Telltale's Guardians Of The Galaxy Episode 1 Is Now Available
Guardians of the Galaxy was a big hit for Marvel, and a fun shake-up for their cinematic universe that has started to feel like it's going through the motions a bit. With that in mind, it's not much of a surprise that they turned to the company famous for making adventure games out of comic IPs to get some extra mileage out of Starlord and his gang of miscreants. And so, with only a month left until Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 releases in theaters, you can now download the first episode of Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy game.
The specifics of this game seem a tad unclear, as someone who's not followed the release very closely. I know it follows the usual group that you know and love from the movie as they go up against Thanos — which is a bold move to make in episode 1 — but where the game fits in is less obvious. The characters all look mostly like they do in the film, and the voice actors are definitely trying to sound similar to their Hollywood actor predecessors, but the events themselves seem separate from the MCU.
At the end of the day it certainly seems like more Guardians of the Galaxy though, so regardless of where or how it fits into any sort of timeline, hopefully it'll be a fun adventure worthy of a chuckle or two. It's available now on the iOS App Store and should be live on the Google Play store before long.
