Forget about blocks and castles. Minecraft players are going to need to craft an escape plan later this month.
Telltale Games revealed today that the seventh episode for Minecraft: Story Mode releases on July 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Mac, and mobile. The new episode is Access Denied. Minecraft is one of the best-selling games of all time, moving more than 106 million copies. While the original game focuses on open-world discovery and building, Story Mode injects Telltale’s classic sense of narrative and player choice into the series.
“Continuing their portal journey in search of home, Jesse and crew land in a world entirely controlled by PAMA – a sinister ‘thinking machine’ determined to command everyone and everything in pursuit of optimal usefulness and efficiency,” Telltale notes on its YouTube page. “Forced on the run to avoid capture and assimilation, you’ll need to work with a new ally to defeat the corrupted computer and free the population it has enslaved.”
Telltale has worked with other notable franchises like The Walking Dead, Borderlands, Back to the Future, and Game of Thrones. It’s also currently working on a series based on Batman.
The first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode released on October 13. Most Telltale series run for five episodes, so Minecraft: Story Mode is enjoying a pretty long run.
