Eidos-Montréal and Square Enix have released the official launch trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy which will launch on October 26th for Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 5, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. The trailer is embedded above while a brief description of the trailer is included below.
Set to Mötley Crüe’s headbanging “Kickstart My Heart,” the launch trailer helps answer that question, showcasing just some of the chaotic action to ensue. Although their differences often lead them into trouble, on the battlefield, each of the Guardians contributes something special to the team; explosive specialist Rocket is well-equipped to dish out area-of-effect damage, Groot provides unparalleled defensive support, Drax powers through any resistance head-on and Gamora lends swift and precise swordsmanship to the squad. As Star-Lord, players will call the shots both on the battlefield and throughout the story.
I had the chance to play a brief demo of the game back in August and walked away thinking it was a far better experience than Marvel’s Avengers. Check my in-depth preview for more thoughts and stay tuned for our coverage on the final build of the game in the weeks ahead.
