Square Enix hasn’t had the easiest time capturing the irreverent nature of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy in trailers, but this launch trailer nails it. Dropping a good two weeks prior to the Eidos Montreal adventure’s PlayStation 5 and PS4 release date, the 120-second hype builder has a good mix of humour, outright action, and 80s hair metal.

We recently got to go hands on with a near-finished build of the title, and enjoyed its similarities to the Mass Effect series. “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy doesn’t just wear its Mass Effect influences on its sleeve: it prances them about like Chris Pratt in the opening exchanges of the franchise’s first movie,” we wrote in our hands on preview.
