We're only a few weeks away from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy and Square Enix has dropped a new story trailer filled with action, animals and lots of explosions.

While it's not tied into the films, it does draw a lot of inspiration from the comics, introducing characters such as Cosmo the Spacedog. Whereas previous trailers have focused on gameplay, all eyes are on the story here, with Square Enix being kind enough to provide a description of the narrative:

Twelve years ago, a massive Galactic War swept across the cosmos. Star-Lord, seeing opportunity for adventure and profit in a universe that's finally moving on, recently formed the Guardians of the Galaxy to sell their services as heroes-for-hire. But now, a grand organization known as the Universal Church of Truth promises to bring back everything that was lost in the Galactic War. Powered by their faith, they're spreading their beliefs to more and more worlds. It'll soon be up to the Guardians to save the galaxy. No guts, no glory.

Developed by Eidos Montreal, the team behind the Deus Ex series, elements fans have come to know about the legendary sci-fi series are making their way into Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy. Most notable is the inclusion of choices in the story, allowing players to affect the outcomes of certain events.

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy launches for Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S on October 26.
