A GameStop pre-order page revealed the release date and plot direction for Telltale Games’ upcoming Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy adventure title.
According to the website, the game is slated to launch on April 25th. The date was later pulled from the page, which could mean it was either a leak or a mistake, but such a release would make sense as it would put the game’s launch right before the release of the film sequel in early May.
As for the plot details, the GameStop synopsis suggests players will exclusively play as Star-Lord, leading his team through a galactic fight as each Guardian attempts to complete their own agenda.
“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series delivers a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes, the rag-tag band of outlaws who go by the names Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each of the Guardians 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, this five-part episodic series puts you in the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, told in the unique and award-winning Telltale style, where your decisions and actions will drive the path of the story you experience.”
Telltale’s Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy was first announced at The Game Awards 2016, coming to “consoles, PC, and mobile.”
