The game consisting of five episodes is practically in no way related to a series of films «Guardians of the Galaxy» From Marvel Studios — developers rely on classic comics. Therefore, actors from films do not take part in the voice acting of Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. The cast of the new game is as follows:
- Scott Porter (Scott Porter) («Night Friday lights», The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series) as a star lord;
- Emily O’Brien’Brien) («Young and impudent», Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor) in the role of Gamora;
- Nolan North (Uncharted series, «Pretty Little Liars») as a rocket;
- Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs) in the role of Drax of the destroyer;
- Adam Harrington.
According to the developers, the game will tell «A completely new story about the most incredible heroes of the universe». «As a result of the epic battle, guards detect an unthinkable artifact, — It is said in the official description of Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. — Each of them has a reason for this relic, — Like a ruthless enemy, the latter in its own way, which will not stop at anything to tear it out of their hands».
Telltale Games also showed screenshots of the project, from which it becomes clear that the visual style of Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series has practically not changed compared to previous games.
