“Our story takes place twelve years after an epic conflict known as the Galactic War swept through the cosmos. Star-Lord recently formed the Guardians of the Galaxy, they’ve been together for less than a year,” says Ramtohul. “He started the group as heroes-for-hire, seeing an opportunity for adventure and profit in a universe that’s still recovering from the War.”
If you watch the trailer, you can see a lot of the clear inspiration from James Gunn’s movies and it’s got the hair-metal music, the comedic shenanigans and tons of action. This isn’t the same team from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series but its own entry that is a single-player action game through and through.
Being who they are, the Guardians set off a series of catastrophic events that sets the Universal Church of Truth after them, threatening the universe. This cult wants to bring their ‘promise’ to the universe, which will restore things lost during the Galactic War — a suspicious promise.
Along the way to stopping the Universal Church of Truth, the Guardians of the Galaxy will run into the Nova Corps, they’ll also encounter the Worldmind, a massive supercomputer composed of the minds and memories of the entire Xandar civilization.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is coming October 26, 2021 on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5.
