Telltale confirms Guardians of the Galaxy game in the works

Rumours were true, Telltale has confirmed that their upcoming partnership with Marvel Entertainment will produce a 5-episode adventure game based around The Guardians of the Galaxy! The announcement came from a quick trailer released last night at The Game Awards.

“The energizing blend of humor, emotion, teamwork, and full-on sci-fi action-adventure of the Guardians provides an enormously satisfying space to explore through Telltale’s unique style of interactive storytelling,” said Kevin Bruner, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games, in a blog post.

“In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, 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. We are always honored to be working with the best creative partners and storytellers in entertainment, and working with Marvel on this series leaves us excited to share what we’ve been developing when it premieres in 2017.”
Telltale announced back in 2015 that a partnership with Marvel was created and the first of these projects will land in 2017. No word has been said on if the project will tie into the Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, if the actors will be reprising their roles or if the game will coincide with the release of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 which comes to theatres on May 5, 2017.
