Steve Szczepokowski, Senior Audio Director at Eidos-Montreal, describes how he and his team fused these elements to create a unique musical experience and influence gameplay with the game’s soundtrack.

The soundtrack is infused with the game’s DNA and our use of it goes way beyond the usual expectations. Whether it’s amplifying the battle in the Huddle or bringing Star-Lord’s favorite band to life, every element is carefully woven into lore to tell the story of this rock and roll band of misfits. to strengthen.

Speaking of the rock soundtrack, Steve revealed that he unexpectedly brought together a brand new rock band to create the score of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The story behind the formation of Steve’s band is inspired by the game itself, as Peter Quill takes the name “Star-Lord” from his favorite band of the same name. Steve set out to create Star-Lord, the band, in real life. An entire album was recorded for the game, featuring original songs celebrating the rock and roll, dysfunctional nature of the Guardians family.

These songs are mixed with other licensed pop songs from the 80s in the game’s unique Huddle feature. Players can press Star-Lord’s cassette player to recall specially chosen 80s songs to inspire the Guardians in their battles. Some tracks include music from Iron Maide, KISS, New Kids on the Block, Rick Astley, Hot Chocolate and more!

Guardians of the Galaxy will be available October 26, 2021 on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and PC. Cloud version of the game for Nintendo Switch coming to select regions on October 26.
