It’s finally happened! The answer to “will there ever be a story or do I just keep building crazy stuff and fighting monsters??” has arrived. And the answer is Yes! There is so much more! Telltale Games sent out info back in December telling us all that Minecraft story mode would be coming and true to their word it has arrived…
C’mon! Great voice actors, with high geek cred, Patton Oswalt as male Jesse, Catherine Taber as female Jesse, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, John Hodgman, and Paul Reubens. And it’s Minecraft. Story. Mode. Telltale is releasing it in their signature five part series format. So the buy in is easy (Steam has Episode 1 for $25.) Digital PC and Mac (and console download) sales start today, it will appear in stores in North America on Tuesday, October 27th, and in Europe on Friday, October 30th.
Episode 1: ‘The Order of the Stone,’ the first of five episodes in the season, is available digitally worldwide today on PC and Mac from the Telltale Online Store, Steam, and other digital distribution services, on the PlayStation®Network for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3, and on the Xbox Games Store for Xbox One® and Xbox 360®. The season premiere will be available for compatible iOS devices via the App Store and for compatible Android-based devices via Google Play and the Amazon Appstore starting this Thursday, October 15th. The series will also be coming to Wii U and PlayStation Vita.
