Telltale Games and Mojang have announced an episodic series called Minecraft: Story Mode. The game, which will debut in 2015, is coming to Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS and Android. As you can see, the details are still up in the air, since not all platforms have been confirmed and we don’t know what the game will be about.
This is what Telltale said about the upcoming series in their press release: “Minecraft: Story Mode will be an all-new narrative-driven, episodic game series, developed by Telltale in collaboration with Mojang and members of the Minecraft community. Set in the world of Minecraft, the game series will introduce new characters and familiar themes, but will be an entirely original Minecraft experience inspired by the game that continues to inspire a generation.”
By the sound of it, Story Mode will combine the gameplay of titles like The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead with the “story” of Minecraft, whatever that means. It’s worth pointing out that this will be a stand-alone title, so you don’t need to have Minecraft to play it.
