Telltale has dated both the physical and retail releases of Minecraft: Story Mode.
MCV had been told that the game would be released both digitally and on disc at the same time. This doesn’t appear to be the case, however.
The first episode of the episodic series will arrive on PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on October 13th. The physical release, however, will then follow on October 30th – which at least ties in with the date previously announced by Amazon.
The retail version, as per previous stories, will include the first episode on the disc and then Season Pass access to the remaining episodes via download.
The iOS and Android versions will be released on October 15th. There is not yet a date for the Vita or Wii U releases.
"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," Telltale’s CEO and co-founder Kevin Bruner said.
"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."
Mojang’s brand director Lydia Winters added: "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.
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?"
