Today, Telltale Games and Mojang announced that Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series is in development and is set to premiere in 2015. Minecraft: Story Mode will be a narrative driven, episodic game series, to be developed by Telltale. Of course we can expect a collaboration with Mojang and members of the Minecraft community in continuing on in the development of this game.
The game series is set in the world of Minecraft with the introduction of new characters and the maintaining of familiar themes. The experience however is said to be entirely original from the Minecraft experience as Minecraft: Story Mode will be separate from the core Minecraft game. Minecraft: Story Mode is still currently in development and has not been rated by the ESRB. The series will be published digitally in 2015 by Telltale Games in partnership with Mojang.
“People really like the idea of stories about Minecraft, but forcing a narrative into our core game experience would restrict players’ freedom to view the world in their own unique ways. Instead, letting them explore an alternate interpretation via Minecraft: Story Mode, driven by the proven might of Telltale, seems like a no-brainer,” said Owen Hill, Chief Word Officer at Mojang. “We’re big fans of Telltale Games at Mojang, and we can’t wait to reveal more details on Story Mode soon.”
Minecraft: Story Mode will be available to download in 2015 on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
