Telltale Games and Mojang have today confirmed the release date for episode one of the highly anticipated Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series.
Episode one in the saga, titled ‘The Order of the Stone,’ will premiere digitally on Tuesday, October 13, ahead of the physical release of the Minecraft: Story Mode season pass disc on October 27 in North America. Curiously, the retail edition will ship with only the premiere episode on the disc, and will grant access to the remaining four episodes in the season as they become available via online downloads.
In Minecraft: Story Mode, players will take on the role of either a male or female protagonist named Jesse, and will journey through familiar locations such as the Overworld, the Nether, and the End on a quest to find The Order of the Stone to save their world from oblivion.
In a press release, Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games, said: “Developed in partnership with our friends at Mojang, this all-ages adventure series kicks off a thrilling story full of many elements essential to the world of Minecraft, combined with Telltale’s trademark choice-based gameplay.”
The series will be available across current and last-gen consoles, as well as PC, Mac and mobile devices.
