Some who have played through the open world game of Minecraft are eagerly waiting for a story, to be delivered courtesy of Telltale Games. They have been part of reviving episodic gaming, bringing thrilling storylines controlled by player-chosen dialogue. And it’s clear that they’re not stopping with a few choice hit games.
Ranging from Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, to The Wolf Among Us and Tales From the Borderlands, Telltale have brightened the dark corner where episodic games might have died. With comic-like styled graphics, multiple choice outcomes and immersive stories, the game developer burst on the market with a freshly revamped type of gaming.
Among the action-driven, stunning graphics and complex gameplay of today’s games, Telltales will remain true to its style for their upcoming Minecraft: Story Mode game. They have released a new trailer and set October 13th as the release of their first episode ‘The Order of the Stone’. The game will have a total of five episodes by the end, generally released a few months apart.
The new sneak peak at the adventure focuses more on the four warriors the protagonist has to track down: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer and Architect. It presented less of Jesse (boy or girl, depending on player preference), and more of the new cast of Dave Fennoy, Grey Griffin, Corey Feldman, and John Hodgman, in their roles.
Players will embark upon the adventure on October 13th, when the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode will officially be released.
It will be available on all platforms, from PC, to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360. Two days later, on October 15th, it will also launch on iOS, Android and Kindle devices, with Nintendo’s Wii U and PlayStation Vita pending.
The game will have see a promotional event in Hollywood on October 12th. Telltale games are inviting interested players at the ArchLight Cinema Dome where they will be hosting the ‘World’s Largest Let’s Play’. The audience will have free access, though there is only a limited number of people allowed. It will be on a first-come, first-served basis.
The crowd will be seeing the first episode ‘The Order of the Stone’ on the big screen, where they will take part in the decision-making together. It’s a similar event to what they did for Tales of Borderland Episode 4 at PAX Prime.
Physical copies of Minecraft: Story Mode will become available on October 27th, with the first episode and a season pass for all upcoming episodes included as they launch.
