Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is out today, with the debut of Episode 1 – Tangled up in Blue. If you want to see whether¬†the misfits who save the galaxy on a regular basis maintain their special kind of charm in video game form, you can watch the game’s launch trailer below.

Telltale Games’ newest series tells a brand new story that stands apart from the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy 2 movie. The first episode seems to be mostly about the team’s encounter with Thanos, though we know the story won’t revolve only around the purple destroyer of worlds.

What else is there? Well, we can’t glean much else from the video (apart from the usual banter), but you can’t expect the launch trailer to give too much away. ¬†The only thing I can say for sure is that the game seems to follow the movies’ example when it comes to the soundtrack, which is excellent news.

Guardians of the Galaxy: Episode 1 – Tangled up in Blue is currently available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, iOS and Android. The other episodes will be released throughout the year, because that’s who Telltale Games like to do things.
