Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series Unveils Action-Packed First Teaser
It’s the Guardians vs. Thanos in the rip-roaring first teaser for Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series.
Slated to premiere in April with the launch of “Tangled Up in Blue,” Telltale’s latest creative venture pits Star-Lord and the gang against the Mad Titan, who has waged war on the Nova Corps. In their darkest hour, the people of the Nova Corps turn to the Guardians of the Galaxy as their last remaining hope, and though today’s first-look promo is light on story, the final shot sees the universe’s unlikeliest heroes preparing to lock horns with Thanos – a battle that won’t happen on the big screen until at least Avengers: Infinity War.
As previously reported, Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series is considered a separate beast with its own unique story, and therefore won’t be beholden to the continuity of the MCU. Whether Telltale Games will enjoy the same creative agency seen in the studio’s episodic Batman series remains to be seen, but coming out of today’s grand trailer reveal, we’re cautiously optimistic that the developer can deliver.
Headed up by Peter Quill (AKA Star-Lord), we know that Telltale’s Guardians series has filled out its voice booth with Scott Porter (Quill), Emily O’Brien (Gamora), Uncharted alum Nolan North (Rocket Raccoon), Brandon Paul Eells (Drax) and Adam Harrington (Groot). It’ll be comprised of five episodes in total, and you can find the official synopsis for Telltale’s latest effort, below:
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.
Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Telltale Series kicks off with the launch of “Tangled Up in Blue” on April 18th. It’ll be available for Xbox One, PS4, PC, Mac, and mobile devices for $4.99, with the Season Pass due to arrive in time for May 2nd in North America and May 5th in other territories – just in time for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, then.
