With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 set to be released on May 2nd, Marvel fans can get a taste with a new adventure in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series next month. Telltale Games has announced that the first of five episodes for the game, “Tangled up in Blue,” will be released on April 18th. The developer has also released a trailer for the game, which can be seen above, with an interesting surprise — which I kind of wish they’d saved for unveiling during gameplay.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of them has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands.
From Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond, and set to the beat of awesome music, you wear the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, where your decisions and actions drive the story you experience.
The series will feature a star-studded cast of voice talent, including Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series) as Star-Lord, Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor) as Gamora, Nolan North (the Uncharted series, Pretty Little Liars) as Rocket, Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs) as Drax, and Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us, League of Legends) as Groot.
The first episode will cost $4.99USD and be available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, and mobile devices with a $29.99USD “Season Pass” disc version available on May 2nd.
