Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy PS5 PlayStation 5 1

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, the narrative-based third-person misadventure from Eidos Montreal, will not have microtransactions. While it’s depressing that articles like this have very much become a thing, some fans had worried that the release would follow in Marvel’s Avengers’ footsteps – but that’s fortunately not the case.

There will be unlockable costumes in the game, but you’ll be able to earn these through gameplay – although it is worth noting that there are a handful of additional outfits being made available as pre-order bonuses. Nevertheless, the developer is focusing on creating a high-quality, narrative experience, without any of the live service nonsense that’s infecting everything else.

Has this increased your interest in the release, or were you simply unimpressed with what you saw at E3 2021? Hold out for a hero in the comments section below.
