Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has gone gold and will be arriving on time on October 26, the devs from Eidos Montreal announced. The team now has one and a half months to implement all additional changes with the Day One update.
The announcement was dropped on Twitter, where the studio celebrated the occasion by posting a gif of dancing Cosmo the telepathic Soviet dog alongside Star-Lord. Going gold is a huge milestone meaning the game is basically finished and has the green light for launch on the appropriate platforms.
It seems the development of Guardians of the Galaxy progressed smoothly this year, with no delays or production problems being reported since the original announcement as part of the Square Enix E3 2021 showcase. Interestingly enough, it has been only three months since the title was revealed and it’s already gone gold. Eidos Montreal didn’t reveal their next game too early, which might be a good thing for some fans who don’t like to wait for too long.
Guardians of the Galaxy will launch on all modern platforms at once — PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch via the Cloud. If a recent leak is to be believed, the upcoming action-adventure will weigh in at a relatively small 41 GB on PS5, although this is presumed to not be counting any following updates.
The pre-load date has also been leaked alongside the game’s file size — if you pre-order the project, you can start downloading it on October 24, just a couple of days prior to the initial launch.
Another thing to remember is that Guardians of the Galaxy shaping up to be quite a looker when it’s launched on PC, as the game will get Nvidia DLSS and ray tracing support. Both features will be implemented from day one.
While Guardians of the Galaxy presumably won’t be delayed after today’s announcement, there are many anticipated titles that will skip 2021. Just some of the latter are Dying Light 2 and Total War: Warhammer 3, both of which are now expected in early 2022.
