Telltale Games have announced that Episode 6 of Minecraft: Story Mode will release next week on June 7th. The episode, titled A Portal to Mystery, is the first of 3 extra episodes in addition to the season one finale. A Portal to Mystery finds hero Jesse and his friends in a zombie-infested world, trapped in a mansion with six real-life Minecraft celebrities. Check out the trailer below.
In-game roles will be played by notable community members Stampy Cat (Joseph Garrett), Stacy Plays (Stacy Hinojosa), DanTDM (Dan Middleton), LDShadowLady (Lizzie Dwyer), and CaptainSparklez (Jordan Maron). This is an interesting addition to Minecraft: Story Mode and video games in general. It shows just how much influence streamers and YouTube personalities have on modern games. For them to be featured in a popular video game is a significant recognition of their importance.
Episodes 6, 7, and 8 will be available to players who have previously purchased Episode 1 and any other subsequent episodes of Minecraft: Story Mode. Those players can purchase the Adventure Pass (which includes all three) for $14.99 or single episodes for $4.99.
