Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series has players in the role of Star-Lord, Telltale confirmed in a press release today.

The original story takes us “from Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond”, and is “set to the beat of awesome music”. Along the way, the Guardians of the Galaxy crew discover “an artifact of unspeakable power”.

“Each of them 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,” Telltale said.

The cast of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is pretty A-list for video game voice acting, although sadly none of the actors from the movie make appearances. That would cost so, so much, and for a dialogue-driven game, be very difficult to fit in with their schedules Here’s the list:

  • Star-Lord: Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series
  • Gamora: Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor)
  • Rocket: Nolan North (the Uncharted series, Pretty Little Liars, 47% of all video games)
  • Drax: Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs)
  • Groot: Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us, League of Legends)

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will release during northern spring. Platform details are not yet available but you can count on all the usual suspects, and a disc-and-season-pass dealio will be available from the get-go. We expect Guardians of the Galaxy to kick off in April thanks to a bit of a leak.

Expect Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series news this weekend, as there’ll be a panel at PAX East. It will also be one show at SXSW the week after, with a live Crowd Play session.
