Do you miss your favorite team of rag tag mismatched team of dysfunction? Well I don’t know about you, but I do. Do you have to wait until May 5 to get your rocks off?
No need to worry Marvel and Telltale Games got you covered.
“Award-winning developer and publisher of digital entertainment, Telltale Games, along with Marvel Entertainment, today announced an interactive episodic game series based on Marvel’s iconic sci-fi franchise Guardians of the Galaxy. The first of five episodes in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will premiere digitally in 2017 on consoles, PC, and mobile devices.”
I’ve played a few titles from the Telltale series, starting with the Original Walking Dead game, The Wolf Among Us, to the newest Batman adventure they put together. It’s safe to say, that I really enjoyed my experience with each game they’ve produced. Not only do you get to play as your favorite characters from the series but you can ultimately destroy the characters as well. “Your choices matter!” From my experience Telltale is the only true gaming studio that provides you with this kind of experience.
In walking dead, I was forced to make quick decisions that cost characters their lives and left other characters weary of my actions.
As Bruce Wayne, I had to bite my tongue in the presence of evil. All in order to keep my secret identity safe.
But ultimately the choice is truly yours.
“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 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.”

“With story at the core of everything that Marvel creates, who better to team with than master storytellers Telltale Games,” said Jay Ong, Senior Vice President, Games & Innovation, Marvel Entertainment. “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series fully showcases Marvel and Telltale’s rich legacy of storytelling, and fans will find themselves immersed in an original, character-driven narrative. As part of our strategy to establish a new standard for Marvel games, this is certainly among the great titles to come.”
I’m truly excited to see what roster of Guardians we’ll see on this new adventure. The Telltale series always seem to take a blend of the original comic book material and their own artistic story lines to create something both movie goers and comic readers will enjoy.
