Yesterday was a BIG day for us Telltale/Guardians of the Galaxy fans. Telltale Games, along with Marvel Entertainment, recently shared the world-first screenshots and cast details for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, set to release 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.
If you weren’t able to make it to PAX East and wanted to get your hands on this game, do NOT worry - there’s still another chance to play it early ! On March 17th at SXSW in Austin, TX, be a part of a crowd play of an early version of the first episode at a premiere event at the Paramount Theater, with doors opening at 6:30pm. If you happen to be in that audience, you’ll be able to control the story from your seats using your mobile device - helping you decide what will happen on the big screen! This event is open to all badge holders of SXSW and SXSW Gaming, but it’s on a first-come, first-serve basis, so try your best to make it there as early as possible so you won’t miss your chance !

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.
Having such an experienced and fun cast will aid in the games success and resonate with all us fans perfectly.
If you’re not a big fan of digital copies, premiering this Spring, a special season pass disc (along with the game) will be coming to retail. The special season pass disc will include the first episode in the season, and will grant you first access to the following four episodes as they become available for download via online updates.
*Specific platform details are yet to be announced.
