You’ll get to listen to these incredible tracks them as you progress through the game, as well as on the jukebox that’s on the Milano. Some of them will also play a key role during the Huddle, a key gameplay mechanic in combat. You will have the opportunity to choose between two bangers on Star-Lord’s cassette player to try and motivate the Guardians and overwhelm your enemies. They won’t know what hit them.
All songs on the playlist will be featured in the game itself, with an optional toggle for players who wish to mute and replace them with stream-safe alternatives as needed.
