In Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy game, created by Eidos Montreal, the beloved team of mismatched heroes have banded together exploit the disarray of the universe, but a small mistake on their part sets a catastrophic chain of events in motion. Composer Richard Jacques says games with super heroes need an epic soundtrack, which he was thrilled to provide.

To create that epic sound, Richard assembled an orchestra and chorus of 90 musicians, recorded in sections in London's famed Abbey Road Studios. Although it was a challenge during the pandemic, Richard says the end result was everything he imagined.
