You may have noticed yesterday afternoon that a bunch of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy footage dropped on YouTube, and it includes a lot of gameplay from the Xbox Series X version of the game.

Above, we've picked out GameSpot's coverage of the first 30 minutes, which includes a pretty cool intro with a rocking soundtrack and various Disney references, before it eventually jumps into some proper gameplay in the official first chapter, giving us a good idea of the game's narrative style and combat elements.

We haven't had a chance to get hands-on yet here at Pure Xbox, but we've got a good feeling about this footage. It looks like the game is shaping up well, which is no surprise considering it's made by the Deus Ex team.

If you're excited for the release, you only need to wait a little bit longer as the game will be launching for Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S on October 26. Pre-orders are available now from the Microsoft Store for £59.99 / $59.99.
