It's official! Telltale Games is releasing an episodic Guardians Of The Galaxy game in 2017!
The project had been rumored for some time, but the announcement was officially made during the Games Awards yesterday evening! The new title will be released on the PlayStation 4, PC, XBox 360, and mobile devices next year.
Check out the teaser trailer, which is clearly inspired by James Gunn's movies, below...
"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, 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," added 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."
It was also confirmed that a season pass disc will be made available.
Expect further information, including a release date, soon.
Given their work on such pass titles as Jurassic Park and The Walking Dead, as well as the recently released Batman series, fans should be more than excited for what Telltale is planning to do with this popular Marvel Comics property in 2017!
