Thanks to Telltale Games, a new five-part episodic game series set in the Minecraft Universe is going to debut digitally in October.
The leading and award-winning developer and publisher Telltale Games has partnered with world-renowned game developer Mojang, to make Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series come true. There are five episodes planned for PC and Mac (for direct sale or Steam), as well as for Playstation and Xbox systems, Wii U, PlayStation Vita, and for mobile devices on the App Store and Google Play.
Episode 1, ‚The Order of the Stone,‘ will be on sale by mid-October. As with many of Telltale’s games, a season pass disc will be available in North America and Europe by the end of October.
In Minecraft: Story Mode players will set out as either a male or female hero named ‚Jesse‘ and embark on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End, and beyond to revere the legendary Order of the Stone. It must be found to save your world from oblivion!
The first season will feature American stand-up comedian, writer, actor and voice actor Patton Oswalt as male Jesse and actress Catherine „Cat“ Taber as female Jesse.
