Guardians of the Galaxy, more than any other superhero movie I can think of, has always had a heavy focus on music. Continuing that trend, the upcoming Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy video game launching later this month has released a playlist to get you pumped up.
Additionally, Eidos-Montréal have debuted a new, very ‘80s music video to celebrate the official release of “Zero to Hero,” the second single from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy’s Star-Lord Band. Both of the group’s singles are also featured on the playlist. Check out Zero to Hero below.
The cartoon video gives viewers a taste of why superfan Peter Quill was inspired to adopt the “Star-Lord” moniker in the game’s universe, giving some extra background to the beloved character. On top of that, the Star-Lord Band full-length album will be released standalone alongside the game when it launches.
The “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Original Video Game Playlist” features 30 iconic licensed tracks from legendary artists such as Mötley Crüe, Bonnie Tyler, Billy Idol, Pat Benetar, Def Leppard, BLONDIE, and many more. All songs on the playlist will also be featured in the game itself, with an optional toggle for players who wish to replace them with stream-safe alternatives as needed, which is a thoughtful touch. You can check out the playlist here.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be available on PlayStation 5 , PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One consoles, along with PC, and streaming via GeForce NOW on October 26, 2021.
