If you haven’t heard already, Telltale Games (Wolf Among Us, The Walking Dead, etc) is developing a new five-part series, with the first episode expected to come this October 13th. By partnering with Mojang, this “new” world will be based in, Minecraft…but this time, it has a story to tell.
In ‘Minecraft: Story Mode‘, playing as either a male or female hero named ‘Jesse’ (Patton Oswalt/Catherine Taber), you’ll embark on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End, and beyond. You and your friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect; slayers of the Ender Dragon. While at EnderCon in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior, Jesse’s friends discover that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and you must set out on a quest to find The Order of the Stone if you are to save your world from oblivion.
The cast this season will also feature Axel (Brian Posehn), Petra (Ashley Johnson), Lucas (Scott Porter), Olivia (Martha Plimpton), and Ivor (Paul Reubens). Also announced today, in the role of the four ‘Order of the Stone’ members, Gabriel the Warrior (Dave Fennoy), Magnus the Griefer (Corey Feldman), Ellegaard the Redstone Engineer (Grey Griffin), and Soren the Architect (John Hodgman). Also playing the part as the narrator will be Billy West.
