Today We Tell a Tale of Guardians of the Galaxy

Due this “Spring” there’s actually a chance to check out a Crowd Play preview of Telltale’s Guardian of the Galaxy Episode 1 at SXSW, in Austin Texas, on March 17.

Sadly featuring none of the actors from the films, it does still have Nolan North, like every other game in the universe. Details of the series are still sketchy as my balls right now, but Star Lord has rocket boots, as such, expect gratuitous scenes of him flying face first into things, and generally making a complete prat of himself, whilst Groot and Rocket steal the show.

The full series of Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy will be available as a season pass download, and will also see a physical release, containing episode 1 and unlocking the four subsequent episodes as they become available.

Official Press Release

SAN RAFAEL, Calif., Mar. 9, 2017 – Award-winning developer and publisher of digital entertainment, Telltale Games, along with Marvel Entertainment, today shared the world-first screenshots and cast details for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, set to premiere digitally this Spring on consoles, PC, and mobile devices.

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.

This week at PAX East in Boston, MA on March 10th at 6pm in the Albatross Theater, join the team from Telltale Games as well as Marvel Games Creative Director, Bill Rosemann, to hear more about the series as they discuss the creative process behind this stellar new adventure. The panel will also be streamed live on Twitch.

One week later on March 17th at SXSW in Austin, TX, be the first audience in the world to Crowd Play an early version of the first episode at a one-of-a-kind premiere event at the Paramount Theater, with doors opening at 6:30pm. Audience members will be able to control the story from their seats using their mobile devices to help decide what happens on the big screen! The event will be open to all badge holders of SXSW or SXSW Gaming on a first-come, first-seated basis.

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.

Premiering this Spring, the series will also be coming to retail as a special season pass disc, which will include the first episode in the season, and will grant access to the subsequent four episodes as they become available for download via online updates. Specific platform details are yet to be announced.
