Square Enix has released a new story trailer for its upcoming Marvel video game, Guardians of the Galaxy.
Since the release and success of Marvel’s Spider-Man for the PlayStation 4, video game companies have been eager to cash in on the popularity of comic book properties. The game’s follow-up, Spider-Man: Miles Morales was released to similar praise to its predecessor with the developers now working on Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 and Marvel’s Wolverine for the PlayStation 5. In addition, Firaxis Games is working on a strategy-based RPG titled Marvel’s Midnight Sons for a 2022 release. More recent releases with significantly less praise, however, have been Square Enix’s attempts to develop comic-based video games.
Released last year to mixed reception, Marvel’s Avengers was Square Enix’s first attempt at a modern superhero game. Heroic Hollywood gave the game a 5/10 and reportedly lost the company over $63M. This, however, has not stopped Square Enix from continuing to develop games for the franchise and released a trailer for a new Guardians of the Galaxy game earlier this year. During the Playstation Showcase 2021 a new trailer for the game was released showing us what the main story for the game would revolve around.

Here is the official plot synopsis for Square Enix’s Guardians of the Galaxy:
“Fire up Star-Lord’s jet boots for a wild ride across the cosmos in this third-person action-adventure game, a fresh take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. With the unpredictable Guardians at your side, blast your way from one explosive situation to another, with original and iconic Marvel characters caught in a struggle for the fate of the universe.
