Telltale isn’t slowing down with its Minecraft: Story Mode releases. The developer has confirmed that the fourth episode is on the way, and it will be landing in gamers’ laps in time for Christmas.
Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 3 “The Last Place You Look” just launched prior to Thanksgiving on November 24th. Telltale is continuing the holiday trend and announced that Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 “A Block and a Hard Place” will be out just prior to Christmas as its planned for release on December 22nd. Here’s Episode 4’s plot summary:
“In Episode Four, with the fearsome Wither Storm more dangerous than ever, Jesse, Reuben, and the crew discover there is one thing that can destroy the command block at the heart of the monster – but they’ll need to brave the perils of the Farlands to find it. As uneasy allies and ailing friends threaten to tear the group apart, can they defeat the Wither Storm in their final battle? And what sacrifices must be made to succeed? Find out in Episode Four’s epic ‘Wither Storm Finale’ that will turn the page on one chapter, before adventures may begin anew…”
Telltale then teases us a bit, and mentions that “if Episode Four will end the story of the Wither Storm, what does that mean for Episode Five? We wouldn’t dare spoil that for you here, but you can expect to have a better idea of what’s to come for the Order of the Stone after playing Episode Four and when the mysterious fifth episode launches in early 2016.”
“A Block and a Hard Place”, Episode 4 of Minecraft: Story Mode hits PC, Mac, iOS, Android, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One on December 22nd. The series is still planned for Wii U, we just have no idea when.
