A lot of nerds got really excited when Telltale Games announced that it would release Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Tellale Series. It’s almost as if the universe of Guardians of the Galaxy was tailor made for Telltale, right?
But after the initial announcement, players waited for more. Now, there’s an official trailer and a release date for the first episode. That first episode arrives next month. Players can take on a new adventure with Starlord, Gamora, Groot, Drax and Rocket Raccoon starting on April 18.
Here’s the game’s official description:
“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.”
Now, are you ready for the first trailer?
Although the game’s voice cast won’t feature actors from the Guardians of the Galaxy movies, the line-up is still pretty nice: Scott Porter is Starlord, with Emily O’Brien as Gomora, Nolan North as Rocket, Brandon Paul Eells as Drax and Adam Harrington as Groot.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will launch its first episode of five on April 18 for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
