Telltale Games will launch Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 on July 11 [Update: now available]
Original (6/7): The sandbox world of Minecraft is getting expanded once again by Telltale Games. The developer made the surprise reveal today that it will release the first chapter, “Hero in Residence”, of the previously unannounced Minecraft: Story Mode Season 2 on July 11 for Android and other platforms.
Telltale released the first chapter of Minecraft: Story Mode Season One in October 2015, in collaboration with Minecraft’s main developer Mojang. The idea behind the project was to bring real characters and a narrative to the popular blocky gaming world. The first season was originally supposed to last just five episodes, but in 2016 Telltale added three extra chapters for the game.
Season 2 of Minecraft: Story Mode will continue to follow Jesse, the main builder character of Season One. The second season will begin with Jesse getting his hand trapped inside a gauntlet during what was supposed to be a simple treasure hunt, and that will cause him to head out on a new quest for himself and his group of friends in the Minecraft world. If you have already played through Season One, Season Two will begin based on your various decisions in those previous chapters. Hollywood actors like Patton Oswalt, Ashley Johnson and Scott Porter, all of which voiced characters in Season One. will also return for Season Two.
Telltale Games recently released the fifth and final chapter of The Walking Dead: A New Frontier, and this week it launched the second of five planned episodes for its current Marvel Comics-based game series Guardians of the Galaxy.
