Based on Minecraft: Story Mode’s latest trailer, it looks like Telltale’s episodic series will take place after Minecraft proper.
The story trailer for episode 1, “The Order of the Stone,” references Minecraft’s boss fight with the Ender Dragon, and says that the four heroes who defeated the beast became part of legend in the series’ world. But Story Mode won’t be focusing on building and survival, it will follow protagonist Jesse and a group of characters voiced by actors like Ashley Johnson, Dave Fennoy, and Paul Reubens.
“The Order of the Stone” will come to PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360 digitally on October 13th, while the iOS and Android versions will be available on October 15th. Minecraft: Story Mode will also be available at retail on October 27th as a season pass disc, which will automatically download new episodes as they roll out. Minecraft: Story Mode will also be coming to Wii U and PlayStation Vita, but there’s no set release date for either platform.
