Eidos-Montréal adds the ability to turn licensed music on and off in upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy” games. This will allow streamers to broadcast safely.
Important reason: The “Guardians of the Galaxy” licensed soundtrack would have made it impossible for streamers to play games on platforms such as Twitch and YouTube.
Game representatives revealed features in an interview GamesBeat..
Copyright infringement Notorious difficult A problem for streamers who can delete videos or ban their accounts to include licensed music under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).Even the songs featured in video games cannot protect streamers from punishment.Eidos Montreal’s “Guardians of the Galaxy” will feature more than 30 licensed tracks, including popular songs by Iron Maiden, Rick Astley, KISS, Wam and Blondie.
Music is a big part of Marvel’s property that symbolizes the “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
From a narrative point of view, music is how the cosmic hero Star-Lord connects with his Earth’s roots, and more specifically, remembers his deceased mother.
But it also helps to set the Guardian tone, which is one of Marvel’s more cheeky and weird traits.Senior Narrative Director Mary Demar told GamesBeat that music plays an integral role in the game.
