The problem with having your first game be a success is that ‘difficult second album’ thing; making a follow up that grabs new people without alienating your existing fanbase You can’t just make the same game again, but a bit more. Nor can you make something unrecognizable. So more meaningful, familiar but new, bigger and better but not bloated. No pressure.

Far: Lone Sails began as a university project that, over several years, ended up being a beautiful and meditative experience that built our studio. We couldn’t be more proud of the look, feel and sound of the game, its wonderful handcrafted appeal which has always helped us stand out in a crowd, drawing players in with the painterly style and dynamic soundtrack. Far: Changing Tides is another atmospheric vehicle adventure, as we like to call it, so the DNA is the same but we’re expanding in new directions.

Revealed today during the Square Enix Presents E3 2021 livestream, we got our first look at the newest adventure for Star-Lord, Groot, Gamora, Rocket, and Drax in an all-new and original take on the Guardians of the Galaxy from developer Eidos-Montréal.

Mixing both the look of the comics, in particular Dan Abnett’s run on “Guardians of the Galaxy (2008),” with some influences from the films themselves, there’s an air of familiar that runs through everything we’ve seen so far in this upcoming Marvel video game.

In this single-player, narrative driven action-adventure game, you’ll play as Star-Lord, “leader” of a rag-tag group of aliens, as you embark on an epic adventure through the cosmos. In this telling of the Guardians, … Read the rest
