The Epic Games Store is finally bringing the goods now that its holiday giveaway is coming to an end: After A Plague Tale: Innocence was free for 24 hours, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has become the current free Epic Games Store offer – and not just for a day. Users can claim the superhero title over the course of the next week with the offer finally running out on January 11, 2024.

Developed and published by Eidos-Montréal, the single-player game was released in October 2021 and was widely praised for its immersive dialog and story as well as its fantastic soundtrack. Though technical difficulties marred the experience a bit and the gameplay itself was considered to be average, it received pretty warm reviews – perhaps helped by the low expectations for Marvel games at that point, thanks to the disappointment that was Marvel’s Avengers.

Star-Lord & Co. are having themselves another adventure.

Here is the official description of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy:

Fire up Star-Lord’s jet boots for a wild ride across the cosmos in this third-person action-adventure game, a fresh take on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. With the unpredictable Guardians at your side, blast your way from one explosive situation to another, with original and iconic Marvel characters caught in a struggle for the fate of the universe. You got this. Probably.

You play as Star-Lord, so nothing’s off-limits with your bold combat style, from Element Blasters and jet-boot-powered dropkicks to tag-team beat-downs. With the Guardians fighting at your side, call the shots and overwhelm your opponents with signature attacks. Meanwhile, the consequences of your decisions will range from light-hearted to downright unexpected as your journey unfolds.

Your newly-formed band of legendary misfits is set to save the universe in this fresh but faithful take on the Guardians of the Galaxy. Somehow, you set off a chain of catastrophic events, leading to a wild ride through mind-blowing worlds inhabited by iconic and original Marvel characters. Turn up the all-star ‘80s mixtape and get ready to kick it.

You’re the only thing holding the unpredictable Guardians together, so you’ll have to get better at this leadership thing fast. With this offbeat approximation of a family at your side, there will be tears and laughter as you set about tearing into the cosmos together. Whatever’s waiting around the next corner, you know it’s going to be a blast.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy won the Best Narrative category at The Game Awards 2021, where it was also nominated for Best Action/Adventure Game, Best Score and Music, and Innovation in Accessibility.
