The release date and time for the Guardians of the Galaxy video game is finally on the cusp and you can still pre-order the Deluxe edition for early access to some in-game unlockables.

Although Marvel’s Avengers disappointed almost everyone, you should be optimistic about GotG as it’s a completely different game. It has no microtransactions, it’s not a live-service experience, and it’s developed by the wonderful Eidos Montreal best known for Deus Ex.

It was only properly announced at this year’s E3, but already it is set to come out for MCU fanatics to enjoy.

Can you play Guardians of the Galaxy early?

There is no early access for the Guardians of the Galaxy game.

Pre-order bonuses for the Standard and Deluxe edition include quick unlocks for certain outfits, but you will still be able to get all these costumes later in-game if you didn’t pre-order or buy the Deluxe copy.

While there is no way to play the game before its launch, the official Twitter account has warned that some copies have been shipped prematurely. This means you should be wary of spoilers on the internet.
