Minecraft creator Mojang and adventure game developer Telltale Games (of The Walking Dead and The Wolf Among Us fame) have something special in store for you: The all-new, five-episode Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series is hitting Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows 10 PC next month! The first episode, The Order of the Stone, debuts digitally on October 13, with retail editions following on October 27.
Minecraft: Story Mode puts you in the blocky shoes of a hero named Jesse (male or female, your choice!), and sets you on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End, and beyond. While attending EnderCon in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior – of the legendary Order of the Stone – Jesse and friends discover something deeply wrong and terrible. Only the Order of the Stone can save the world from oblivion, and Jesse must find them before it’s too late.
The season features an all-star voice cast, including Patton Oswalt, Catherine Taber, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens. Additional casting details for the season will be announced soon!
“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,” said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games. “There are plenty of exciting details we’ve been keeping under wraps, and we’re thrilled that players will soon be starting their own adventure through the Nether to the Farlands and beyond with Jesse and the Order of the Stone.”
You’ll be able to get your hands on The Order of the Stone on October 13 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, and Windows 10 PC, with subsequent episodes following through 2016. Get those pickaxes ready!
