Eidos-Montréal revealed a brand-new TV spot to set the stage for next week’s official launch of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. In the trailer, viewers are dropped straight into the middle of a mid-battle Huddle, where Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket and Groot assess the situation, discuss strategy and, of course, banter before deciding to go with Plan B — an all-out, coordinated assault appropriately fueled by Mötley Crüe’s “Kickstart My Heart.”
This of course continues the tone set by James Gunn’s Guardians from the MCU. It’ll be interesting to see what kind of version these Guardians will fall under. Will they lean closer to their comic book roots, to their MCU counterparts or perhaps a third original iteration?
Then there is the Huddle mechanic for all you team players out there.
This Huddle mechanic will prove essential for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy players as they fight to overcome seemingly impossible odds throughout their journey across the galaxy. In the game, players will be able to call a Huddle during combat and choose which motivational words to offer the team. If chosen correctly, all of the Guardians will receive a powerup, making it easier for them to bang enemy heads while listening to one of the game’s 30 headbanging tracks.
