Guardians Of The Galaxy Preorder guide: Release Date, Bonuses, Editions, And More

Eidos Montreal's new game is an adaptation of Guardians of the Galaxy, and it releases October 26.


Eidos Montreal, the studio behind the Deus Ex series, is adapting Guardians of the Galaxy. The upcoming action-RPG is a single-player game that puts you in the shoes of Star-Lord. Guardians of the Galaxy releases October 26 for Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, and PC, and preorders are starting to become available at major retailers. Three editions are available to preorder, and you can get a cool bonus for ordering early.

We got a new glimpse of Guardians of the Galaxy during the latest PlayStation Showcase. Square Enix previously showed off roughly 15 minutes of gameplay during its E3 showcase, giving us a look at the action gameplay and comedic dynamic between the characters. It looks to retain the heart of the movies and comics (complete with endless banter), which is a critical aspect of Guardians of the Galaxy's appeal to begin with. Set roughly one year after the crew linked up, Guardians of the Galaxy is more so inspired by the source material than beholden to it, as it features an original story. Although you can only play as Star-Lord, you can utilize the abilities of Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Drax, and Groot.

Guardians of the Galaxy has a free upgrade from Xbox One to Xbox Series X and PS4 to PS5. The game will also be available on Nintendo Switch. However, this version of the game will use cloud streaming in order to run what is a more technically advanced game than we usually see on the system.
