Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy – In-Game Settings and Accessibility Features Revealed

Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy has gone gold and is just a few days away from release. After some new gameplay running on Nvidia RTX tech and clarification that the PC version would only require 80 GB of space, Eidos Montreal and Square Enix have outlined the different in-game settings.

Along with the usual invert X/Y Axis and sliders for the same on gamepad, there options to hold or press an input in Guardians Mode or when using Star-Lord’s abilities. For mouse and keyboard users, double pressing the directional keys to dash and mouse sensitivity options are provided. Audio-wise, there’s an option to remove copyrighted music (which is ideal for streamers) and a Loud Volume Slider to avoid audio suddenly peaks at the louder sounds.

There are three main difficulty settings – Easy, Intended and Hard – along with Custom which lets you adjust the amount of time Guardians Mode lasts, the cooldown on each Guardian’s abilities, automatically selecting the correct option in a Huddle and more. Accessibility settings allows for auto locking on to the next target along with adjusting the range for the same, and auto-winning quick time events.

Some of the settings can be viewed below with full settings available here. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is out on October 26th for Xbox One, PS4, PS5, PC, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and Google Stadia.
