Minecraft is known for its huge success in the gaming industry. Itâs brought adults and children together in gaming, without having to pretend the controller was plugged in. Some of the gameâs popularity comes from the free updates to all compatible systems. Well developer Mojang saw this trend and announced that a Story Mode was to be developed at their Minecon event earlier this year. The stand-alone game which comes out on PC and Xbox One on the 13th October will be a 5 part episodic series. Although the episodes can be purchased separately, a season pass of all five episodes will be released on October 27th.

The female and male voiceovers are Catherine Taber and Patton Oswalt. The game follows a group of friends as they try to save the world, you know typical end of the world stuff. The group of friends are known as The Order and are the best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect.
