Telltale's take on Guardians of the Galaxy gets April release date

Telltale Games has announced that its latest episodic series based on Guardians of the Galaxy will debut its first episode on April 18. Titled "Tangled Up in Blue," the first episode in the series will hit Xbox One, PC, PS4 and mobile platforms at the same time.

The April 18 launch, which will come in at $5 for the first episode, only covers the digital release. Telltale also has a physical release in store for May 2 with a special season pass disc, which will include the first episode and access to all subsequent episodes.

Finally, Telltale says it will have a new trailer to show off for the series on March 30. As details are a little light on the story that Telltale's series is tackling, hopefully this new trailer will give us a little more insight into what to expect. That said, if you're a fan of Telltale's approach to storytelling, then this latest release looks like it'll be a fun ride.
