Blocky pixel game on a cinema screen? Not sure if want.
Telltale Games has got a pretty busy October in store, and it all kicks off with the world premiere of their latest title, Minecraft: Story Mode on Oct. 12. The game itself launches a day later on Oct. 13, but before the public gets to play Telltale and Mojang are hosting a special event together in Hollywood. The pair of developers are inviting fans out to the ArcLight Cinerama Dome that evening to take part in the “World’s Largest Let’s Play”.
Much like their Crowd Play event of Tales from the Borderlands Episode 4 at PAX Prime, the crowd will shout out which decisions they want made as the entire first episode, ‘The Order of the Stone’, is played through on the big screen in front of them. Those interested in attending should flick an e-mail to minecraftpremiere[at]telltalegames[dot]com. The tickets are free, but on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you wait too long you may miss out.
Speaking of ‘The Order of the Stone’, Telltale has also released a new trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode’s inaugural episode, which gives a closer look at the actual heroes of the world – not the main protagonists of the game like Jesse and his/her friends. The trailer, much like the full game, is narrated by veteran voice actor Billy West.
Minecraft: Story Mode, Episode 1 launches digitally for PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on Oct. 13. Additionally, on Oct. 27 you can purchase a physical disc copy of the game for each of those platforms, which holds the first episode on-disc and includes a season pass code to download the remaining episodes as they become available. Android, iOS, and Wii U ports will release later on.
Telltale also re-confirmed that they will be dropping some big announcements regarding Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones following the release of Minecraft: Story Mode, so look forward to that in the coming weeks.
