Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy videos show combat and exploration
Square Enix and Eidos Montreal are back with two new videos for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy that detial combat and exploration. Both have insight from senior gameplay director Patrick Fortier. Fortier talks about how the Guardians synergize in battle as well as how players can lead the Guardians outside of it.
Here’s some additional information:
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, Groot as its protector and healer, Drax as its staggering wrecking ball, Gamora as its high-damage single-target assassin, and Star-Lord as, 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.
The new combat and exploration videos for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy can be found below.
