Telltale Games released the latest trailer for the newest episode for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series. The third episode is set to go live for home consoles and PC starting next week on August 22nd.
The trailer starts with Star-Lord informing the team that they should investigate why the Star Forge brought them to the location that it did before things get more... "weird."
Gamora, however, offers an alternative view on the reason the Star Forge brought them to their current location. Stating that the alternate reality it presents to people could be using the host's memories against them.
While Episode 2 gave us a look into the past of Rocket Raccoon, and his tragic loss, it appears that Episode 3 for Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series will delve into Gamora's backstory. We get a few clips of Gamora and Nebula fighting for the honor of Thanos. Gamora attempts to talk her sister down from wanting to become an assassin but Nebula is stubborn, and stuck in the ways set before her by Thanos.
In the present day we see that tensions between Nebula and Gamora have escalated even further, and that Nebula feels her sister took everything away from her. How you developed their relationship in Episode 2 will likely play a large role in how their relationship will play out in Episode 3.
More hard decisions will be placed in the hands of players in this outing of Guardians of the Galaxy, as they'll have to choose whether to preserve or destroy the Star Forge. While it seems like an easy decision, the trailer lets players know that the decision isn't so easy, as Drax puts Peter in a tough position because he wants to use the Star Forge to bring back his family. Throughout the previous episodes, Drax has been going through an existential roller coaster, coming to terms with not having much to do in life after avenging his family's death. Obviously, it looks like players may be put in charge of either giving Drax some solace in attempting to restore his family or denying him that peace by destroying the Star Forge.
Tough choice, indeed.
Of course, Guardians of the Galaxy is still marked by its comedic flair, and it would be remiss of Telltale to make everything dark and dreary for the point-and-click adventure title without a tinge of comedy. The trailer definitely takes a few moments to throw in a few lighthearted bits to remind gamers that the comedy beats are still there.
If Telltale really follows through with making the decisions significant, I would be really curious to see how this might all play out with the season finale. You can look for Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series' "Episode 3: More Than A Feeling" to launch for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and mobile devices starting August 22nd, or you can purchase the season pass from the Telltale Store ahead of the release of the latest episode.
