'Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy' Shows Off PC Features In Latest Trailer

Play as Star-Lord with the unpredictable Guardians at your side. Blast your way from one explosive situation to another in a struggle for the fate of the universe.

Fire up Star-Lord's jet boots for a wild ride across the cosmos in this 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 both original and well-known Marvel characters caught in a struggle for the fate of the universe. You got this. Probably.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is created by the seasoned Eidos-Montréal team, working closely with Marvel Entertainment to provide an original and authentic experience inspired by over 50 years of Guardians of the Galaxy lore. Influenced by the comics, this spin on the Guardians of the Galaxy takes players on a riotous journey across the stars as Peter Quill and the Guardians unintentionally become the galaxy's first and last line of defense.

In the game's universe, Star-Lord started the Guardians to sell their services as heroes-for-hire, and convinced Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot to join him along the way. The promise of adventure and profit was exactly what they were looking for. They even have a business card to prove it!!

The PC version of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy allows players to experience high levels of fidelity, real-time ray tracing, NVIDIA DLSS’ AI-powered performance boost, diffuse illumination, HDR and wide color gamut, and up to 8K resolution.

Additionally, players without access to a GeForce RTX PC (or are away from their system) will be able to stream the RTX-enhanced version of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy via NVIDIA’s cloud-based GeForce NOW service, with in-game progress transferable between devices.

At the beginning of the game, they trigger a chain reaction of catastrophic events, which will eventually put the fate of the universe at stake. Obviously, preventing intergalactic annihilation was never part of the plan. But they (and you) got this. Probably.

Master Star-Lord's dynamic combat style to obliterate foes with his Element Blasters and call on the abilities of each Guardian to defeat a variety of interplanetary enemies. Also, as self-proclaimed leader of the Guardians of the Galaxy, players engage in select player-choice driven dialogue and interactions between Quill and the Guardians that further strengthens the bonds within this dysfunctional family.

With Rocket, Groot, Gamora and Drax always around you, you can expect a lot of laughs and touching moments - our writing team had tons of fun. But in true Guardians spirit, we also wanted to capture what it’s like for a ragtag group of misfits to become family. Making those personalities collide, fight and come together… there’s going to be some real drama as well.

But even when the odds are stacked against them, the Guardians never back down.

Finally, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy wouldn't be complete without a killer soundtrack to rock out to while soaring through space in the Milano. There's Iron Maiden, KISS, New Kids On The Block, Rick Astley and more. But it doesn’t stop there and Square Enix/Eidos-Montréal will have more to say about the music in our game soon! The game is jam-packed with classic 1980s hits and kicking original tracks.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy launches on Nintendo Switch (Cloud Edition) PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC on Oct. 26, 2021.
