Star-Lord and his squad’s cosmic adventures are not exclusive to the movies; there is a new animated series currently airing on Disney XD, and apparently, a new Telltale Game.
The game is based on the Marvel Comics storyline, which means Chris Pratt’s endearing iteration of Peter Quill is off the table. Instead, the character will be played by Scott Porter (of Friday Night Lights fame). No official word has been released regarding the exact plot of the game, but we hear that the Guardians seek an unusually powerful artifact. Trouble is, evil forces want in on said power too.
Marvel and Telltale has released some first look stills. Check them out below.
The stills don’t really speak much of anything in the way of plot, but it’s great to see the gang in Telltale’s distinct art style. There’s a curious-looking green matter in the above stills. I’m not prepared to say it’s Ego the Living Planet, especially not because it has been said that the Telltale Series’ villain is going to be female.
The game will consist of 5 episodes, each being released after a month or so after the previous one. There’s no official release date yet, but the first episode is supposed to drop sometime between April and June. I have a feeling it is going to be released alongside the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol 2.
