An Amazon listing appears to have confirmed the Minecraft: Story Mode release date, which according to the outlet, will be released on October 27, 2015.
“Minecraft- Story Mode is an adventure game set in a Minecraft world. It is a five-part episodic series that will take you to the Nether, the Farlands, the End, and beyond! Get instant access to Episode 1 on the season disc, and get access to four more episodes as they become available to download. Internet connection required,” reads the description.
We’ve seen some impressive fan-made Minecraft creations since the game has been released, and now an official new creation is coming from an actual game developer. The upcoming Minecraft: Story Mode is created by Telltale Games, known for their episodic games based on The Walking Dead and Game of Thrones, among other great games. The new mode will allow players to drive the story through their decisions, what you say to people (and how you say it), and what you choose to do in moments of “thrilling action.”
This will mark the first time Minecraft will have any sort of story with actual characters, voiced by real actors. The cast includes some notable names, including Patton Oswalt (Ratatouille), Brian Posehn (The Sarah Silverman Program), Ashley Johnson (The Last of Us), and even Corey Feldman (The Goonies, Stand by Me).
Minecraft: Story Mode will be released on PC, Mac, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U, iOS and Android.Pre-Order Minecraft: Story Mode here.
