At Minecon 2015 today in London, Telltale Games offered the first look at Minecraft: Story Mode, an episodic game set in the world of Minecraft and told in the style of Telltale hits like The Walking Dead or Tales From The Borderlands.
The game centers on protagonist Jesse, voiced by Patton Oswalt, and his group of friends. They're off to find the legendary Order of the Stone, a group comprising members who are the greatest at four jobs: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Architect and Griefer. This bunch once slew an Ender Dragon, and they're needed again.
This trailer is a completely different way to look at Minecraft but it doesn't feature (thankfully) some phony explanation for why everyone has Minecraft's iconic low-res look. It's Minecraft, which should be explanation enough.
Minecraft: Story Mode is coming later this year for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Mac, Xbox 360, Xbox One, iOS and Android.
