The video game Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has a secret ending that might see players reaching the credits far sooner than intended. The Square Enix project Guardians of the Galaxy stunned everyone during this year’s E3 unveiling. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is an action-adventure game starring the titular Marvel superhero team, developed by Eidos-Montreal, best known for their work on the Deus Ex franchise.
One of the game’s most notable features is the enormous amount of choices available, each of which has a significant impact on how the story unfolds. There will be a lot of spoilers for the Guardians of the Galaxy game here, so if you haven’t finished the main story yet, you should stop reading now.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy gamers get treated to a bizarre cutscene in Chapter 8, titled The Matriarch.
Raker appears to have duped Nikki into joining the Universal Church of Truth. She has ascended to the position of Matriarch and believes she possesses the ability to resurrect loved ones who have passed away.
She explains everything to Peter, who lost his mother before becoming Star Lord when they meet with the Guardians of the Galaxy. Nikki tries to subdue Peter by showing him what would happen if he could go back in time and save his mother from dying.
The player is then transported to a new scene where they must combat the alien army that attacked Meredith Quill. Following that, Peter’s mother gives him a tight hug that lingers a little too long, making him suspicious.
The player has the choice to mash out of Meredith’s grasp at this time. They must, however, avoid this and choose the “Accept the Promise” option to reveal the secret ending. This will reveal an alternate ending to the game, in which Peter lives out his days at Meredith’s house with the other guardians.
Players will be returned to the title screen as soon as this cut-scene concludes. They can then click Continue to return to their original decision to mash out of Meredith’s hug. After that, players can continue on the game’s main path.
