Finally, here is some insight from the game’s developers:
The game is described as:
“Fire up Star-Lord’s jet boots for a wild ride across the cosmos in this third-person action-adventure game, a fresh take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. With the unpredictable Guardians at your side, blast your way from one explosive situation to another, with original and iconic Marvel characters caught in a struggle for the fate of the universe. You got this. Probably.”
Similar to Crystal Dynamics’ Marvel’s Avengers, the upcoming Guardians game will be separate from the comic and the Marvel Cinematic Universe continuity. Though there’s no word yet on if the Guardians game is set in the same universe as Crystal Dynamic’s Avengers game.
Guardians of the Galaxy releases on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC on October 26, 2021.
