Game studio Eidos Montreal is working on a game about the

Guardians of the Galaxy

heroes of comics giant Marvel.

The company announced this to NU.nl prior to a major presentation.

Eidos Montreal is known for the

Tomb Raider

games.

The company also recently developed a game about

Marvel's Avengers

.

According to the studio, the game has been in development for several years.

In the

Guardians of the Galaxy

game, players take on the role of Star-Lord, the leader of an alien group of superheroes.

Your teammates help during battles, but in between you also have to calm them down by, for example, mediating during quarrels.

While

Guardians of the Galaxy is

primarily a comic book series, the game seems largely inspired by the recent Marvel feature films.

For example, the first images are accompanied by a soundtrack with cult classics from the eighties, just like in the films.

The new game should be strictly a single player narrative experience.

This makes the game different from the previously released

Avengers

, which also had a multiplayer segment in addition to the story.

This addition was largely criticized in reviews.

The game is set to release on October 26 for PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series S|X, and PC.
