Minecraft Story Mode Wraps Up In 2016, But Your Next Episode Lands This Month

by Mike Futter on Dec 09, 2015 at 06:19 AM

Telltale has been delivering Minecraft Story Mode episodes on one of its quickest paces yet. We’ve been getting new installments every month, and that isn’t going to stop.

The fourth episode, “A Block and a Hard Place,” will be along this month. A specific release date hasn’t yet been announced. 

The final episode, which seems to be called "Order Up!" will arrive in early 2016. Our fingers are crossed that ends up being January.

Notably, Telltale says that the episode out this month will wrap up one story. This leaves us curious about how the experience will be rounded out in 2016's finale.

Note: This story originally had the incorrect title for Episode 4. That has been fixed. Our apologies for the error.


Our Take
I was skeptical about how Minecraft would work in the Telltale framework. I’m a fan of the studio, but this project flexes impressive creative muscles reinvigorating my love for the format.
