Premise: In the wake of an epic battle, notes Telltale, “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 will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands. From Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond, this five-part episodic series puts you in the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure.” Despite the Star-Lord focus, players will have the ability to control each of the characters and discover their past histories in a variety of ways.
Telltale Game Executives Producer Justin Lambros Says: “The movie did such a great origin story getting this group together, so we didn’t want to redo that and try to one-up an origin story. What we wanted to do was show these characters together, but then dig into their past, which in turn will reveal why the Guardians make sense and why they stick together.” Adds Marvel Games Executive Creative Director Bill Rosemann, “We looked at the film, we looked at cartoons, we looked at comic books, and we brought our own ideas to the table. If you’re an established Guardians fan, it will feel very familiar. That said, you will see situations, settings and characters that you’ve never seen before.” [Source: The Verge]
