Deceptive visions, open an alternate ending in Guardians of the Galaxy
There will be massive Guardians of the Galaxy spoilers here, so for those of you who haven’t finished the main story, it’s time to stop reading.
In Chapter Eight, titled The Matriarch, Guardians of the Galaxy players are treated to a crazy scene.
It appears that Rucker has manipulated Nicky into adopting the Universal Truth Church. She has become a mother, and believes she has the power to bring back life to her deceased loved ones.
When I met the Guardians of the Galaxy, I explained all this to Peter, who had lost his mother before becoming a Star Lord. Nikki tries to subdue Peter by giving him a glimpse of what would happen if he could go back in time and prevent his mother’s death.
The player is then taken to another scene where they can fight the alien horde that attacked Meredith Quill. After that, Peter’s mother hugs him tightly, which lasts for a very long time and makes him suspicious.
At this point, the player has the option to escape from Meredith’s arms. To unlock the secret ending, though, they’ll need to avoid this and select the “Accept Promise” option. This will show an alternate ending to the game in which Peter lives his life with the other guardians in Meredith’s house.
