Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy teases surprising twists and urges gamers to avoid spoilers as the sci-fi superhero adventure approaches release.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has previewed a plot full of thrilling twists and turns ahead of its forthcoming release. The Eidos-Montreal-developed sci-fi superhero adventure will allow players to control Star-Lord and command the titular crew of cosmic misfits. So yet, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has shown almost little of its ostensibly lengthy storyline, with only fleeting hints at some significant additions like Adam Warlock as a critical character.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be a narrative-driven single-player experience in which players will take on the role of squad commander Star-Lord. On the other hand, the other four Guardians will be with players every step of the way, playing an essential part in both combat encounters and role-playing situations. Gamora, Drax, Groot, and Rocket can be given commands during combat, with each hero having a distinct role on the battlefield. Throughout the tale, dialogue options will allow players to make particular actions that can either improve or harm Star-bond Lord’s with each partner. Aside from the elemental Guardians and the enigmatic Adam Warlock, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will have a broader cast of cosmic Marvel characters such as Mantis, Worldmind, and Cosmo the Dog’s adorable litter of puppies.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy foreshadowed unexpected twists and turns that players will experience in the superhero adventure in a statement released on Twitter. The message also serves to warn fans who may obtain the game early, requesting that they not reveal the title’s shocking plot. According to creator Eidos-Montreal, some of the narrative’s twists and turns have not even been hinted at, so fans of the outer space outlaw gang can expect quite a ride when the game officially launches on October 26. Any streams or playthroughs of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy before October 25 will be removed to protect the experience for others.
Please note streaming the game or posting full playthroughs before it's officially available for the first time – 6am PT / 9am ET / 2pm BST / 3pm CEST on October 25 – will incur a takedown or strike.
Keep those secrets safe! Thank you!

While little of the game’s spacefaring plot has been revealed, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is shaping up to be a lengthy experience. The game’s size recently raised eyebrows when a file size of 150 gigabytes was posted on Steam. This would have been a massive issue for gamers with low-end PCs or limited storage space, and the size was startling for a linear single-player game. Fortunately, Eidos-Montreal later clarified that Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t 150 gigabytes, instead of weighing in at around 80 gigabytes at launch after some optimization.
Marvel Comics has decades of comic book narratives to draw from for new adaptations, resulting inappropriately lengthy games like Marvel’s Spider-Man. Like that renowned superhero title, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is intended to surprise fans with unexpected story beats and surprises. Little of the vast Guardian’s journey has been seen, with most advertising material focusing on a single level quite early in the game. With important characters like Adam Warlock just been hinted at thus far, it’s little wonder that the sci-fi slugfest is harbouring some unexpected moments.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be available on October 26 for the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, GeForce Now, and PC.
