A new trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy introduces Lady Hellbender and her love of dangerous, exotic creatures.
The cinematic, which takes place moments after the original gameplay trailer, features The Guardians approaching Lady Hellbender, who is currently conducting a trade. The unfortunate seller, who is attempting to part with the initially innocuous-looking Tara-tara, is eventually consumed by the beast before Lady Hellbender succeeds in taming it.
Intimidated by the preceding display, the Guardians approach Lady Hellbender to trade either Rocket or Groot (as a part of a previously discussed plan) yet the queen of Seknarf Nine sees a more tempting trophy: Drax the Destroyer. Highlighting the game's choice system, Star-Lord, the player character, is able to encourage Drax to continue flirting with Lady Hellbender or let his ego get in the way and... hand her a business card.
While not revealing anything new gameplay-wise, this cinematic trailer does provide some further insight into what may be a large supporting character in the game's narrative. Lady Hellbender is teased in several other trailers, yet this cinematic is the most comprehensive look at the character yet. The extent to which she is involved in the narrative is currently unknown.
Developed by Eidos Montreal and published by Square Enix, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy tells an original story set within the Marvel universe. Fans of the characters can expect to see several familiar faces, like Mantis and Lady Hellbender herself, alongside original creations. Players will assume the role of Star-Lord, dashing about the battlefield and issuing commands to the rest of his intergalactic team. The game will also make use of a licensed soundtrack, featuring a variety of classic pop music, to pay homage to the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Guardians of the Galaxy films, directed by James Gunn.
If you fancy blasting hordes of space jellies as Star-Lord all while grooving to Joan Jett's "Bad Reputation" then keep an eye out for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, which launches for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC on Oct. 26.
