Square Enix and Eidos Montreal who are publishing and developing the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy game respectively have just released the launch trailer.
So what can we expect from this Guardians of the Galaxy trailer? Well, nothing really except for the usual adrenaline-fueled action sequences paired with some hit 80s music which in this case is “Kickstart My Heart”, tied in with some dynamic in-game wardrobe changes, interacting with some characters for story’s sake, Groot holding some sort of space alpaca, and a quick tease of what looks to be Adam Warlock.
The Guardians are definitely up to their usual hi jinx of causing as much chaos as they can wherever they go, evading arrest from the proper and improper authorities, bantering with each other with the usual Guardians jokes. The game is set up to look like it’s a fun ride and that is really all we’re asking for and hopefully it won’t be following suit with its sister game, Marvel’s Avengers.
While most gamers will no doubt be debating on what Adam Warlock’s role is in the game, this writer’s focus will be figuring out what the hell Groot is doing with the space Alpaca.
