Once again, it’s up to the worst heroes possible to save the universe. Announced during E3 2021, Guardians of the Galaxy puts you in the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord and his band of misfit mercenaries, as you face off against the Universal Church of Truth who is attempting to conquer the galaxy.
Despite featuring the entire Guardians team, you’re locked into only playing as Star-Lord, but are able to command and direct the rest of the team while running missions. It’s also a single-player game with no online service and a pretty killer soundtrack full of ’80s pop tunes.
The game isn’t tied to any pre-existing Guardians of the Galaxy canon and is instead blending traits from both the movies and the various comics into something new – similar to what Insomniac did with the Spider-Man games. From what we’ve seen of it so far, it’s definitely got the quippy jokes of the James Gunn movies down pat.
