The first trailer for Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy game reveals a menacing Thanos

New, 3 comments

The first episode of Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy game is still a few weeks away, but the new debut trailer provides a good idea of what to expect. The trailer mostly sets the tone, rather than explicitly laying out the story; you can see the heroes during an awkward elevator ride and there is, of course, a Walkman. But it also provides a glimpse at the series’s villain, with a version of the death-obsessed Thanos that looks like a cross between the live-action films and comic books.

The series’s debut is called “Tangled Up in Blue,” and is the first of five planned episodes to release throughout the year. (If you’ve never played a Telltale game before, they’re sort of like interactive dramas spread across multiple episodes, and have spanned series like The Walking Dead and Batman.) Episode one is launching on April 18th, and will be coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.

Of course, this is far from the only upcoming adventure for the guardians. The second film hits theaters on May 5th, while reports suggest that Deus Ex: Human Revolution developer Eidos Montreal is also working on a game based on the franchise.
