Players won’t have to wait long for the next installment in Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy. The developer announced today that Guardians of the Galaxy episode four will release on October 10, 2017. Called “Who Needs You,” the episode will pick off from where the last episode of the sci-fi adventure game ended. A new trailer and additional information is expected to be released tomorrow.
Check out the official announcement below:

I had a great time playing through episode three, but I do have to note that the combat scenes are growing a bit stale. Despite some excellent choreography, it still comes down to waiting to hit some button prompts. None of the gameplay variation seen in Batman: The Enemy Within appears here, and that makes the action seem like more of a middling affair. It’s not a negative (as the scenes are still a ton of fun to watch unfold), but it’s a missed opportunity.
Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy has been circumventing my expectations ever since the crew killed Thanos in the very first episode, and that trend continued here. I really have no clue where the series will go next, and that leaves me excited. I’m more than happy to be along for the ride with Star Lord and his ragtag crew.
Guardians of the Galaxy episode four is set to release October 10, 2017.
