It’s officially official, everyone. The Guardians of the Galaxy will star in Telltale Games’ next new episodic adventure game. Announced with a brief teaser trailer at The Game Awards, the footage confirmed rumors that we heard not that long ago about Telltale’s plans with Marvel.
The series will span five episodes and launches in 2017 on PC, consoles, and mobile. In addition to being available digitally, a Season Pass disc will also be available in stores including the first episode as well as downloads of each additional episode as they become available.
As soon as the teaser started, we already knew that it was Guardians of the Galaxy. In the beginning, we see a tape player that says “Rad Mix.” For those who know, the film depicts Star-Lord jamming to some classic tunes in his own tape player.
This tape player is called “Awesome Mix Vol. 1,” which was gifted to him by his mother before she passed. It was truly a great sight to see and we’re glad that Telltale Games is working on this next.
“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 a blog post.
“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.”
Telltale did not make any other announcements regarding Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. The developers did not even specify a release date for the title, however, we can expect more information regarding Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, due to the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in April, 2017
