During their E3 2021 event, Square Enix has announced their next Marvel game with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
The game is being developed by Eidos-Montreal, who previous worked on the Tomb Raiders and Deus Ex series.
“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 David Anfossi, Head of Studio at Eidos-Montréal. “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.”
You’ll be able to play as Peter Quill/Star-Lord, and fight alongside the rest of the Guardians as they take on enemies and save the galaxy.
The game will feature player-choice driven dialogue along with a killer soundtrack full of 80s hits and original tracks.
“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.”
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is set to launch on October 26th, 2021 for Xbox One, Xbox Series X & S, PS4, PS5 and PC.
