Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is premiering digitally in spring 2017 on consoles, PC, and mobile devices, Telltale Games announced today. There will also be a Season Pass Disc released this year that includes the first episode of the season, as well as access to the remaining four episodes as they become available. Specific platforms for both the digital and retail versions will be announced later.
In addition to the first screenshots for Guardians of the Galaxy, Telltale also revealed the story details:
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.
Here’s the cast for Guardians of the Galaxy, which includes Nolan North as Rocket:
- 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
- Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us, League of Legends) as Groot
On Friday, March 10 at 6pm during PAX East in Boston, MA, Telltale and Marvel Games Creative Director Bill Rosemann will discuss the series. It will be livestreamed on Twitch.
Then, on March 17 at 6:30pm PT at SXSW in Austin, TX, Telltale will be hosting a Crowd Play event for the first episode. Attendees will be able to control the story by using their mobile devices to help decide what happens next.
