With Telltale Games having finished up their episodic run with Batman: The Telltale Series back in December, and looking to finish up The Walking Dead: A New Frontier (aka Season 3, which Episode 3 just released a few days ago), the developer is now looking ahead to its next release: Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series.
The good news? It's coming a lot sooner than you think. Like, very soon. As in two-and-a-half weeks away soon. Yeah.
As such, Telltale has shared the trailer for Episode One: Tangled Up in Blue, and it showcases the same humor that James Gunn infused into the movie from a few years back. Thanos, who most will know as the big bad behind the Marvel Cinematic Universe currently, is also shown to have a part in the episodic series as an antagonist.
The plot as detailed by Telltale reveals that the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power in the wake of an epic battle, with each of them having a reason for desiring it along with a new, ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind.
Take a look at the trailer below.
Given that the game appears to be set in its own canon (separate from the MCU), it's possible Telltale might throw a couple of curveballs at fans with some unexpected reveals, similar to what they did with Batman: The Telltale Series. Also, Nolan North plays the voice of Rocket Raccoon, so get hype!
Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is set to release on April 18 on PC, PS4, Xbox One, Android, and iOS.
