The Guardians of the Galaxy -- Marvel's cosmic team of misfits -- have infiltrated comics, movies and animation, and soon they'll be adding video games to their impressive resume thanks to video game developer Telltale Games. During his "World Building the Marvel Way" presentation at the D.I.C.E. 2017 gaming summit, Marvel Games Creative Director Bill Rosemann provided some additional information about how the series will explore the team's family dynamic, as well as what could possibly tear it apart.
"We are really taking it seriously and focusing on each character," Rosemann shared. As such, the game will explore the answers to four questions: "Who are they? What do they want? How are they a family? What could tear that family apart?"
"Guardians of the Galaxy" will join a growing list of Marvel characters who are making their way onto gaming consoles, mobile devices and personal computers. Last month, Marvel and developer Square Enix (“Final Fantasy”) announced a multi-year and multi-game partnership that will kick off with the Avengers Project.
According to the official description of Telltale Games' "Guardians of the Galaxy,"
“‘Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series’ delivers a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes, the rag-tag band of outlaws who go by the names Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of the Guardians 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, this five-part episodic series puts you in the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, told in the unique and award-winning Telltale style, where your decisions and actions will drive the path of the story you experience.”
Telltale Games’ “Guardians of the Galaxy” adaptation was originally announced in early December at the Los Angeles Game Awards with a teaser trailer. So far, the only official information about the game released by the company is that it will be playable on consoles, mobile devices and personal computers. No release date has yet been announced.
