The Guardians of the Galaxy and Rick Astley? A match made in heaven—er, space. The ’80s icon teamed up with Marvel and Eidos-Montreal to stir up some mischief for players in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy video game. Watch the legend reclaim the meme in the Galaxy’s Greatest Rickroll:
Astley’s “Never Gonna Give You Up” is just one of the iconic tunes that make up the soundtrack for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The game features 30 classic hits, including tracks from KISS, Wham, Iron Maiden, and Blondie. Plus, discover more than 10 original compositions from the fictional ’80s band Star-Lord, which left quite an impression on a young Peter Quill.
But this game is more than just its killer soundtrack. Fire up your jet boots and get your Cassette player ready because Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy takes players on a rockin’ ride across the cosmos. Play as Star-Lord, leading the misfit team of Guardians in a struggle for the fate of the universe. Along the way, explore familiar and new worlds alike as you come face-to-face with iconic villains and fan-favorite characters from over 50 years of Guardians of the Galaxy lore.
This single-player action-adventure game offers thrilling combat, dynamic social interactions, and tons of unlockable content. In combat, utilize each character’s unique skills to take down enemies as a team and use the innovative new Huddle feature to boost morale and power up the Guardians with added flair. Beyond that, players can engage in choice-driven dialogue that further strengthens the bonds of this dysfunctional family and unlock new combat abilities, costumes, and hidden secrets as they journey across the galaxy.
