Telltale Games just released the first episode in its new Game of Thrones series, and it’s following up that game with a surprising new announcement: a narrative-driven game based on Minecraft. Called Minecraft: Story Mode, the game will be an episodic series that will debut at some point next year. “Set in the world of Minecraft, the series will feature an original story, driven by player choice,” the studio explains. “It will not be an add-on for Minecraft, but rather a separate stand-alone product.”
” It will be a awesome game for sure “
The Telltale Blog post goes into greater detail:
“Minecraft: Story Mode will be an all-new narrative-driven game series developed by Telltale in collaboration with Mojang. Set in the world of Minecraft, the series will feature an original story, driven by player choice,” Telltale stated. “It will not be an add-on for Minecraft, but rather a separate stand-alone product that will premiere in 2015 on consoles, computers and mobile devices.”
Mojang was purchased by Microsoft for $2.5 billion in September of this year, but it doesn’t look like that acquisition will slow down multiplatform development of this upcoming title. The game is being made with Telltale and “members of the community,” according to Telltale, in order to be as “Minecrafty” as possible, although we don’t quite know what that means yet.
