Telltale's 'Guardians of the Galaxy' game could be officially unveiled early next month

mystery solved telltales upcoming marvel game will be guardians of the galaxy vol 2 feat
It was announced last year that Marvel would partner with Telltale Games on a new series of episodic adventure games. Now, it’s been confirmed that the project will be based on the Guardians of the Galaxy, the plucky team of interstellar heroes who starred in the third-highest grossing movie of 2014.

The news broke as a result of the ongoing voice actosr strike, which will impact the development of many video games scheduled for release next year. A list of affected titles released by the voice actors’ union, the Screen Actors Guild — American Federation of Television and Radio Artists, or SAG-AFTRA, includes the previously unannounced Guardians of the Galaxy: The Video Game, according to a report from Comic Book Movie.

Upon closer inspection, it was discovered that the list attributed the Guardians of the Galaxy game to a company operating under the name O’Farrell Enterprises, LLC. Given that the upcoming third season of Telltale’s video game adaptation of The Walking Dead was also attributed to this entity, it was determined that O’Farrell Enterprises is a trade name used by the studio.

The list confirmed pre-existing rumors that Telltale was working on a Guardians of the Galaxy game, according to a report from Eurogamer. Apparently, the title is set to be revealed at the Game Awards on December 1.

It’s not difficult to see why Telltale would get the chance to adapt this particular property. As we saw in Tales from the Borderlands, the team has a knack for blending sci-fi and comedy, Based on the response to the studio’s ongoing Batman adaptation, it’s more than capable of working with superheroes.

When the Marvel-Telltale collaboration was announced in April 2015, a 2017 release date was mentioned. While plans could have changed in the eighteen months since then, it would certainly make sense for the game to be released around the same time that Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 hits theaters in May.

Square Enix and Eidos-Montréal have revealed the "almost complete" soundtrack for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, and fans of classic '80s tunes will love it. The list includes everything from meme songs like Rick Astley's Never Gonna Give You Up to hair-metal classics like Kickstart My Heart by Mötley Crüe.

The list includes 28 licensed songs from the 1980s and two original songs performed by the in-universe Star-Lord Band, the latter of which received two animated music videos.

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy nails the superhero team dynamic
The Guardians of the Galaxy stand together in alternate costumes.

When Square Enix announced Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy at E3, I was left a little confused. I was expecting a co-op multiplayer game ala Marvel’s Avengers, where everyone controls a different hero. Instead, I learned that it’s a completely solo experience where the player only directly controls Star-Lord, while also being able to issue commands to Drax, Groot, Rocket Racoon, and Gamora, but not play as them.

At first glance, it seemed like an obvious missed opportunity. I mean, who wants to play as Star-Lord when Groot is standing right there? But after playing a 90-minute demo of the game, I’m completely sold on the concept. The traffic-directing gameplay of Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy nails the team-based dynamic of a Marvel squad better than any superhero game I’ve played.
A sly parody
I started off a little ways into the story, as my team lazed aboard the Milano. After bantering with Rocket Racoon and getting some of his tragic backstory, I jumped in the cockpit and navigated to our first mission. We needed to head down to a planet and grab parts to fix the ship -- it seemed a pesky llama chewed through some wires.
