Telltale have been pencilling away at their upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy [official site] adventure. Now they’ve let everyone know the release date for the first episode: April 18. There’ll be five episodes in this season, with a trailer coming on Thursday, they say. Why is everyone bringing their trailers out on Thursday? Is this some kind of cool new cult? And if so, how do we join?
The first episode is called Tangled Up in Blue and it’s all about the Guardians finding a powerful trinket. Here’s what the blurb says.
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.
As ever you can buy these separately or wholesale with a season pass, which we can spot for £18.99 on both Steam and GOG (not accounting for any discount there might currently be). We’re a mixed crowd when it comes to Telltale’s adventures. I loved the first Walking Dead and played Game of Thrones in a fun and quarrelsome way (my girlfriend controlling some set characters and me controlling others). But John thinks they’re pure cack. But he’s a shapeshifter, and cannot be trusted.
The newest episode of the newest series of the Walking Dead is also coming out some time this week, says Telltale.
