Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 out on March 29, three more episodes coming in 2016

Telltale Games released the first four chapters of Minecraft: Story Mode in rapid succession during the fall of 2015. Now, the developer has announced that the promised fifth chapter in the episodic game, based on the hit Minecraft sandbox game franchise, will finally be released on March 29 for the PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and many more platforms.

Telltale says the fifth epsiode is titled "Order Up!":

On a tip from Ivor, Jesse and friends head to an abandoned temple holding mysterious treasures. Ambushed by former Ocelot Aiden and his crew, our heroes find themselves in an entirely new world: Sky City! As they explore, the Order finds that resources are at a premium, and nothing but 'The Void' exists below the known world. When Aiden convinces Sky City's ruler that the New Order of the Stone are up to no good, you'll need to make some tough choices to clear your name, and keep Aiden from destroying an innocent world.

Telltale also made a surprise announcement that three more episodes will be released for Minecraft: Story Mode later in 2016. Details on these extra chapters are unknown, but they will be considered add-ons to the current game, which means users will have to own at least the first episode to purchase these three extra parts.

  • If we bought the entire game including all episodes, will these new episodes be included or will we need to pay for these?
  • If you bought the entire game from the beginning (season pass) then all episodes will be free for you the moment they come out.
  • Awesome, exactly what I was hoping to hear.
  • Does this also go for the physical copies too.
  • Physical copies for Telltale games usually come out when all episodes are released. If they come out earlier, then I'm certain they came with a season pass which means you'll also get the other episodes.
  • If you bought the season pass, then you get Episodes 1-5. Episodes 6-8 require an additional purchase.
  • Wait, so they are releasing more episodes? In the same season? With another pass?
  • Many more platforms as in Windows 10 Mobile?
  • In bigger Telltale news, they're doing S3 of TWD: I wonder what the 'unexpected approach' will be for tying the seasons together...
  • Nice. This game is fun for parents and kids (If you like Minecraft)
