Guardians of the Galaxy The core team – Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot, and Drax – will feature, but establish a new continuity, which is not part of the MCU or the original comics universe. Although it will draw heavily on characters and situations from the comics, the game will see some very deep cuts. Villains include Lady Hellbender, a mighty warrior who collects and controls giant monsters, and Grand Unifier Rekar, an evil space priest and key figure in the nefarious Universal Church of Truth.
While the entire team will appear in the game, players will only directly control Star-Lord, with the rest of the team offering support in battle. Story decisions will allow you to engage with teammates, with a preview showing a choice between selling Rocket or Groot as part of a move to Lady Hellbender. Recently, senior audio director Steve Szepcowski told Granthshala that the game’s story will be 16 chapters long.
The developer will also include an entire rock album in the Eidos-Montreal game, featuring a fictional band called Star Lord, bearing the superhero pseudonym of the likes of Peter Quill. The first track from the album, ‘Space Riders with No Name’ has already been released.
Guardians of the Galaxy Ready for release on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch – although the latter will only be available as a cloud-based game.
In other news, the September system update for the PS5 is now live, which finally allows owners to expand the console’s onboard storage, and lets players remove the annoying onscreen pop-up that appears when taking screenshots.
