Telltale Games will release a Guardians of the Galaxy game next year. The title will be episodic in format, much like the studio’s other games, and the first episode will be made available via disc, with other episodes rolled out as updates.
In a statement, Telltale CEO Kevin Bruner revealed what we can look forward to from the title:
The energizing blend of humor, emotion, teamwork, and full-on sci-fi action-adventure of the Guardians provides an enormously satisfying space to explore through Telltale’s unique style of interactive storytelling.
In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot’s seat in directing their escapades around the universe.
We are always honored to be working with the best creative partners and storytellers in entertainment, and working with Marvel on this series leaves us excited to share what we’ve been developing when it premieres in 2017.
Telltale SVP Jay Ong also commented, stating that the game will be character-driven:
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series* fully showcases Marvel and Telltale’s rich legacy of storytelling, and fans will find themselves immersed in an original, character-driven narrative. As part of our strategy to establish a new standard for Marvel games, this is certainly among the great titles to come.
