New Minecraft Story Mode Trailer, Hollywood Premiere Announced

Minecraft Story Mode, the new Minecraft spinoff created by Telltale Games, will be for sale in less than two weeks. Well…one-fifth of it will be for sale. If you’ve never played a Telltale game before, they usually divide their releases into chapters and release them one chunk at a time.

How will this work with a retail release? They’ll sell you the first chapter on disc and the other four chapters will download for free as they come out. If you’re the type who prefers all their data be solid, you can just wait for the Game Of The Year Deluxe Edition Reissue that will inevitably come out.

To give you all the details, Telltale has provided us with this press release. They’re booting out this game in style with a gigantic premiere party in Hollywood. The ArcLight Cinerama Dome will play host to what Telltale is calling the “World’s Biggest Let’s Play” as the game is played on the big screen capacity audience directs the players what to do. Should be fun, if you can get to it.
