First trailer, story details constructed for Minecraft: Story Mode

We first heard about the collaboration between Telltale Games and Mojango on a new Minecraft: Story Mode adventure late last year, but until now no concrete details had emerged for an episodic series in which literally any story was possible. Now, however, the picture has started coming into focus.

Set in the distinctive Minecraft world, Story Mode tells the tale of four friends who "revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order are the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect." While attending an EnderCon, however, this unlikely foursome led by a man named Jesse will have to go from hero worshippers to heroes themselves when they discover that "something is wrong... something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion."


The game promises to take players on an epic adventure "spanning from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond." As seen in the first teaser, Story Mode retains the series' familiar blocky look, but is brought to life by some notable Hollywood voice talent led by Patton Oswalt as Jesse. Other familiar names and/or voices include the likes of Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens. As expected with a Telltale series, player choice will be a key component of the game, as players must "steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival."

There is still no firm timetable set for the launch of Minecraft: Story Mode, but we can look for the series to launch sometime later this year.
