Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is scheduled to release in just a few more months and it sounds like everything is coming together very nicely.
Developer Eidos-Montréal has shared a new insight video that shows some details and inspiration for Guardians of the Galaxy and its soundtrack. The video highlights the different styles and flavours that are all coming together to create a unique blend that can only be heard in Guardians of the Galaxy.
The upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy game was announced during Square Enix’s 2021 E3 presentation, to the surprise of many, especially considering how soon it’s scheduled to release. It looks like it’s been in development for years and that the majority of the details just remained under wraps until its E3 announcement. The game felt like a surprising announcement at first, but then again, Disney has been making sure to keep Marvel content coming for fans, with countless projects in the works.
The quality has largely remained consistent as the films and other projects have been released, and the game sounds like it will be no different. The developer’s insight video highlights the distinct and different musical styles found in the game. The game has an “epic orchestral score,” a mixture of licensed hits from the ’80s, and a completely original rock album that’s being made just for the game.
The music is also built and wrapped tightly around the game, just like Star-Lord and his Cassette Player. Players can cue up music, make sure it plays at carefully chosen points, and even during combat to spur on the guardians.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC (digital), and PC via streaming through GeForce NOW on October 26, 2021. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Cloud Version for Nintendo Switch will also be coming to select regions on October 26.
