Minecraft: Story Mode Approaches

If I have to explain what original Minecraft is to you, this actually may be a good place for you to start. Because for many ‘crafters, Minecraft is not just a game, it’s a lifestyle. And with this new release, Telltale Games may just be making an old game over anew for you… Thousands of people indulge in the Minecraft world, even dabbling in the buycraft world too. With so many facets to the game, there’s no wonder why it’s so popular.

In Minecraft: Story Mode, playing as either a male or female hero named ‘Jesse,’ you’ll embark on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End, and beyond. You and your friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect; slayers of the Ender Dragon. While at EnderCon in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior, Jesse’s friends discover that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and you must set out on a quest to find The Order of the Stone if you are to save your world from oblivion.

So, will this capture the hearts of an existing generation of Minecraft addicts, or will they completely dismiss it and opt to enjoy their online Minecraft servers instead, or could this expand the franchise to another brand of games? Only time will tell, but in the meantime, craft up some popcorn and watch.

Episode 1: ‘The Order of the Stone,’ the first of five episodes in the season, will premiere digitally worldwide on Tuesday, October 13th this year.

Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series season pass disc will be available at retail in North America on Tuesday, October 27th.

The season will feature Patton Oswalt as male Jesse, Catherine Taber as female Jesse, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens.
