The Square Enix Presents Summer Showcase kicked off with a reveal of a Guardians of the Galaxy game, coming to PC and consoles later in 2021.
Guardians of the Galaxy exploded in popularity following the release of the first film a few years ago. Now, Square Enix has revealed that a dedicated game featuring this plucky band of galactic adventurers will be arriving later this year. Let's get right to it — check out the Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy Official Reveal Trailer to get a feel for the game!
Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will put you in the space boots of Peter "Star-Lord" Quill roughly one year after the titular group of adventurers first formed. There will be plenty of action, but you'll also have to manage your team by making decisions throughout the story. Mind, the reveal trailer wasn't the only thing that popped up today; a developer deep dive and a lengthy first look at gameplay were also revealed as part of today's presentation.
Naturally, this upcoming game is also going to have the same characteristic tone from the films along with a killer soundtrack. Unfortunately, there's one downside with this game; much like Marvel's Avengers, the characters' likenesses and voices are not based off of the Marvel Cinematic Universe characters.
When is the Guardians of the Galaxy Release Date?
The Guardians of the Galaxy release date is October 26, 2021. You'll be able to play it on PC, PlayStation, and Xbox.
The end of the year is looking pretty good for gaming! You can learn more about this game (and put in a pre-order, too) on its official website. Do keep in mind, however, that the site is getting heavy traffic and you might not be able to get in right away.
