Today Telltale Games sent out the first gameplay trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode, their new episodic adventure based on Mojang's building game. The trailer explains the story and also reveals some of the voice cast.
Minecraft: Story Mode follows an unlikely group of heroes that have to save their cubed world from ruin. Here's the official story description from Telltale:
Players will control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt. Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order is the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect. While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong... something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.
In addition to Oswalt, Telltale Games also announced these members of the voice cast:
Odds are you've encountered the rest of the voice cast as well. Martha Plimpton was one of the leads on show Raising Hope and played Stef in The Goonies. Billy West voiced Fry, Dr. Zoidberg and Professor Farnsworth in Futurama. Brian Posehn, meanwhile, is a stand-up comedian who almost helped write Destiny.
Minecraft: Story Mode is a five-episode adventure that takes players to notable locations in Minecraft such as the End and the Nether. As usual for Telltale Games, your decisions throughout the game will have an impact on the story.
Telltale will release Story Mode later this year on PC, Mac, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS, and Android.
