It's been quite a year for Square Enix with the release of Marvel's Avengers and Outriders, the slate for what's next is really exciting. Also comes the news of some brand new games in the Marvel and Final Fantasy franchises. The biggest surprise was the amount of footage we were shown from Guardians of the Galaxy and the release date of 2021. The game is being done by Eidos Montreal and is completely separate from the Marvel Avengers game universe.
The graphics of the universe and the story look very true to both the film and the whackiness of the comics. The soundtrack is also reminiscent of the Marvel Studios films so it feels really fitting.
