Guardians of the Galaxy: Other Things You Need To Know

Guardians of the Galaxy is being released as a single-player-only game, in which the player controls Star-Lord. Square Enix has confirmed that there will be no microtransactions, nor will there be any DLC. Players will have access to everything about this game from day one - a beautiful, rare, and precious thing.

Stylistically, the game borrows more from the comic books than the films in terms of how characters look. But we will still enjoy the devotion to 80s music that was so iconic in the Marvel movies.
