Telltale's 'Minecraft' adventure game arrives on October 13


Minecraft, but as a point-and-click adventure game? When Telltale's Story Mode title was first announced, it left many of us scratching our heads. Minecraft is hardly known for its rich narrative, and its open-ended gameplay couldn't be further from the tightly woven, decision-driven moments found in most Telltale games. However, since then we've had a steady clip of trailers and screenshots that give us an idea of how it'll all shake out -- and now we've got a release date too. Minecraft: Story Mode launches on October 13th with the first episode, "The Order of the Stone." It'll be available on PC, Mac, PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 -- iOS and Android will join them on October 15th, followed by Wii U and PS Vita sometime in the future. Retail versions will be dropping on October 27th -- Telltale is calling it a "Season Pass Disc," which means you'll get instant access to the first episode and download codes/patches for the latter four episodes that wrap up the series.
