MTV has reported that the Facebook game, Marvel: Avengers Alliance, will add the Guardians of the Galaxy as playable characters, just in time for their film debut in August. Marvel's VP of Games, TQ Jefferson, had the following to say: "You've got Groot, who is a massive tree and is very physical and monstrous like The Hulk. Rocket is going to pack a lot of heat with the array of guns he has available. You've got Gamora, an assassin and the deadliest woman in the known universe. Drax has a couple of big knives and is just as dangerous as Gamora. Then you have Star-Lord, the swashbuckler, who plays the lead role on the team. He'll have an array of abilities, he's pretty versatile."
Also, in other Guardians of the Galaxy video game news, online multiplayer game Marvel Heroes will be adding a new costume for playable character, Rocket Raccoon (pictured to the left). It is called the 'Timely Inc.' costume and is what Rocket wore in his Annihilators miniseries while working for the company of the same name. Shout-out to our main man, Leo Wyld, for hitting us up with that info.
