While Telltale Games has been quite busy on the episodic front between Batman: The Enemy Within and Minecraft: Story Mode Season Two, it hasn’t forgotten about its beloved Marvel episodic series Guardians of the Galaxy. The first three chapters of the series have told an intriguing story thus far – and things are about to pick up.
The company announced on Twitter today that it will be releasing the fourth episode in the Guardians of the Galaxy series next week, starting on October 10th. In addition, it’s confirmed that the first trailer for the new chapter, Who Needs You, will debut tomorrow morning on its Twitter feed. (We’ll post it here shortly thereafter.)
The publisher noted, “The next episode of #GuardiansoftheGalaxy, “Who Needs You” premieres Tuesday, October 10. Watch the trailer here tomorrow morning!” It also features a picture of Drax hanging onto a rocket glider, along with the text for the game.
So far, the company hasn’t let on what we can expect in the fourth chapter, but that’s kind of expected, since it’s been surprising us with a few turns in the Guardians of the Galaxy series thus far, especially with what happened to the world-dominating Thanos in episode one. (We won’t spoil it here – just play it.) More than likely, it will continue the adventures of Star-Lord and the gang, as they deal with all sorts of old and new problems.
The game will continue to be based around decision making, so you may want to be careful with the choices you make within the game – you never have any idea who might turn on you based on your actions.
The episode will be available for purchase at $4.99, or you can buy the Season Pass and download it when it becomes available. Either way, you’re in for a fun time with the Guardians crew, even when things take a slight turn for the worse. (That’s when they’re at their best, right?)
Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, mobile devices and PC, and will be coming sometime later this year to the Nintendo Switch, though a release date hasn’t been given yet.
