Last night at the Game Awards 2016, Telltale unveiled an all new adventure game set in the Guardians of the Galaxy universe.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will release in 2017 on consoles, PC, and mobile. Although specific consoles haven’t been mentioned yet, it is safe to assume the game will be coming to PS4 and Xbox One at the very least. The season will be told in five episodic adventures, which can be downloaded individually, or purchased on a retail disc that will include episode one and require owners to download newer episodes as they release. Telltale is the team behind many immensely popular episodic adventure games such as The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Tales From the Borderlands, and Batman.
It is unclear if the game will stay true to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or follow a story of its own, as most Telltale games tend to do. The developer’s CEO Kevin Bruner had the following to say, “players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot’s seat in directing their escapades around the universe.”
Rumors of this game started emerging a few weeks ago, but now we have confirmation. Marvel and Telltale announced their partnership last year, and until the rumors began, many speculated the game would be Avengers related.
