While Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy is still some months off from releasing for the PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on October 26th, developer Eidos-Montreal has started sharing little snippets about the upcoming title like why Star-Lord is named Star-Lord in the game, and the latest insight into characters is all about Drax and Gamora. More specifically, the new video covers how the team came to design Drax's tattoos and how that influenced more than that and designing Gamora to look extremely deadly at all times.
As with the previous video about Star-Lord, Eidos-Montreal art director Bruno Gauthier-LeBlanc goes over the designs for Drax and Gamora and explains that Drax's tattoos are circular in nature and essentially explains just how many fights he has won and that they also show off the architecture of his home. For Gamora, the character's design is pulled largely from the iconic comics costume that looks very similar, but Eidos Montreal went even further to add things like brass knuckles -- which Gauthier-LeBlanc calls "American fists" -- to her hands and feet. You can check out the video about the design of Drax and Gamora in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy for yourself below:
