Guardians of the Galaxy is getting the Telltale treatment and Episode 1 will debut on April 18th. Telltale Games are well known for their narrative focused adventure games, where player’s can determine the outcome of the story by their decisions and dialogue options. Perhaps most famous for their breakthrough series on The Walking Dead and most recently their take on the caped crusader with Batman: A Telltale Series, they have also been able to have success with some other licenses including, Game Of Thrones, Minecraft and Back to the Future. This time it’s Marvel that are getting in on that Telltale action, and with Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2 hitting theatres in late April, now seems like a good time to jump on the hype train!
The first episode is titled ‘Tangled up in blue’ and will be available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android-based devices for $4.99 USD or equivalent. You will also be able to purchase a ‘Special Season Pass’ physical copy from retailers in North America on May 2nd and Worldwide on May 5th. Some digital outlets will be offering some sweet deals on pre-orders of the season pass. A North and South America PS4 pre-order will get you a Guardians of the Galxay premium theme.
The Guardians of the Galaxy license seems to be one of the better fits for Telltale, considering their past offerings. One of the most highly received Telltale adventures was Tales from the Borderlands which many agree was a hilarious, comedic sci-fi romp. So we can assume that the same witty dialogue and humor will make it’s way over into one of the more lighthearted licenses within the Marvel Universe quite naturally. If you cant wait to see what Rocket Raccoon and Groot look like in full Telltale, cell shaded glory. There will be a trailer dropping on Thursday so keep an eye out.
