Guardians Of The Galaxy game Has An Option To Turn Off Licensed Music

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy features a lot of licensed music. Star-Lord is a lover of great 80s music, so it stands to reason that he plays it often. Sadly, for many players, this leads to a loss of immersion or focus.

Similarly, YouTubers whose videos have that music on would have their videos removed immediately if they uploaded them. Those who do not wish to hear the copyrighted music are already provided with a solution by Eidos Montreal. It is possible to turn off copyrighted music in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.


Marvel's Guardians Of The Galaxy game will include a choice to remove copyrighted music

A recent interview with VentureBeat featured Narrative Director Mary DeMarle talking about maintaining a balance between the seriousness and humor of Guardians Of The Galaxy. According to Eidos Montreal's Narrative Director, streamers will have the option to toggle licensed tracks in the new Guardians Of The Galaxy game.

Eidos Narrative Director Mary DeMarle could not answer the question, but a side note gave the answer. It read:

"yes, there will be a toggle in the game to turn off licensed tracks for streamers."

It sounds like a stream mode toggle, which many games, such as Cyberpunk 2077, have. The need for the mode arises from the large number of licensed tracks found in the Guardians Of The Galaxy feature called 'the huddle'. There is supposed to be a feature that works with the music in this mode


To quote Mary DeMarle:

"You have to listen to them, and then you have to decide if you're going to motivate them or calm them down. You have a dialogue choice, and when you choose it Peter gives a speech that's loosely based on the lyrics of one of the songs."

It's impossible to predict how that will work without music. Even so, it is nice to see that Eidos Montreal has considered their streaming audience.
