Even though Telltale has a long history of adapting comic book franchises into games (The Walking Dead, Batman) this is the first time they are doing so with a Marvel one. The story is centered around the Guardians discovering an artifact of unspeakable power, desired by each of them (including a ruthless female villain) for their own reasons.
Guardians of the Galaxy is a standalone adventure with no connection to the Marvel Cinematic Universe at all and will be released in 5 episodic bursts. The five episodes will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Mac, as well as the Apple App Store and Google Play. Episode One: Tangled Up in Blue will cost $4.99 and a special Season Pass disc will be made available on May 2nd for $29.99.
