Developer Telltale Games, known for their episodic “Interactive-Novel” games in a variety of franchises, including Minecraft, Batman, Game of Thrones, and Borderlands, has a history in the field which goes back further than most people realise.  A decade ago, it was CSI: Hard Evidence, and before that, Telltale Games Texas Hold’em.  In fact, every year since 2006, Telltale Games have churned out at least one episodic game based on another creator’s franchise, if not more, and this year is no different.  Today, the company announced Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series.

Fans will be familiar with Telltale Games’ style, which they have cloven to yet again.  Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will be broken up into five chunks, called “episodes” released in sequence at scheduled intervals after the release of the first.  Players will be required to purchase each chapter, either individually, or by buying into Telltale Games’ physical-copy Season Pass for the game later in the year.

No release date has been announced, but Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is expected to see release in 2017, likely timed in accordance with the release of the film “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2”
