Developer Eidos-Montréal have released 2 new videos for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, featuring insights from Partrick Fortier, Senior Gameplay Director.
The first video Fortier describes how the Guardians fight alongside each other, while the second video focuses on how players can lead the Guardians outside of combat.
Just as they all have their own distinct personalities out of combat, each Guardian similarly boasts their own unique specialties and abilities on the battlefield, with their strategic management proving paramount for players hoping to take down the different kinds of enemies they will encounter while adventuring throughout the cosmos.
Rocket serves as the group’s multi-target explosive specialist, Groot as its protector and healer, Drax as its staggering wrecking ball, Gamora as its high-damage single-target assassin, and Star-Lord as its versatile “so-called” leader.
Players won’t only have the opportunity to lead the Guardians in combat, they’ll also be responsible for steering their teammates in the right direction while journeying to and from a plethora of iconic Marvel locations on the Milano.
Making choices is a core part of being a leader, as well as dealing with the consequences of said actions. Similarly, this too, is at the core of the Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy experience, from deciding how to approach a conversation, to allocating ability points, to choosing between comic-accurate and original outfits, which weapons Rocket will upgrade, and beyond.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC (via Steam and Epic Games Store), and Nintendo Switch (Cloud version) on October 26th, 2021.
