Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy looks a bit like Borderlands on these screenshots

A bunch of screenshots from Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy have emerged online. It seems that in the next game from Telltale the artwork is gravitating a bit towards the Borderlands series.

Telltale Games has revealed the very first screenshots from Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, an upcoming Marvel Universe adventure game from masters of the genre. As you’d expect, the overall style is similar to what the fans know well from other games of the studio, including the most recent Batman: The Telltale Series and The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series - A New Frontier. True, the progression of the graphics in Telltale’s projects is slow, but with every new installment they seem to be getting a bit more detailed and better-looking. In fact, their Guardians of the Galaxy seems to be less cartoonish and more Borderlands-ish. Take a look yourselves:

As always, the game will focus on storytelling, featuring a band of colorful characters known from Marvel comics. These heroes will be voiced by experienced actors: Scott Porter (Lukas from the second season of The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series) as Star-Lord, Emily O'Brien (Eryn from Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor) as Gamora, Nolan North (Nathan Drake from the Uncharted series) as Rocket Raccoon, Brandon Paul Eells (Watch Dogs) as Drax, and Adam Harrington (Bigby from The Wolf Among Us) as Groot.

The first episode of Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will be available digitally on PC, consoles and mobile devices in 2017, but there is no specific date of release yet. As usually, there will also be a boxed version containing the first episode and a digital pass to the subsequent four chapters.
