Square Enix has announced Eidos Montreal's upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy game will be launching for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on October 26.

The game will be a fully single-player third-person adventure game, putting you in the shoes of Star Lord - but you'll be able to use the abilities of other characters such as Rocket Racoon and Groot. The gameplay also gave us an indication players will be able to choose dialogue options, as well as engaging in high octane action. It seems characters also remember the choices you make in your adventure, adding some Mass Effect-esque elements to your story.

It's being handled by the same team as the Deux Ex series, so it's clear some of those influences are being incorporated. The trailer nails the humour, art style and personalities of each hero - we're excited to see how this one plays out. It's also exciting to see that it's arriving this year, bar no delays.
