In the ultimate case of striking when the iron is hot, the Guardians of the Galaxy won’t just be showing up on movie screens next week. Marvel’s team of cosmic misfits will also be popping up in a number of different video games, guaranteeing that no matter what platform you prefer for your gaming, you’re going to be seeing Star-Lord and crew in the months to come.
The Marvel Games panel at Comic-Con International had plenty of details on this Guardians takeover, and Disney sent out some more details to boot. Here’s what you can expect:
- Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes – The Guardians of the Galaxy Play Set, with Star-Lord and Gamora, was shown earlier in Comic-Con. Other characters will be sold separately, including playable villains like Ronan the Accuser.
- Marvel: Avengers Alliance - The Facebook hit will get a new Spec Op written by Alex Irvine with a special focus on Guardians of the Galaxy heroes and villains. Groot will also be a playable character soon.
- Marvel Heroes 2015 – Rocket Raccoon is already a playable character in Gazillion’s MMO, but the rest of the gang is coming soon. Star-Lord is now available for pre-order, and Drax, Groot and Gamora are on the way as Team-Up heroes.
- Marvel: War of Heroes - Mobile gamers will find a September raid boss event with Guardians of the Galaxy characters prominently involved, setting the stage for the game’s second anniversary in October.
- Marvel Pinball – The new Guardians of the Galaxy table starts off with a four-ball multiball representing the team’s escape from the Kyln, and the action just ramps up from there. Help the Guardians battle Ronan the Accuser, Nebula, Rondu and more.
- Marvel Minecraft - The Xbox One and Xbox 360 editions of Minecraft are receiving a Guardians of the Galaxy Skin Pack to add a little more cosmic power to the game.
