Eidos Montreal has offered up a couple of new gameplay videos showcasing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy in action.
The two videos focus on combat and exploration and give us more insight into the ins and outs of gameplay. In combat, each Guardian in the team will be suited to a specific role. Explosives expert Rocket will help take out crowds of enemies with his fiery arsenal. Groot meanwhile is the defender, able to immobilise enemies and even revive his teammates.
Drax charges in headfirst, with his combat abilities inflicting stagger damage and stunning enemies that get in his way. Gamora meanwhile strikes with finesse, and will be your go-to for when you need to target specific enemies. Finally, the player—as Star Lord— is the most rounded fighter, and you’ll be able to unlock elemental attacks over the course of the game.
When you’re not fighting, you’ll get to spend some downtime in the Milano. This is your ship, and is filled with easter eggs, references and opportunities to get to know your fellow Guardians. The video also gives us a look at the game’s ability point system, that will allow you to upgrade your team, based on your playstyle. You’ll also be able to have Rocket upgrade your gear at the workbench.
Get your eyes on both new Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy gameplay trailers below. The adventure blasts off on October 26 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4 and PC.
