Telltale Games finally confirmed the rumors that their next game is set to be based on Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy. The game is set to release sometime next year and will be released in the now familiar episodic fashion with 5 episodes expected. Players will take on multiple roles within the ragtag band of heroes, and take the pilot’s seat in directing their escapades around the universe.

Jay Ong, Senior Vice President, Games & Innovation, at Marvel Entertainment, said of the move, “Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series fully showcases Marvel and Telltale’s rich legacy of storytelling, and fans will find themselves immersed in an original, character-driven narrative. As part of our strategy to establish a new standard for Marvel games, this is certainly among the great titles to come.”

An official teaser trailer was released at last nights Game Awards hinting at a groovy sound track but not much else. However if the standards match Telltale previous series such as The Walking Dead, Tales from the Borderlands and the currently ongoing Batman series, players should be in for a treat.
