardian has their own identity and ability in combat. Drax is going to be more aggro, able to stagger enemies to put them off balance. Gamora is focused on high impact blows. Groot is the protector that can crowd control and heal the group. And Rocket has his bombs and deals more area of effect damage. Then as Star-Lord, you’re mixing his agility along with utilizing his blasters.
In the game when you call the Huddle, Star-Lord can give a speech to calm down the Guardians or motivate them. Then when you return to the gameplay, depending on how successful the speech was (or not), your Guardians are boosted.
