Telltale Games’ new episodic game series based on the Minecraft universe is finally getting a release next month. Minecraft: Story Mode will launch digitally on October 13, 2015 and in retail on October 27, 2015. The first episode, entitled “The Order of the Stone”, will kick off the series and bring the new adventure to every platform that you can think off: PC, PS3, Vita, PS4, 360, Xbox One, Wii U, and mobile devices.

The digital chapters, obviously, will be released over time. The retail disc however, will contain the initial chapter on the disc and then allow players to download the additional chapters for no additional charge as they are released. I am curious to see how this plays out since the world of Minecraft relies so heavily on the building and exploring aspect. How much of that charm will remain when the focus is shifted to a narrative experience? I guess we will find out next month…
