As the player fight enemies, a meter will build up and allow players to unleash a special ability known as "Team Huddle", which prompts Star-Lord to create a motivational speech and play a song to inspire his teammates. A good speech will grant the other Guardians gameplay benefits, though Star-Lord's abilities will be boosted regardless of the quality of the speech. At various points of the game, the player can make key decisions, via dialogue trees, that will affect the relationships between the Guardians and the outcomes of certain missions. Despite the branching dialogue paths, the core story remains the same and the game has one ending. The plot of Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy takes place several years after a massive interstellar war that left its mark on the entire galaxy, which is still dealing with its devastating consequences. Among those interested in exploiting the situation are the Guardians of the Galaxy, a pack of mercenaries led by Peter Quill / Star-Lord and consisting of the assassin Gamora, weapons specialist and inventor Rocket Raccoon, Rocket's loyal partner Groot, and legendary warrior Drax the Destroyer, who all hope to make quick money during their adventurous wanderings around the galaxy. However, while attempting to scam a wealthy collector, a seemingly harmless bet between two team members inadvertently triggers a small accident, which quickly sets in motion a series of catastrophic events that threaten the peace of the fragile universe unless the team takes responsibility for their actions and eradicates the threat. On Peter Quill's 13th birthday, his mother Meredith gives him the Element Gun, left behind by his father, who departed before Peter's birth to fight a war. In order to make some money, the Guardians head into the forbidden Quarantine Zone, established by the Kree to store debris from the war, so they can capture a rare monster for their patron, Lady Hellbender. Ko-Rel detains the Guardians along with Grand Unifier Raker of the Universal Church of Truth, who was also caught trespassing in the Quarantine Zone to search for his church's "golden god". Ko-Rel decides to give the Guardians three cycles to pay a massive fine. Being completely broke, the Guardians attempt to scam Lady Hellbender. The plan goes awry and the Guardians resort to breaking into Hellbender's personal vault, stealing enough money to pay the fine. The Hala's Hope leaves the station and the Guardians decide to flee to Knowhere, where Quill plans to ask Cosmo the Spacedog for help.
