Get hooked on a launch trailer for Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy: Episode 1

Telltale Games will head back out to the furthest reaches of space this week with “Tangled Up In Blue,” the first episode from their Guardians of the Galaxy series. The developer also released a brand new Launch Trailer to go along with today’s launch on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices:

Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is a brand new story of the universe’s unlikeliest Super Heroes: Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Rocket, and Groot.

Each of them has a reason to desire this relic, as does a ruthless enemy who is the last of her kind, and who will stop at nothing to tear it from their hands.

From Earth to the Milano to Knowhere and beyond, and set to the beat of awesome music, you wear the rocket-powered boots of Star-Lord in an original Guardians adventure, where your decisions and actions drive the story you experience.

In addition to this week’s digital debut, Telltale will also release a special Season Pass Disc for Guardians of the Galaxy on May 2. The Season Pass Disc will include “Tangled Up In Blue” and downloadable access to the subsequent four episodes as they’re released.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will be released for the PC on April 5

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment was one of the best games released for the Nintendo Switch during its launch weekend, but we have good news if you’ve been waiting for it to make its way to other platforms.

Late last night, Yacht Club Games announced (via their official website) that Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will be available to download for the PC on April 5. The game is also in development for more than a half-dozen other platforms (3DS, Fire TV, PS3, PS4, Vita, Wii U, and Xbox One), and each one is currently scheduled to be released by the end of April.

Players who previously purchased Shovel Knight (which is now known as Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove) will receive the campaign as a free expansion. But PC, PS4, and Xbox One players who have never played Shovel Knight before will also have the option to purchase Specter of Torment as a standalone download.

Two additional expansions (King Knight’s Campaign and Battle Mode) are also in the works at Yacht Club Games. They’re expected to launch before the end of the year.
