Eidos Montreal is in charge of the Guardians of the Galaxy game

Come and get your love for this weird team of Marvel superheroes from Eidos Montreal and Square Enix's Guardians of the Galaxy game

Who knew that a group of aliens consisting of a talking raccoon and a tree would become a hit with a bunch of people who've never heard of the Guardians of the Galaxy before? Even those who follow the Marvel Comics comics were not so familiar with the team that, in the comics, has a personality and background that varies periodically to the point of already having famous members of other super teams like Iron Man (dating with the Gamora), Kitty Pride (from the X-Men as the Star Lady, replacing boyfriend Peter Quill) and the Thing (from the Fantastic Four).

Do you know all these people?

Also, if you go after these characters there, you will see that they are not so similar to what you are used to seeing in the movies. Peter Quill (played by Chris Pratt), the Star Lord, is not so charismatic and fun, being more of a “standard hero” of comics with that sour, scowling attitude, and Drax (Dave Bautista) isn't the guy either. who understands everything literally like in the movie and Mantis (Pom Klementieff) doesn't have that shy way and “you kicked my puppy” eyes either.

In short, if you like them in the movies you probably won't find them so cool in the comics, but if you want more of the Guardians and don't feel like reading over 60 years of comics then good news for you.

Guardians of the Galaxy is coming at the hands of Square Enix

In its presentation at E3 2021, publisher Square Enix revealed that Eidos Montreal, the studio behind games like Deus Ex: Human Revolution and the Tomb Raider remake, is working on a game simply titled Guardians of the Galaxy. An adaptation of movie heroes in an adventure that, if you're disappointed with what was done with the Avengers game, then good news: it will be singleplayer.

The game puts players in the role of Star Lord (aka Peter Quill) in a third-person action-adventure experience. In a unique twist, Peter will be joined by the rest of the Guardians at all times, with his teammates like Groot and Rocket Racoon being controlled by the game's AI. The story takes place several years after some kind of intergalactic warfare, when the Guardians are still a relatively new group, having been together for less than a year.

Eidos also says that your choices will play a big role in the story: as the de facto team leader, you will have to make decisions that impact the narrative. During a sequel, for example, you'll have to decide if you want to sell Rocket or Groot to some kind of monster collector.

Interestingly, the Guardians have previously been featured in a choice-based adventure game made by Telltale, which has worked with other franchises like Batman and Walking Dead in 2017. The game's first screenshots show a game full of big gun battles. , colorful worlds, lots of 80s music, weird alien monsters, stylish spaceships, and lots of Marvel-style jokes from the cinemas.

This isn't the first time Square Enix has teamed up with Marvel, as the publisher has previously released an Avengers game, primarily developed by Crystal Dynamics (Eidos Montreal also helped with that game). Despite a well-received singleplayer campaign, the game was overloaded with gameplay elements such as service and microtransactions, which were widely criticized. Guardians of the Galaxy, meanwhile, will be entirely microtransaction free and will not be a game as a service.

This is great news for anyone who wants to play the full game without having to be logged in periodically or receiving offers for cosmetic items or upgrade items every five minutes on-screen. Guardians of the Galaxy will be released on October 26th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X.
