Minecraft: Story Mode detailed by Telltale Games

Telltale are making a Minecraft game using their unique story telling skills and we now know the first details.

Coming via the London Minecon expo, Telltale revealed that it'll release the content in five parts, with players controlling a character known as Jesse, voiced by actor Patton Oswalt.

"Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon," explains Telltale. "The Order are the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong... something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion."

Speaking more about the game, Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games said they expect fans to enjoy their take on the world of Minecraft.

"We've worked closely with the amazing team at Mojang to ensure this story is a natural fit for the Minecraft world fans already know and love. As Jesse, players will steer their own path through a tale of adventure and survival; all brought to life by an all-star cast. Through Telltale's choice-based gameplay and a story spanning from the Nether to the Farlands, the End, and beyond, we can't wait for fans to experience this new take on the beloved world of Minecraft."

"The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe," said Owen Hill, chief word officer at Mojang. "They've crafted a story that follows the logic of Minecraft, but still manages to feel original. It's actually pretty funny too. And the pig is adorable. We're super excited about players digging deeper into the world of Minecraft: Story Mode later this year."

Minecraft: Story Mode will be available to download later this year on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and compatible iOS and Android-based devices.

Think i'll give this one a miss - looks tacky and pointless. It has lost the Minecraft charm by going into this style, it's all too 'polished' like the Minecraft pre-rendered videos you see on youtube that certain youtubers have created

My kids adore minecraft all they ever play with their mates so they'll probably want this too. This "story version " is not my cup of tea in the slightest....

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
