Square Enix is taking their Marvel license to the stars, with a Guardians of the Galaxy title that looks like a cross between the movies and comics.
Okay, so Square Enix’ Avengers game didn’t get the best initial reception. That’s not to say that it hasn’t gotten better though, since the title has added quite a bit and has even gotten the next/current-gen bump. The bottom line is that it’s been fairly improved since launch. And the publisher is riding that wave, if you want to call it that, straight into a Guardians of the Galaxy game.
Guardians of the Galaxy will feature Peter “Star-Lord” Quill in the main character position, with the (commandable) Guardians at his side. So you won’t be able to play as Drax or Gamora, but they’ll be there to assist you as you jet and blast your way through the third-person action game’s campaign.
Speaking of, it’s a campaign that looks like it’ll hold quite a bit of Marvel Comics’ cosmic corner. Check out the trailer below.
Fire up Star-Lord’s jet boots for a wild ride across the cosmos in this 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 both original and well-known Marvel characters caught in a struggle for the fate of the universe. You got this. Probably.Square Enix
