Telltale Games just dropped the first official trailer for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. This exciting new series from the gaming industry's masters of storytelling will debut on April 18 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, and Mobile, starting with Episode One: Tangled Up in Blue. There are five episodes planned for the entire season, with digital season pass bundles available on all platforms. A physical season pass disc will be released on May 2 for $29.99. But for now let's get to the good stuff! See the world premiere trailer right here:
"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.
"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.
"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."
There are two things we'd like to point out to you all. First of all, Telltale made a statement in its original press release that "additional platforms for release are yet to be announced." This leads us to believe that -- wait for it -- a Nintendo Switch version may be in the works. Of course it could mean that Telltale will be bringing Guardians to legacy consoles, but we think the Switch is the more likely candidate.
It's also worth pointing out that, while you could wait for that physical season pass disc to release on May 2 for $30, PlayStation Plus members can snag the season pass digitally for PS4 for only $15.99. The digital season pass will be available on other platforms for $19.99.
