Joining the ranks of Telltale's The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, and more recent Tales from the Borderlands releases is Minecraft: Story Mode, an episodic game series that will create new lore for Minecraft. The title was properly revealed earlier today at this year's Minecon convention.
Instead of following the story of Minecraft hero Steve, Story Mode will have a separate narrative with its own characters. "You'll control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt," Telltale explained in a blog post. "Jesse and his group of friends 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 at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends 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 developer also revealed some of the voice actors that will be featured in Season One. "This season will feature Patton Oswalt, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton,Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens. Look out for futher casting details to come!"
Although an official release date was not given to the press, miners can expect the first episode to roll out sometime this year. Of course, we'll have those details for you as they come.
