Telltale Games has released another trailer for the upcoming Episode 6: A Portal to Mystery for their Minecraft: Story Mode series. Unlike the trailer we displayed last week when announcing the release date for this episode, this new trailer shows a bit more of the gameplay that will be arriving with this episode, and less cast interviews.
Update: June 7th, 2016 9:16am PST: Telltale Games has released Episode 6: A Portal to Mystery for Minecraft: Story Mode right on time. You will be able to purchase this episode digitally as part of the new Adventure Pass for $14.99, which includes access to Episodes 7 and 8 as well when they arrive. If you don’t have the season pass, you can grab Episode 6 by itself for $4.99.
For those of you who missed our previous coverage, Minecraft: Story Mode was originally planned to be only 5 episodes long, but then Telltale Games decided to add an additional 3 episodes to the series. These three extra episodes are actually new adventures that the crew from the original five will be undergoing.
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
In addition to new adventures, these three extra episodes will also feature a bunch of new characters that you will run into. The new characters will be special guest appearances of people from the Minecraft community who will be taking on a role of their own characters here and there from their own YouTube series. For example, 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.
You can check out the new trailer below which shows more of the gameplay that you’ll be experiencing in Episode 6 when it arrives. When will that be happening? Well Episode 6 will become available on all platforms tomorrow. When it arrives, we will post an update. You will need to own at least Episode 1 in order to access Episode 6,7 and 8 when they are released.
