"It is an honor for the Eidos-Montreal team to be able to work on such an iconic franchise alongside our loyal collaborators at Marvel Entertainment," said David Anfossi, Studio Director at Eidos-Montreal. "Our teams are known for revisiting licenses and adding their own touch and expertise to the stories and art surrounding them. As you'll discover, that's exactly what we've done in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. "

Eidos-Montreal and Square Enix today unveiled Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, a bold third-person action-adventure game combining original storytelling and exhilarating single-player gameplay, at the Square Enix Presents digital conference. Developed by Eidos-Montreal in collaboration with Marvel Entertainment, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy will be released simultaneously on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC, as well as streamed via GeForce NOW on October 26, 2021.  

Put on Star-Lord's jet boots and embark on a wild ride across the galaxy in this all-new version of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Accompanied by the unpredictable Guardians, you'll find yourself in the most explosive situations and meet famous Marvel characters and newcomers alike, all of whom are involved in the fate of the universe. It'll do. It should. 

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is being developed by the experienced team at Eidos-Montreal in close collaboration with Marvel Entertainment to deliver an original and authentic experience inspired by over half a century of Guardians of the Galaxy history. This unique Guardians of the Galaxy adventure, inspired by the comic books, will take players on an exhilarating journey through space as Peter Quill and the Guardians become the last bastion protecting the galaxy. 

Jay Ong, executive vice president and general manager of Marvel Games, said, "The Guardians franchise is a blend of science fiction, family drama and rock 'n' roll with a cutting-edge aesthetic. "We are thrilled to be working with Eidos-Montreal because we know they are up to the challenge. The team's vision for our favorite eccentrics illuminates Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. We can't wait for our fans to play it in October. " 

Embrace Star-Lord's dynamic fighting style as he pulverizes opponents with his elemental blasters and call upon the unique skills of each Guardian to defeat an array of interplanetary enemies. As the self-appointed leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, players will have to make choices during various dialogues and interactions between Quill and his team, strengthening the bonds within this dysfunctional family.   

Finally, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy wouldn't be complete without a killer soundtrack to listen to as you cruise through space aboard the Milano. The game is packed with 80's classics and original tracks.
