Guardians of the Galaxy mobile game launches today for iOS, Android, and Windows devices
Disney is wasting no time in its multifront assault with Guardians of the Galaxy. Today, the company released Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon, a new mobile game with a completely original storyline inspired by the film.
The game is described as sci-fi action role-playing game that "takes the Guardians and their allies on an intergalactic adventure to recover the five pieces of The Universal Weapon."
Players will initially take on the role of Star-Lord as he rallies his rag-tag crew—Rocket, a gun-toting raccoon with a quick draw and an even quicker temper; Groot, the tree-like humanoid who packs a punch; the deadly and enigmatic assassin, Gamora; and the revenge-driven Drax the Destroyer through galactic locations and real-time strategic combat. Marvel fans will recruit and train additional heroes, engage in gesture-based team combat, and unlock each piece of the story to unveil the identity of the Guardians’ shadowy nemesis.
Other features of the game include the gesture-based real-time battles, 25 unlockable characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy universe, 6 inter-galactic worlds with more than 60 unique levels, as well as two separate modes: Battle Mode and Arena Mode.
Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon is available for $4.99 from the Apple App Store, Google Play Store, and Windows Phone Store and for $7.99 on the Windows Store. It will be launching on the Amazon App Store soon.
