An original story
In the vein of all current Marvel video games, all the stories that are told in video games are unpublished, so are not directly connected to any comic or movie of the UCM. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy seeks its influence in comics, but immerses itself in an original story full of adventure and action. Beyond their obvious comic tone, the developers have infused the stories of these charismatic characters with a touch of drama.
If in Marvel’s Avengers Crystal Dynamics you opted for a game-as-a-service model, Guardians of the Galaxy takes a different direction: It is a product designed to be enjoyed alone, without any kind of micropayment, which means that all cosmetic contents are included in the game and are unlocked by playing.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy goes on sale on October 26th on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC. It will also be available on Nintendo Switch, but as a cloud title.
