Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy game has just gone gold! With the game scheduled to release on Oct. 26, it seems like the developer, Eidos, is right on time! The third-person shooter based on the intimately popular movie franchise has high hopes amongst fans due to its iconic roster of characters like Starlord and Gamora.
The game going gold indicates that it is now in its final stages of production. All areas of the game are now finished and now there are only bugs that need to be ironed out before the game’s eventual release on Oct 26. This begs the question, is the game now worth pre-ordering?
What Does Going Gold Mean?
Going gold inherently is industry-speech for when a game is completed for development. Usually, this means that the game is now at a state where it can be mass-produced for copies. This is based on the olden days of Vinyl Records where a master-copy would be distributed for production.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy – Details:
Set from a third-person perspective, players will be assuming the role of the one and only Starlord aka Peter Quill as they engage in shenanigans of galactic proportions. You’ll be able to use Quill’s elemental gun to take down enemies and will also be able to stomp through using his self-propelling boots.
You can make different decisions throughout the game via dialogue trees similar to how the Fallout franchise works. Based on your decisions, the game can resort to displaying different endings.
With the game going gold, Guardians of the Galaxy will be coming out on Windows, Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X / S.
Is Guardians of the Galaxy Bug Free Now?
Well, probably not. Even though the game has gone gold, it still needs tons of playtesting and bug fixes before it’s anywhere close to release day production. Even when all that happens, you can still expect Day One patches to be flying around.
However, since the game has now gone gold, there will be no further changes in the release date of the game and it will be coming out on the intended date of Oct. 26.
Whether it is going to be bug-free or not will be entirely dependent on how stern Eidos is with their quality testing.
Cyberpunk 2077 went gold too, everyone knows how that turned out, right?
However, if you are very confident with how the game will turn out, you are more than welcome to pre-order the game and take a bet.
