The game will be called Minecraft: Storymode and will be an episodic game much like Telltale’s The Walking Dead or Tales from the Borderlands.
To make this game Telltale will be collaborating with Mojang to develop an experience original to Minecraft, inspired by the community.
There will be new characters mixed with familiar themes in the Minecraft universe, featuring an original story driven by player choice. This will be an independent game and will stand alone from Minecraft.
Minecraft: Story Mode will come to consoles, PC and mobile devices in 2015. No official date has been set.
