Telltale Games has been on fire since the first season of their The Walking Dead game. They proved they can bring to us compelling, original standalone stories from popular properties, Batman being one of their biggest “gets” as far as comic book/TV/movie franchises go. Late 2016 at The Game Awards, Telltale Games revealed alongside Season 3 of The Walking Dead their newest licensed title, Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. Not much else was known at the time apart from the announcement trailer showing a familiar cassette tape floating through space. But now, thanks to GameStop, we have a plot.
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.
