Developer Telltale Games and Marvel have released the first trailer for Episode 1 of their upcoming interactive adventure game, Guardians of the Galaxy.

The clip, released Monday, features the Guardians crew consisting of Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket, Groot and Drax confronting the "literal murderizing machine" Thanos as part of a deal made with space cops the Nova Corps.

The fight includes Drax leaping at Thanos using his signature knives and a confrontation between Marvel's big bad and his daughter Gamora.

Set to release throughout the week starting April 18 on Android, iOS, Mac, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One, Episode 1 is titled Tangled Up in Blue, a reference to the 1975 Bob Dylan song.

"In the wake of an epic battle, the Guardians discover an artifact of unspeakable power. 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," reads the synopsis.
