Minecraft: Story Mode Announced, Mojang Partners with Telltale Games

By Published December 18, 2014 at 12:00 am

In a somewhat unexpected turn for the firmly established Minecraft franchise, a new “Story Mode” episodic game is being developed by Telltale Games in collaboration with Mojang.

Story Mode will feature a narrative-driven approach to gameplay, likely utilizing Telltale Games' famous dialogue wheel showcased in The Wolf Among Us & Tales from the Borderlands. Mojang promises that the collaborative project will feel “as Minecrafty as possible,” noting that they're providing input during design and development.

Mojang indicates that Story Mode won't feature an official backstory for Minecraft “Steve,” further emphasizing that Story Mode won't seek to explain the existence of the Minecraft world in detail.

Story Mode, like other Telltale titles, will be released in episodic fashion over a period of “seasons.” The first episode is slated for a 2015 launch on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.

Steve started GamersNexus back when it was just a cool name, and now it's grown into an expansive website with an overwhelming amount of features. He recalls his first difficult decision with GN's direction: "I didn't know whether or not I wanted 'Gamers' to have a possessive apostrophe -- I mean, grammatically it should, but I didn't like it in the name. It was ugly. I also had people who were typing apostrophes into the address bar - sigh. It made sense to just leave it as 'Gamers.'"

First world problems, Steve. First world problems.
