Okay, so we've all scribbled down the release date for Telltale Games' eagerly anticipated crack at the MCU's ragtag group of anti-heroes, the Guardians of the Galaxy (that's April 18, by the way).

We know what the game's going to be about, and that the Hollywood talent of Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt and co. won't be reprising their roles. But don't be disheartened, Guardians fan, because Telltale has released a new trailer stacked with gameplay and quips that should assuage all fears. introduces a familiar foe who is finally, seemingly ready to get up off his butt and stop floating around all-omnipotent-like on a throne in space!

New 'Guardians Of The Galaxy' Gameplay Trailer Reveals The Return Of Thanos

Alright, are you sitting comfortably? Here's Telltale Games' first trailer for Guardians of the Galaxy.

The first episode, entitled "Tangled Up in Blue", sees the heroes warned by Nova Corps that Thanos has arrived, he's on his feet with the Infinity Gauntlet to hand. And quite literally, too. So, naturally, the Guardians step up to the interstellar plate in order to square off with ol' Purple Chin, AKA the Chinosaurus Rex.

For those of you who weren't able to watch the trailer, take these gifs of the best snippets of action and be stilled.

Telltale Games' Guardians of the Galaxy Episode One 'Tangled Up in Blue' will be available to download on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS and Android for around $4.99 come April 18. There's no word as to whether it will be coming to Nintendo Switch.

A supposed retail version of the game will launch on May 2, but it only has the first episode on it so I don't see what the point is to be honest. But hey, box art! Also, if you want to bag every episode, Telltale's Guardians of the Galaxy will require a season pass! Hoorah, we love those!

Looking forward to Telltale Games' take on Marvel's finest?
