Coming off its debut in April (right around the release of its Marvel movie sequel), Telltale Games brought gamers into the goofy, space-faring world of Rocket, Star-Lord, and more in Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series, with the series’ second episode to arrive tomorrow.

Ahead of the second episode’s release, titled “Under Pressure,” Telltale Games has released a brand new trailer to give players an inside look at what to expect from Episode 2. Specifically, the second episode will dig deep into the backstory of Rocket Raccoon, while players (as Star-Lord) will once again have to make some tough calls while leading the rest of the Guardians team.

Telltale’s take on the Marvel franchise debuted back in April with the first episode, which sees the Guardians taking on a brand new adventure inspired by the team’s comic book roots, while taking plenty of visual inspiration from the hit film adaptations of the series (most recently seen in May’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2). We reviewed the first episode around that time and found that while it captures a lot of what makes the characters so appealing in the comics and films, Telltale’s adaptation (so far) falls short in a few ways regarding some stiff animations and clunky writing. More of our thoughts on the series can be found here in our full review of the first episode, titled “Tangled Up in Blue.”

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Telltale Series is available now on PS4, Xbox One, PC, iOS, and Android, while Episode 2 – Under Pressure will release on June 6th, 2017. For a closer look at the upcoming episode before its release tomorrow, you can check out the new launch trailer below:
