Ran an PC & Konsole: Square Enix präsentiert „Guardians of the Galaxy“

Can you still think of Square Enix’s project “Marvel‘s Avengers” recall? For many players, this work was hard on the stomach, because of the multiplayer function and other sometimes annoying gimmicks. But you can breathe easy! Square Enix has ventured into yet another Marvel masterpiece, and this time around, it’s all focused on a single-player campaign.

The object of desire this time were probably the cheekiest superheroes in film history – the “Guardians of the Galaxy“. Eidos-Montreal got the green light from Marvel to stage this extraordinary gear for the gaming community and has dared to do a breathtaking reinterpretation. A very unique version of the popular characters Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, Rocket, Groot, Drax and Gamora was created, which probably all fans, both those of the films (“Guardians of the Galaxy”, “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol . 2 “) as well as those of the comics and the animated series, which one or the other characteristic of their heroes can find again.

The story is also completely new. For example, the Guardians stumble from one adventure to the next due to lack of money and are captured by the Nova Corps space police, among others. As you would expect from the anti-hero squad that knocking their mouths, this swings up so far that our darlings are suddenly on an adventure of galactic proportions.

With all the new interpretations, however, the crisp, cheeky humor remains and you discover references to the previous works from the franchise here and there.

In “Guardians of the Galaxy” the players slip exclusively into the role of Peter Quill, alias Star-Lord. You can and must interact with Groot, Gamora, Drax and Rocket during the battle sequences, puzzle units and discovery tours in order to ultimately reach your goal. For us, especially the moments were a highlight when you could explore small side entrances and paths contrary to the actually planned course. This is definitely a must for all explorers among you, because this is the only way to find well-hidden outfits and useful components to upgrade the skills of the “Guardians of the Galaxy”.

In contrast to this are the fight scenes in which we can properly hand out two pistols with Star Lords. But beware! The guns run hot! Our companions are meanwhile AI-controlled and support us slightly. But the opponent only takes a lot of damage if we combine the skills of our team members.

In addition, “Guardians of the Galaxy” can shine with a truly breathtaking design and is also equipped with a phenomenal soundtrack, which musically recalls the good old 80s. A little tip for the streamers among you: The team from Eidos-Montreal and Square Enix has even built in the function of replacing the licensed soundtrack with a free one, so that you can deliver added value to your community without bans or warnings.

So don’t be put off by the somewhat devastating experience from the “Marvel’s Avengers” game or by the first trailers and image sections! “Guardians of the Galaxy” by Square Enix is ​​much more than a brightly colored adventure where only firepower counts!
