Telltale announces Minecraft Collaboration
In a surprise announcement, Telltale games has joined forces with Mojang to create Minecraft: Story Mode.
Coming via a retro-styled game Info Quest II, where you answer a set of questions all themed around the announcement, only to be blown up at the end.
In the press release, Telltale said : “Minecraft: Story Mode will be an all-new narrative-driven game series developed by Telltale in collaboration with Mojang. Set in the world of Minecraft, the series will feature an original story, driven by player choice. It will not be an add-on for Minecraft, but rather a separate stand-alone product that will premiere in 2015 on consoles, computers and mobile devices.
Telltale’s game series will mix new characters with familiar themes, in an entirely original Minecraft experience, inspired by the Minecraft community and the game that continues to inspire a generation.”
Following in the vein of other Telltale games such as The Walking Dead series and the recently released Game of Thrones game, Minecraft: Story Mode will be in episodic format, and
will feature various characters from the Minecraft universe, but will not have Steve as the playable character.
Collaborating with Mojang and the minecraft community, they aim to make the game as “Minecrafty” as possible.
The game will release some point in 2015 on Xbox consoles, Playstation consoles, PC, Mac, iOs and Android devices.
