Square Enix and Eidos-Montreal released two new videos for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. According to the teams, each video features insights directly from Senior Gameplay Director Patrick Fortier. In the first video, Fortier hones in on how the Guardians synergize in battle. In the second, he focuses on how players can lead the Guardians outside of it.
Just as they all have their own distinct personalities out of combat, each Guardian similarly boasts their own unique specialties and abilities on the battlefield, with their strategic management proving paramount for players hoping to take down the vast array of different enemies they’ll encounter while adventuring through the cosmos. Rocket serves as the group’s multi-target explosive specialist and Groot as its protector and healer. Drax is its staggering wrecking ball and Gamora as its high-damage single-target assassin. Lastly, Star-Lord is, of course, its versatile “so-called” leader.
In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, players won’t only have the opportunity to lead the Guardians in combat. As seen in the second video, they’ll also be responsible for steering their teammates in the right direction while journeying to and from a plethora of iconic Marvel locations on the Milano. Making choices (and dealing with the consequences) is a core part of being a leader, and it’s similarly at the core of the Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy experience, from deciding how to approach a conversation, to allocating ability points, to choosing between comic-accurate and original outfits, and beyond.
