If you weren’t already excited about two of the world leaders joining forces to bring a Minecraft experience like no other, then perhaps the confirmation of a release date will ensure the hype gets building.

Minecraft: Story Mode – A Telltale Games Series Episode 1: The Order of the Stone (that’s a hell of a mouthful), will be the first of five episode in the season. It’ll be arriving on Oct 13th 2015 on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3, PS4 and PC before turning up a couple days later on iOS and Android. Wii U and PS Vita dates are yet to be confirmed.

Additionally, a Season Pass disc will retail in North America on Oct 27th and in Europe come Oct 30th 2015, and will include access to the first episode as well as downloadable subsequent episodes when they become available.

In Minecraft: Story Mode, playing as either a male or female hero named ‘Jesse,’ you’ll embark on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End, and beyond. You and your friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect; slayers of the Ender Dragon. While at EnderCon in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior, Jesse’s friends discover that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and you must set out on a quest to find The Order of the Stone if you are to save your world from oblivion.

Featuring Patton Oswalt as male Jesse, Catherine Taber as female Jesse, Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Billy West, and Paul Reubens, the cast list looks to be pretty damn solid, with further details for the season dropping later.

“Developed in partnership with our friends at Mojang, this all-ages adventure series kicks off a thrilling story full of many elements essential to the world of Minecraft, combined with Telltale’s trademark choice-based gameplay,” said Kevin Bruner, CEO and co-founder of Telltale Games. “There are plenty of exciting details we’ve been keeping under wraps, and we’re thrilled that players will soon be starting their own adventure through the Nether to the Farlands and beyond with Jesse and The Order of the Stone.”

“One of the greatest things about this project is that it gives the community a chance to interact with the world of Minecraft in a new and different way. It also marks the beginning of some exciting narrative-form content based on our game,” said Lydia Winters, Brand Director at Mojang. “We worked directly with Telltale on every step of the process. Together we’ve created a blend of the amazing narratives that Telltale creates with all the fun and adventure you know and love from Minecraft. It’s got everything: creepers, crafting, an incredible cast of characters, and even an adorable pig. How awesome does that sound?”

So whether you’re a massive Minecraft fan, or just need another hit of the Telltale magic, you should be keeping an eye out for it when it arrives in October. We will of course, remind you as and when the episodes appear.

An Xbox gamer since 2002, I bought the big black box just to play Oddworld: Munch's Oddysee. I have since loved every second of the 360's life and am now just as obsessed with the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S - mostly with the brilliant indie scene that has come to the fore.
