The debut trailer for Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy contains elevator music…that’s it, you don’t need to know more, we can all go home now.
No, seriously, what more could you possibly want? Oh fine! The main villain is Thanos, happy now? Also, Drax is more turquoise, with blade like patterns on his shoulders, more akin to his comic book appearance than the feature films, for those who were salty about that.
Beyond that, we see Star Lord being his usual, acerbic self, Groot is, well…Groot, and the first episode will launch on April 18th, which is weird, because that’s two weeks from now, and Telltale usually put up their first trailer the Friday before it launches!? There’s something profound in this, sudden, shift of timing, but I don’t know what it is.
I suppose we’ll all have to play the game and find out.

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.
