Although many gamers counted on this, having seen in the official trailer Guardians of the galaxy system of player selection and dialogue options. However, this is not worth hoping for: the developers have confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy is a linear action adventure game, and nothing more.
The game was announced during E3 2021 in June and is due to launch this October. The choice-based dialogue system and space exploration suggested a Mass Effect-style RPG. Apparently this is not the case.
In conversation with RPG Site Lead Creative Director Jean-François Dugas confirmed that Guardians of the Galaxy will have “some RPG elements,” but “it’s primarily an action adventure.” However, some decisions of the player will give the scenes a “different aftertaste”, others may even cause new scenarios.
The game’s plot will be linear. Ironically, Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy is exactly the same. It will be a story with the same development for all gamers.
Its linearity will send gamers on the same epic adventure. However, the choices made during the journey will allow players to get different perceptions of certain moments. Post-credit scenes will show the consequences of your decisions.
