And it's coming to just bout every platform.
In the past, Telltale has had some big bombshells, including 'Game of Thrones,' but come October 13th, the Telltale portfolio will reach a new plateau. 'Minecraft: Story Mode - A Telltale Games Series' Episode 1: 'The Order of the Stone' will be released this October. It will first hit as a digital offering for the PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, and 360 on October 13th. On October 15th, it will come to iOS and Android. At some point, it will also come to the Wii U and Vita.
'The Order of the Stone' will be the first episode of a five episode series. Even though the other four episodes will be released over 2016, Telltale will be offering a boxed retail version, the 'Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Pass Disc,' (PS4, Xbox One, PS4, & 360) starting on October 27th in North America. This version will have the first episode on disc, and will provide access to the other episodes as they are released.
Though 'Minecraft' has not been known as a game with a set story and characters, Telltale is teasing something very indulgent, and the cast likewise a head-turner.
In Minecraft: Story Mode, playing as either a male or female hero named 'Jesse,' you'll embark on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End, and beyond. You and your friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect; slayers of the Ender Dragon. While at EnderCon in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior, Jesse's friends discover that something is wrong... something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and you must set out on a quest to find The Order of the Stone if you are to save your world from oblivion.
The season will feature Patton Oswalt as male Jesse, Catherine Taber as female Jesse, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens. Additional casting details for the season are yet to be announced.
