Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" will be having its own video game series, created by Telltale Games, who made video game series for "The Walking Dead," "Game of Thrones," and "Batman." The video game series is said to be an interactive storytelling video game series.
According to Telltale, the Marvel's "Guardians of the Galaxy" provides a unique blend of elements that makes it appealing to be turned into a video game series. "The energising blend of humour, 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," said Kevin Bruner, Co-Founder and CEO of Telltale Games.
He adds that players and fans will be playing all members of the "Guardians of the Galaxy" in multiple roles. Then they will be the ones to direct the team's escapades around the universe.
Marvel Entertainment's Senior Vice-President of Games & Innovations Jay Ong said that Telltale is the perfect partner in creating this video game series. He said that "with story at the core of everything that Marvel creates, who better to team with than master storytellers Telltale Games.
The new video game series, which will be called "Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series," will be a five-part adventure game. The first episode of the series is scheduled to launch in 2017.
Telltale, though, didn't provide much detail about the video game series or when exactly would it launch. But Inverse is speculating that the video game series will be based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of the "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Furthermore, it's unclear as well if the game will be canon in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. If this is true, it's possible that the "Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series" will launch near the premiere of "Guardians of the Galaxy 2" on May 5, 2017.
