True to its word, TellTale has revealed a new episodic series, Minecraft: Story Mode.
In collaboration with Mojang, TellTale will be adapting the Minecraft world into a story-driven, choice-based adventure game. The series will premiere next year on “Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android” systems, meaning that Microsoft’s acquisition of Mojang and Minecraft doesn’t appear to have an effect on the game’s availability on other platforms.
Details on Mojang’s website confirmed the systems that the series will be available on, as well as a few other details seen below:
“Minecraft: Story mode will be a narrative-driven video game created by Telltale Games. It will be about Minecraft.
Mojang is collaborating with Telltale and members of the community to make Minecraft: Story Mode as Minecrafty as possible.
The first episode will be released some time in 2015, and will be available on Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android-based devices.
Minecraft: Story Mode will be released episodically, just like The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, or the recent Tales from the Borderlands, which is another developer-collaboration series between Telltale Games and Gearbox Software.
We’re not intending on creating an “official” story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail. It will be a cool game.”
