Telltale Games has announced that they will be launching Episode 6 in their Minecraft: Story Mode series next week called A Portal to Mystery. Originally planned as a 5-episode series, Telltale Games announced that they would be expanding the series with an additional three episodes once the main storyline is completed, which is what happened in episode 5.
The additional three episodes won’t technically be expanding on the original storyline but will instead be new adventures for the crew within the game to experience. These new episodes do continue on with where the characters left off in the previous episode however.
The group will be 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. – Episode 6: A Portal to Mystery
These new episodes will also have special guest appearances of people from the Minecraft community taking on a role of their own characters here and there from their YouTube videos. For examples, players will be introduced to, and interact with, Joseph Garrett as Stampy Cat, Stacy Hinojosa as Stacy Plays, Dan Middleton as DanTDM (The Diamond Minecart), Lizzie Dwyer as LDShadowLady, and Jordan Maron as CaptainSparklez.

Episode 6 will also be available individually for $4.99 USD if you don’t want to do the pass.
