Telltale recently release new information about their upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy series. Most notably are the details concerning the story and award winning cast…

In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power – my money’s on them finding an Infinity Stone. Each of the heroes has a reason to desire the relic, as does the game’s antagonist. The Guardians will travel from Earth to Knowhere on their journey to thwart this foe that’ll stop at nothing to claim her prize.

One thing I noticed from the press release we got was that it seemed to imply that gamers would only be controlling Star-Lord. When we first reported on the series back in December, it was our understanding that the entire team was playable. I wonder, why the change? Gamora, Drax, Rocket – anyone of these characters could provide an interesting view of the story. Heck, even Groot when you consider his recent Rocket Raccon & Groot comic (mainly issues 1-3).

Telltale also revealed the voice talent. Scott Porter (Friday Night Lights, The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series), Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless, Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor), and Nolan North (the Uncharted series) will lend their voices to Star-Lord, Gamora, and Rocket respectively. Brandon Paul Eells (Watch_Dogs) will play Drax and Adam Harrington (The Wolf Among Us) will play Groot.
