This October, nobody can argue that Minecraft doesn't have a story.

This October, nobody can argue that Minecraft doesn't have a story.

Telltale has revealed the release date of their next annual interactive narrative series, Minecraft: Story Mode.

Starting on October 13th, the downloadable version of the first of five episodes will be available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC. Two days later (that’s October 15th), the game will arrive on Android and iOS devices with Wii U and PlayStation Vita to follow sometime after that.

If digital copies isn’t your thing, you will be able to get your hands on a physical copy of the game on October 30 that will work similarly to a Season Pass: it will come with the first episode, but will require players to download the subsequent episodes when they release. 

Telltale has been in the business of making interactive narrative games based on blockbuster franchises for some time now, beginning with Back to the Future in 2010 and Jurassic Park in 2011. The company really didn’t hit it big until 2012 when they released The Walking Dead, which based its roots in the popular comic book series and went on to win Game of the Year.

Since then, Telltale has released The Wolf Among Us, a second season of The Walking Dead and is currently wrapping up the episodic releases of Game of Thrones and Tales From the Borderlands.
