Drax, the Destroyer’s look in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is reflected in an in-game skin in a new Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy screenshot. Players will step into the jet-powered boots of Star-Lord as he leads the cosmic squad on an epic adventure in Eidos-forthcoming Montréal’s sci-fi superhero game. A fresh trailer for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy provides fans a closer look at the plot and gameplay of the single-player action game ahead of its release.
Unlike Marvel’s Avengers, another Square Enix action game based on a Marvel Comics team, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a single-player-only experience. Rather than picking from among the team’s numerous cosmic misfits, the player controls just Star-Lord.
However, because he is the Guardians’ commander, he may give them instructions in both combat and narrative situations. Peter Quill can scan the battlefield and distract adversaries with his jet boots and elemental weapons, allowing his allies to do massive damage. Because Star-Lord is the only playable character, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is a strongly narrative-driven game, with player choices having distinct effects on the plot.
A peek at a Marvel Cinematic Universe-inspired skin for Drax was shown in a recent tweet from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The game is expected to have a variety of decorative skins for each of the Guardians, based on their appearances in comic books and other media.
Drax’s MCU skin has unique grey skin and scar-like tattoos, similar to Dave Bautista’s portrayal of the character in films like Guardians of the Galaxy and Avengers: Infinity War. While all five Guardians are anticipated to get MCU-inspired skins in the final game, Drax’s is the first to be seen.
With additional chapters scheduled for years in the future, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has evolved to become a tremendously popular and influential film series. As a result of their success, several contemporary Marvel games, such as Marvel’s Spider-Man and Marvel’s Avengers, include skins based on their live-action depictions.
Iron Man MCU skin was just introduced to Crystal Dynamics’ multiplayer action game Marvel’s Avengers, which mimics the iconic armor worn in the character’s initial big-screen appearance. While skins in Marvel’s Avengers must be purchased with actual money, all cosmetic items in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy are acquired via gameplay.
Players will be able to personalize Star-Lord and the rest of the Guardians squad using vintage comic designs and other adaptations in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Due to the immense popularity of the live-action series, Marvel Cinematic Universe skins are commonly sought in contemporary Marvel games. With Drax the Destroyer’s MCU skin properly representing Dave Bautista’s quick and raucous brawler, it’s safe to assume that the rest of the game’s skins will follow suit.
