Tunes are important in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy generally, and they’re definitely a big player in the upcoming game.
It isn’t just the licensed stuff, used as part of the actual gameplay via Peter Quill’s Walkman, either. While we can expect to hear a bunch of 1970s and ’80s bangers from the likes of Hot Chocolate, Blondie, KISS, Gary Numan, Joan Jett, Wham!, Culture Club, Iron Maiden, Bonnie Tyler and Rick Astley, there’s a lot more to the score.
This includes a full orchestral soundtrack, recorded at the esteemed Abbey Road Studios no less, and a whole album from fictional band Star-Lord, after which, of course, Pete named his superheroic alter ego.
Get the skinny on it all in the cool new video below.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy releases October 26 on PS5, Xbox and PS4, in standard and ‘Cosmic Deluxe’ editions. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
