Guardians of the Galaxy was a surprise reveal during Square Enix's E3 2021 event. It was rumoured to exist long before the event but many were hesitant to get hyped until it had been revealed.
There was plenty to talk about once the game had been shown, mainly around how far along it appeared to be. Let's run through everything we know about the games file size as its release steadily creeps nearer.
GOTG File Size revealed early
It looks like we already have a good idea of what space Guardians of the Galaxy will need on your hard drive. According to @PlaystationSize on Twitter, the game without its Day One Patch is 41.24GB on PS5.
We expect this will be the same or similar on all other platforms except for Nintendo Switch, which will run off the cloud.
Guardians will have a Kick-Ass soundtrack
The Guardians of the Galaxy soundtrack has been carefully curated over time and will feature licenced tracks. We caught wind of this during the reveal trailer and gameplay but the developers have gone one step further to clarify their work on this.
They've even gone as far as to say the origins of Star-Lords name comes from a musical interest. Given how well the movie soundtracks complement the content, it appears to be the same case here and we couldn't be happier.
Guardians of the Galaxy Release Date
Guardians of the Galaxy will release on Tuesday, 26 October 2021 subject to any delays. It is set to release on Xbox Series X/S, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. An impressive feat for a modern AAA game.
Guardians of the Galaxy Gameplay
We were treated to over 10 minutes of gameplay with the reveal of the game. It was in this footage that the style of the game was uncovered. Before its reveal, many believed it to be an X-COM style tactics game.
This turned out to be untrue and it is more of an action-adventure RPG. There are for sure some tactical elements to the combat so this is where that rumour may have started.
