After much waiting Telltale Games has finally revealed when the first episode of their upcoming Minecraft: Story Mode game will be released. There’s still likely to be a bit of a wait though as Episode 1 is not slated for release until mid-October 2015. Still, it could be a considerably longer wait.

For those of you not familiar with Minecraft: Story Mode, this is Telltale Games’ newest series they have been working on this year. Such as the company’s past and currently running series, Minecraft: Story Mode will an episodic adventure, with five episodes currently planned. Unfortunately, Telltale Games is keeping lots of the juicy details under wraps still until it gets nearer to the game’s release.

However, we do know several details such as the general plot for Minecraft: Story Mode.Players will require charge of Jesse, the story’s main hero. Interestingly enough, Jesse can be either man or woman, the choice is yours. Then you are off on your adventure to save the planet:

Jesse and the group of friends revere the legendary Order from the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. An order would be the very best at the things they’re doing: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends realize that something is wrong… something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on the journey to find The Order from the Stone if they are in order to save their world from oblivion.

Telltale Games did demonstrate that the gameplay feels nearly the same as it might with being in the Minecraft world. One more thing mentioned is the fact that customization and creativity was paid close attention too when creating farmville. Jesse could be customized further besides choosing what sex he/she is going to be. You will find three different looks to choose from when making your Jesse. Unfortunately, anything past that regarding customization was not revealed at this time.
