Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have announced third-person narrative action-adventure Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy launches October 26th on Windows PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S.
In debt and desperate, play as Star-Lord, and keep the Guardians from tearing each other apart, get rich, and tidy up the galaxy-wide mess they make. While players only control Star Lord, they call on the rest of the team for their abilities. They also make key decision as the team argue.
“The Eidos-Montréal team is honored to have the opportunity to work on such an iconic franchise alongside our trusted collaborators at Marvel Entertainment,” said Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal David Anfossi (via emailed press release).
“Our teams are known for revisiting IPs and bringing their own twists and craft to the stories and the art surrounding them. As you will experience, it’s no different for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.”
“A distinct mix of sci-fi, family drama, and rock n’ roll attitude with an edgy aesthetic is the foundation for our Guardians franchise”, said Jay Ong, EVP and Head of Marvel Games. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Eidos-Montréal knowing they are the team that can deliver on this core promise. The team’s laser-focused vision for our beloved band of misfits shines in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. We are excited for our fans to play it this October.”
