Guardians of the Galaxy won’t reuse Marvel’s Avengers game engine
Developer Eidos Montreal confirms that the upcoming Marvel’s Guardians Of The Galaxy uses a different game engine than Marvel’s Avengers.
Square Enix can be the publisher of both Marvel Avengers and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy, but the two superhero titles use completely different game engines. The publisher has already confirmed that Eidos Montreal’s next space adventure Marvel’s GotG takes place in a separate sequel to Crystal Dynamic’s more Earth-based team action RPGs, shortly after Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy premiered during the E3 2021 livestream in June.
Aside from the heroes who play in each game and the setting in which each takes place, Marvel Avengers and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy differ in many ways. While Avengers features multiple playable characters and takes players along a linear storyline with a single ending, Guardians will only allow players to control Peter “Star-Lord” Quill and guide his team through dialogue choices that shape the game’s narrative. It is these differences that have led Eidos to not only declare his next title completely separate from the game. division of last year. Avengers game but use a different game engine to build it – an engine the team already knows from their past projects.
According to The player, the developers behind Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy were asked about the intersection of the game with Marvel Avengers in the form of a future DLC on Twitterwith user All-Father Designs feeling that both titles used the same game engine and resources. Eidos quickly revealed that this was not the case, as Marvel Avengers was made in the Foundation game engine (used for Crystal Dynamics’ Grave robber games), while Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is built in Dawn Engine. Eidos Montreal previously used this engine to work on the 2016 Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
I just want to clarify that they are not made on the same engine. Our game is created by the team that has worked on Deus Ex before and uses the Dawn engine.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy isn’t due out for a few weeks, but fans are already excited to take on the role of the motley group of space thieves from the Marvel comics and movies. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy went gold a few weeks ago, and Eidos Montreal is already revealing other playable character skins such as Dave Bautista’s version of Drax the Destroyer in the MCU. During this time, Marvel Avengers Always releases a steady stream of post-DLC content, with the next batch centered around Spider-Man – who himself has been enjoying a gaming renaissance lately thanks to the PlayStation-exclusive Insomniac series Spider Man securities.
Given the many gameplay differences between Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy and Marvel Avengers, along with Eidos’ familiarity with the Dawn Engine, it makes sense that the developer would want to use a different engine to bring their next space adventure to life.
