Looks like GameStop has spilled the beans on both the synopsis and release date for Telltale’s Marvel venture, Guardians of the Galaxy.
According to a listing on the retailer’s website, Guardians of the Galaxy is set to release on April 27. Granted, the date could be a place holder, but whatever the case, the chain has now pulled the date from the product page.
The release date noted by GameStop would put the game’s release one week ahead of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2’s US theatrical release in May.
GameStop also has the title’s synopsis readily available, and since it hasn’t disappeared from the site, we’ve posted it below.
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.
Marvel announced it had partnered with Telltale for a new game series back in 2015. In November of last year, a document released in connection with the SAG-AFTRA strike revealed the project was a Guardians of the Galaxy game set for a 2017 release.
Telltale announced the game via a teaser video the following month during The Game Awards 2016.
Again, since Telltale has not announced a release date for its latest episodic adventure, keep GameStops’s release date filed away in your head as a placeholder. For now.
Like Telltale’s previous titles, the retail release will come as a Season Pass disc with the first episode in the season. Access to the remaining episodes will be made available for download upon release.
Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will be released on consoles, mobile, and PC.
