The release date for Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series may have just been leaked. This is all thanks to a recent listing on Sony’s PlayStation Store. It indicates that the release of the Season Pass for the game will be April 18.
Back in December of last year, Telltale Games released a trailer for the game and stated that it would be a five episode series. Purchasing the Season Pass will let players get all five episodes. You will get the first episode at launch and the remaining episodes as they come out. If you are a PlayStation Plus member, you can even get a 20% discount for pre-ordering it. This deal runs from March 16 to April 18 of this year.
Release Date: True or False?
This release date may be a rumor, but it actually seems highly likely. The movie, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, comes out as early as April 25 in Australia and Italy. The timing of the game’s release would pair quite well with the release of the movie. As history dictates, many games release around the same time as their movie counterpart. This was the case with Marvel’s other big releases, Spider-Man and Iron Man.
Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will have a separate story from the movies. Below is the description from its developers.
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.
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.
