Fans of Telltale’s The Walking Dead have been treated to news recently that season 3 kicks off on December 20th for home consoles, PC and mobile devices. It’s a comforting bit of news for the lovers of the undead series. Well, for gamers looking for a more upbeat and entertaining experience that isn’t a hollowed out tree trunk of death and despair, Telltale has another series due for release in early 2017… Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series.
The five episode first season will launch on home consoles, PC and mobile devices as usual. They don’t reveal a darn thing about the new series, but they did write about it with a hint of enthusiasm over on their official website.
Kevin Bruner, co-founder and CEO of Telltale Games, explained in the announcement a little bit of what gamers can expect from Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series…
“In Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, 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. We are always honored to be working with the best creative partners and storytellers in entertainment, and working with Marvel on this series leaves us excited to share what we’ve been developing when it premieres in 2017.”
As mentioned, they don’t actually reveal anything but you do get to see a flying walkman in space in the teaser trailer below.
So who wants to take bets on whether or not this will underperform Telltale’s The Walking Dead: Season 3 but outperform Batman: The Telltale Series and Tales From The Borderlands? Huh, any takers?
Speaking of Batman: The Telltale Series, the game’s first season is set to wrap up by the end of this year. They mentioned previously that the fifth and final episode will launch by December 31st if things go over well. This means that there’s going to be a small bit of crossover between The Walking Dead: Season 3, which airs on December 20th, and the final episode of Batman.
They don’t say exactly when in early 2017 Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will debut, but I’m guessing it’s going to start just as The Walking Dead: Season 3 – A New Frontier is ending.
You’ll have to stay tuned in for more info regarding Telltale’s latest big project, which is due out for home consoles, PC and mobile devices… as usual.
