Mojang just announced a new episode of Minecraft: Story Mode to come next week. The 6the episode of the series is going to be called “A Portal to Mystery,” and it will arrive on June 7th to PC, Xbox One and Xbox 360.
The new episode will follow events from the previous one, but it will also be the very first Minecraft: Story Mode game developed by Telltale Games to be centered around the original title, developed by Mojang. The company released a new blog post announcing the new episode, and here’s what it says:
“In Episode 6: ‘A Portal to Mystery’, continuing their journey through the portal hallway, Jesse and crew land themselves in another strange new world – one completely overrun by zombies. With a timely invitation to take refuge in a spooky mansion, they find themselves thrown into a thrilling mystery alongside famous members of the Minecraft community. Fresh perils await them in an unfamiliar land, as does the sinister figure known as The Host. What can this pumpkin-headed hostelier have in mind for his new guests? Who are the strangers invited to attend The Host’s mansion party?! Can anyone be trusted?!! Who will survive?!!! Will Owen tell me off for using excessive punctuation?!!!! Who knows?!!!!!
Several special guest stars from the Minecraft community join the cast in this new episode, all playing characters from their own YouTube videos. Players will get to interact with Joseph Garrett as Stampy Cat, Stacy Hinojosa as Stacy Plays, Dan Middleton as DanTDM (The Diamond Minecart), Lizzie as LDShadowLady, and Jordan Maron as CaptainSparklez!”
As you can see, Jesse is still the main character of the story. He and his friends fight zombies in a world behind the portal hallway, but they’re going to have support for some known characters for the first time ever. Namely, some stars of the Minecraft community will play as their own characters, including Joseph Garrett, Stacy Hinojosa, Dan Middleton, Lizzie, and others.
The new episode will be available for the price of $4.99, but also as a part of the new Adventure Pass, which will contain episodes 6, 7, and 8. The Adventure Pass will cost $14.99. Also, keep in mind that you need to have at least episode 1, or the previous Season Pass to be able to purchase episodes 6, 7, and 8.
