It was late last year that we learned Telltale Games is working on an episodic Guardians of the Galaxy series, and while the story has been shrouded in secrecy (all we really know is that it appears to be taking inspiration from both the comics and movie), the first details may have now been revealed.
In a listing on retailer GameStop, a synopsis has been posted which drops some hints about the plot!
"‘Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series’ delivers a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest heroes, the rag-tag band of outlaws who go by the names Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot. In the wake of an epic battle, 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 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, this five-part episodic series puts you in the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, told in the unique and award-winning Telltale style, where your decisions and actions will drive the path of the story you experience."
Like most listings, this should be taken with a pinch of salt for the time being. After all, we don't know if it's come directly from Telltale or is something the site has written itself or even found online. That line-up of heroes was to be expected anyway, while the team attempting to find a powerful cosmic relic definitely sounds about right. However, it sounds like Star-Lord will be the only playable character!
That makes sense, but it would have been fun to shake things up a little by taking control of different members of the Guardians. However, keeping the focus on Peter Quill means players will be able to influence his relationship with the likes of Gamora and Groot, and that's definitely no bad thing.
