At tonight’s The Game Awards 2016, Telltale Games confirmed a previous rumour: Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is coming in 2017. Of course, the collaboration with Marvel comes just ahead of the anticipated release of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 due out in theatres in the summer of 2017. The teaser video doesn’t tell us much, but Telltale tells us that this will once again be another five-episode adventure, following in the footsteps of pretty much every other episodic Telltale game out there.
“The energizing blend of humor, emotion, teamwork, and full-on sci-fi action-adventure of the Guardians provides an enormously satisfying space to explore through Telltale’s unique style of interactive storytelling,” said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games. “In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot’s seat in directing their escapades around the universe. We are always honored to be working with the best creative partners and storytellers in entertainment, and working with Marvel on this series leaves us excited to share what we’ve been developing when it premieres in 2017.”
Marvel sounded keen on the collaboration as well.
“With story at the core of everything that Marvel creates, who better to team with than master storytellers Telltale Games,” said Jay Ong, Senior Vice President, Games & Innovation, Marvel Entertainment. “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series fully showcases Marvel and Telltale’s rich legacy of storytelling, and fans will find themselves immersed in an original, character-driven narrative. As part of our strategy to establish a new standard for Marvel games, this is certainly among the great titles to come.”*
Par for the course, the series will also be available on disc after first releasing as a digital download on mobile devices, consoles, and PC in the new year.
