Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy comes to Windows and Windows Phone

I am so excited for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy which hits theaters on August 1st. The movie looks fantastic. As we wait for the movie, Marvel has released the game Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon for us to get acquainted with this ragtag group of characters.

The Guardians of the Galaxy include Star-Lord, Rocket the gun-toting raccoon, the tree-like humanoid Groot, the mysterious and deadly assassin Gamora, and Drax the Destroyer. You play as the Guardians in the game on a brand new adventure to recover the five pieces of The Universal Weapon before it falls into the hands of the villainous Ronan the Accuser. As you play, you can unlock, upgrade and control 25 characters from the Guardians of the Galaxy universe. And you travel through the galaxy battling through more than 60 levels of real-time, gesture-based combat in Story Mode.

You can buy Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon from the Windows Store for $7.99 (U.S.) or from the Windows Phone Store for $4.99 (U.S.).
