Players will control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt. 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.
If you have played a Telltale title before, then you will know the formula that will apply to this game. Minecraft: Story Mode will be an interactive game that looks and feels like Minecraft & is consistent with its universe but cooked with Telltale’s ingredients of role-playing and decision-making. According to Telltale’s Job Stauffer, role-playing is an essential element of the story. In addition, with a team of amazing actors, the characters in the game are going to be fascinating; each with a personality that reflects the different player types found in Minecraft.
In conclusion, we admit that this game has sparked our curiosity and we are looking forward to try it out and report our findings to you. It has been confirmed that the game will be released on October 15th. You can check the trailer for this game below.
