During one of many world premieres happening at The Game Awards, Telltale’s latest game has been unveiled and confirmed, and it’s none other than Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy!
Unfortunately, there’s not a lot that’s shown other than that it’ll be a five-part episodic series, and will be coming to consoles, PC and mobile sometime in 2017. Go watch the video above to see the first Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series’ trailer (teaser).
Here’s some info straight from Telltale:
“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.”
“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.”*
The series will also hit retail as a special season pass disc, which will include the first episode in the season, and will grant access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates. We’ll have more specific platform details to announce in the coming year.
Star-Lord and Co. will be assaulting our consoles and every platform in 2017.
