Despite the story following a squad, Square Enix’s recently revealed upcoming “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” game will no feature any co-op or multiplayer component and will be an entirely single-player third-person narrative action-adventure affair.
ResetEra (via PS Lifestyle) have revealed that thanks to some information on a LinkedIn profile, it has been confirmed that Eidos Montreal was at one point working on a multiplayer component of some kind, but all aspects of that were cancelled and the project pivoted to an entirely solo player affair.
Speculation that this was done in reaction to the failure of last year’s more co-op and multiplayer-centric “Marvel’s Avengers” title also by Square Enix have been shot down with the reports indicating the Guardians MP component was scrapped long before the “Avengers” game came out.
The game follows the Guardians as they travel the universe in the Milano with the action taking place from the perspective of Star-Lord. Players can order the other Guardians around and do specific attacks with action now a mix of melee, gunplay and tactical combat.
“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” will be released on October 26th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and Switch.
