As we rapidly approach the highly-anticipated sequel to 2014’s “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Telltale Games and Marvel Entertainment have debuted the first artwork from the upcoming “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series” video game.
Telltale’s official description reads:
“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.”
Upon the game’s release, gamers will have the option of purchasing individual episodes, or they can purchase a season pass, either digitally or in-store. The pass 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.
The series features voice-over work by 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, and Adam Harrington (“The Wolf Among Us,” “League of Legends”) as Groot.
“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series” is set to premiere digitally this Spring on consoles, PC, and mobile devices.
