Great information for individuals who wish to make references to the “you’ve captured their stunt doubles” joke from “Spaceballs,” there’s a brand new third-person “Guardians of the Galaxy” online game popping out later this yr. And you possibly can watch the trailer for the sport from Eidos Montreal on the prime of the web page proper now.
Before you ask, this “Guardians” recreation isn’t linked to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Like final yr’s “Marvel’s Avengers,” additionally from Square Enix and Eidos Montreal BTW, it takes place in its personal universe and tells a stand alone story. But even when they couldn’t get the likeness rights for any of the actors, this recreation certain goes out of its strategy to attempt to make you consider James Gunn’s MCU motion pictures.
For one factor, it options the film model of the “Guardians” lineup: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax and naturally, Rocket and Groot. plus Mantis. And all of them really feel fairly just like their film counterparts. Plus, this model of Star-Lord just about wears the identical outfit as Chris Pratt, Rocket’s accent is VERY just like the one Bradley Cooper makes use of, Groot is completely primarily based on the film model reasonably than the comics, and the Benatar — or regardless of the ship’s title is right here — just about appears to be like precisely just like the ship seen within the motion pictures.
It additionally options some very comparable jokes, like when Mantis calls Quill “Sun-Lord,” or the gang will get known as “Gardeners of the Galaxy.”
But then there’s the music, Bonnie Tyler’s “Holding Out for a Hero.” We get that the intention is to seize one thing of the spirit of a James Gunn film soundtrack however very similar to 2016’s “Suicide Squad,” it type of misses the purpose. Gunn doesn’t simply mine nostalgia for its personal sake, he intentionally picks songs to curate a vibe or counsel one thing about his characters, and customarily they’re attention-grabbing selections and surprisingly deep cuts.
“Holding Out for a Hero” is a enjoyable music certainly, nevertheless it’s extraordinarily performed out to the purpose that its virtually a cliche. It’s been utilized in dozens of soundtracks and film trailers and simply this week alone was featured within the trailer for Kevin Smith’s “Masters of the Universe” reboot on Netflix. No approach would James Gunn make such an apparent, and admittedly lazy selection. Sorry guys, nevertheless it’s the reality.
Anyway, the brand new “Guardians of the Galaxy” recreation, introduced Sunday throughout distributor Square Enix’s E3 2021 presentation, is a 3rd individual adventure-shooter the place you’ll play as Star Lord/Peter Quill. Set about 10 years after some type of interstellar warfare and, on this universe, happening very quickly after the Guardians first change into a group — shocker — they’ll have to save lots of the universe.
The recreation’s builders say it’s designed to have a bunch of advanced narrative choices that permit Star-Lord make choices for the remainder of the group. True to their dynamics within the movies, sure characters will get offended with you in the event that they don’t like the alternatives you’re making for them — which could embody making one other teammate threaten to kill somebody, apparently.
