Episode 1 of Minecraft: Story Mode – Season 2 was released today on PC and across mobile and console platforms. This new season continues Telltale’s blend of option-based storytelling with the Minecraft universe, with the player’s actions and decisions in Season 1 having the potential to carry over and have an impact on the new adventure.
The new episode, “Hero in Residence”, follows young builder Jesse (either male or female, depending on which the player has chosen) and their friends who stumble upon an artifact known as the Prismarine Gauntlet. It turns out that this object will unlock an underwater world.
Patten Oswalt and Catherine Taber reprise their roles as the voices of male and female Jesse, with The Last of Us voice actress, Ashley Johnson, also voicing a character.
An additional feature, Crowd Play, will allow other players to join in and make decisions with their smart phones.
The first episode is available online for $24.99, with the Season Pass disc containing all 5 episodes due to be released on September 5. You can buy the game from online stores or from Telltale’s official site.
