All Articles: Guardians of the Galaxy

Xbox Store Today: The Escapists 2, Guardians of the Galaxy Episode 3, more

Your midweek Xbox Games Store update is here, and two big games are now available to download for the Xbox One.

Team17 makes a break for it with The Escapists 2, their retro-styled jailbreak simulator. Players will follow the rules by day, and sneak through vents and tunnels at night in the search of sweet freedom. Also… there’s a Space Prison.

Speaking of space, Telltale Games will reunite with the Guardians of the Galaxy in the final frontier with the launch of Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 3: More Than A Feeling. The third chapter will introduce an “eccentric being” for players to meet, as they continue to deal with the sibling rivalry between Gamora and Nebula.

More details about both of these games (and a few other releases) can be found after the break. (more…)

PS Store This Week: Uncharted Lost Legacy, Madden NFL 18, Thimbleweed Park, more

It’s yet another big week for the PlayStation Store, and Naughty Dog is leading the way with a new Uncharted adventure and the return of Jak & Daxter.

Nathan Drake is taking a well-earned (and possibly permanent) vacation, but Chloe Frazer and Nadine Ross will help PS4 fans get used to Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Players will venture out in search of the Golden Tusk of Ganesh, but they’ll have to contend with a “ruthless warmonger” who also wants the prized artifact. The developer will also add Jak & Daxter: The Precursor Legacy to the PlayStation Store this week as a PS2-On-PS4 re-release.

To football fans, a Super Bowl Ring might be the ultimate treasure, and PS4 owners will get the chance to reach the big game this week in Madden NFL 18. New features this year include a revamped visual presentation and the “Longshot” Story Mode (starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali).

Elsewhere on the PlayStation Store, a trio of indie developers have added new titles to the digital storefront. PS4 owners will be able to investigate a murder in Ron Gilbert’s Thimbleweed Park, cast spells in Borealys Games’s Mages of Mystralia, and escape from a new set of prisons in Team17’s The Escapists 2.

Finally this week, Codemasters is back with another racing simulation, F1 2017, and Bandai Namco has remastered the entire Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm trilogy for the PS4. Also, Telltale is teaming up with the Guardians of the Galaxy once again in Episode 3: More Than A Feeling.

You can learn more about all of these games (and a few other new releases) after the break. (more…)

See the Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 3: More Than a Feeling trailer before it slips away

Telltale Games previously announced the next episode from their Guardians of the Galaxy series would be known as Episode 3: More Than a Feeling, but now they’ve unveiled a new trailer for the further adventures of the titular quintet:

After tracing the origin of the Eternity Forge to a mysterious temple, the Guardians encounter an eccentric being who might hold the key to unlocking the relic’s true power. But with Gamora and Nebula busy wrestling with the past and Hala still bent on reclaiming the Forge by any means necessary, it falls to Star-Lord to make a crucial decision that could change the fate of the galaxy — and the Guardians — forever.

Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 3: More Than a Feeling will be available to download for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices on August 22.

The PlayStation Store is racing for the future with this week’s update…

First up is the Wipeout: Omega Collection, a new PS4 compilation featuring the last two games in the series.

Here’s a Launch Trailer for Telltale’s Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 2: Under Pressure

Star-Lord comes back from the dead… Drax wants to kill someone… and Rocket reminisces about his part… just your average afternoon for the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Marvel’s cosmic superteam has returned this week for Under Pressure, the second chapter in Telltale’s episodic adventure series, and Telltale has released a brand new Launch Trailer for the add-on:

The Guardians just can’t seem to outrun the past (or their tab), but if they figure out how to control the untold power of their mysterious new relic, they might not have to. With help from dubious old friends and unwilling new allies, Star-Lord and company scour the galaxy for answers. But how long can they elude the genocidal maniac hunting them? And will simmering tensions finally tear the team apart?

Guardians of the Galaxy – Episode 2: Under Pressure should be available to download for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and mobile devices beginning today.
