Square Enix and Eidos Montreal’s latest Marvel game is out, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has been met with positive reviews from critics. Most critics praised the game’s superb voice acting and the well-directed story, and how it’s been closely tied with the source material. The results of the reviews came to be unexpected as the game was met with low expectations since its reveal a few months ago during Square Enix’s Summer Showcase on June 14, 2021.
Just a few weeks ago, Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s Avengers was added to the Xbox Game Pass catalog of games, plus Outriders came out on Xbox Game Pass day one, will that also mean that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy be on Microsoft’s subscription service? Here’s what we know about Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on Xbox Game Pass.
Is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on Xbox Game Pass?
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is not on Xbox Game Pass, but probably in the near future. Since the game is relatively new, Square Enix has not yet made any deal with Microsoft to have the critically well-received Marvel game on Xbox Game Pass.
There’s a less likely possibility of seeing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy on Xbox Game Pass any time soon, so don’t expect the game to be on the service until 2023.
Is Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Worth Picking Up?
With all the positive reception Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is getting, it’s definitely worth buying. If you aren’t convinced yet, the game is sitting on an 82 average top critic score on OpenCritic. As our reviewer, Adrian Morales, mentioned in his review: “Anyone can pick this game up and find something to love about it, and that is Guardians of the Galaxy’s greatest accomplishment.”
I would say, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy took the world by surprise, while it lacked a little bit of polish optimization-wise, the evident flaws were overshadowed by its amazing voice cast, funny dialogue, well-written plot, enjoyable combat, key story moments, and the magnificent ’80s tracklist and Richard Jacques original soundtrack. This proves that even linear, single-player experiences can still be entertaining and engaging if done right.
