The first four episodes of Minecraft: Story Mode came out in quick succession, giving players a tightly crafted tale before Christmas. But with one episode remaining, developer Telltale suddenly went quiet about when its adventure would be wrapping up. Today, we have a date -- and it's not quite what we were expecting. Episode five will launch on March 29th, followed by a further three episodes later this year. These are being described as "additional escapades" and won't form part of the season pass, so you'll need to pay a little extra if you want the complete story.

"We're not going into detail about the content of those yet, but we can confirm that they'll be great, and maybe come with a slightly different flavour to the previous season," Mojang's Owen Hill explained in a blog post. If you're up to date with Minecraft: Story Mode, you'll know why the team might be interested in developing further episodes -- the world undergoes a significant shift at the end of episode four, setting up a whole new batch of adventures for Jesse and the Order of the Stone.
