Mojang has announced Minecraft: Story Mode, a new story-based single-player mode for the super-popular game, which will be made by the developer of The Walking Dead game, Telltale Games. Minecraft: Story Mode will launch next year on "Xbox consoles, PlayStation consoles, PC, Mac, iOS and Android-based devices."
On the official Mojang blog, they write "Minecraft: Story Mode will be released episodically, just like The Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead or the recent Tales from the Borderlands, which is another developer-collaboration series between Telltale Games and Gearbox Software. We're not intending on creating an 'official' story for Steve, or explaining the world of Minecraft in detail. It will be a cool game."
The folks over at Telltale provide even more details, teasing "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." The developer continues "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."
