Great news for all fans of the Starlord: Telltale Games and Marvel Entertainment today announced a brandnew interactive episodic game series based on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will premiere digitally in 2017 on consoles, PC, and mobile devices.
As is usual in almost all Telltale titles, the Guardians will start out with five episodes. We are very curious of how the „energizing blend of humor, emotion, teamwork, and full-on sci-fi action-adventure of the Guardians“, as Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games puts it, will play out for this new series.
Telltale’s unique style of interactive storytelling most probably will provide a satisfying space to explore the characters even more. As players we will be able to take on multiple roles within the band of heroes (I will go for the Racoon, surely), and take the lead to save the universe – or their own butt.
Jay Ong, Senior Vice President of Games & Innovation at Marvel Entertainment, sees Telltale as the „master storytellers,“ – and he is right of course. Telltale’s approach on The Batman has proven that they are well capable to take on an icon and develop it further, to the great excitement of their fans.
Guardians of the Galaxy will be coming to retail as a special season pass disc, which will include the first episode in the season, and grants access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates. Specific platform details are yet to be announced.
Watch the announcement teaser trailer of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series recently revealed on stage at The Game Awards 2016 in Los Angeles! As far as Telltale teaser trailer go, it scores in the field of understatement. But let’s be honest. Who needs more teasing in this case? We are excited already.
