Breaking down the story trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

Our story takes place twelve years after an epic conflict known as the Galactic War swept through the cosmos. Star-Lord recently formed the Guardians of the Galaxy, they’ve been together for less than a year. He started the group as heroes-for-hire, seeing opportunity for adventure and profit in a universe that’s still recovering from the War.

Unfortunately, at the beginning of our game, they inadvertently set off a series of catastrophic events, that enables a grand organization known as the Universal Church of Truth to rise to prominence and begin to threaten the universe. They’re intent on bringing their so-called “Promise” to the galaxy, which according to them, will bring back everything that was lost in the Galactic War. Yeah, that’s pretty suspicious. 

As the Guardians come upon the full force of the Church, they realize that they’ll need to step up when no one else will. They’re a small team and they’re still coming together, so they’re going to need a lot of allies along the way. This is where Cosmo, one of the really fun characters in our game, gets involved. He is a dog that is also an extremely powerful telepath, which allowed him to become the head of security of Knowhere. 

Keeping Knowhere safe and operating smoothly isn’t just a job for Cosmo, and he feels strongly about his responsibility to the people living on the station. The Church is an obvious threat to the safety of Knowhere, so he’ll help the Guardians on their way to investigate the Church and the source of their power.

On their adventure, the Guardians will also come across the Nova Corps, a space militia that maintains peace in the galaxy. They’re headed by the Worldmind, a massive supercomputer composed of the minds and memories of the entire Xandar civilization. As the Guardians will find out, getting the Worldmind to help them isn’t going to be as straightforward as they expected… 

In the trailer, you may have also noticed Star-Lord’s elemental blasters transforming. They’re very special as they’re tied to his DNA, they’re connected to him. Over the course of the story, he begins to realize that this connection enables him to transform the blasters according to his needs – which will unlock various elements that you can use to your advantage in combat and exploration.

As the Guardians travel throughout the galaxy, they’ll also meet colorful characters such as Mantis, aka the Celestial Madonna in our universe, Kammy, a mysterious space alpaca, and many more.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is coming October 26, 2021 to PS4 and PS5! We can’t wait for you all to play our game. Buckle up – it’s gonna be a wild ride.

  • The Story, Art style and settings are what selling this to me, got the feel of abnett & lanning run although some members missing.
    I am not that into the gameplay, I don’t know why exactly, but I will give it a try :)

  • Am I seeing things, or do you get to fly the Milano?

  • I get it, Marvel’s Avengers was a bad game so people aren’t ready to embrace Guardians. Although I couldn’t give a crap about most Disney Marvel movies I liked the Guardians of the Galaxy movies but it’s because of to the actors. Those aren’t here, neither is the writing judging from the trailer, but I think it looks nice and I’ll give it a fair chance.

    • Wow, you went back n forth several times in a few sentences there, that was a fun read :) I didnt like the Guardians movies but enjoyed the characters in Avengers. Gonna wait a bit with the game. Telltales Guardians was awesome :)

  • The fumble with Avengers still has left a bad taste in people’s mouths (how can you fumble such an IP, that should be a case study some day). Will see how this turns out, but fumbling 2 premier IPs would be a terrible look for Square Enix.

    • Square Enix have been pretty consistently fumbling premier IPs since like 2009, so it wouldn’t be a new look. 😁

    • Well, most of the people whining havent even played the game. It doesnt really matter what developers do, if its not game of the year, people will whine.

  • Why does the main character have to have such a stupid hairstyle?

  • I can’t wait to play Spider-Man 2 when does Wolverine come out on ps5
