Telltale offers first look at ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ game
Rocket Raccoon and all
Telltale Games and Marvel Entertainment offered a first-look and casting details for “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series,” set to premiere digitally this Spring on consoles, PC, and mobile devices.
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.
The publisher described the game stating, “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.”
This is a big week for Telltale games, the publisher and Marvel Games Creative Director, Bill Rosemann, will discuss the creative process behind the game at PAX East in Boston. The game will then make a stop at SXSW in Austin, TX. Attendees at the event will get to try an early version of the first episode at the Paramount Theater.
The series will feature a star-studded cast of voice talent, including 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.
Premiering this Spring, the series will also be coming to retail as a special season pass disc, which 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. Specific platform details are yet to be announced.
