Telltale has confirmed that the new episode in their episodic story oriented take on Minecraft will be launching later this month, as promised, after all. Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4: A Block and a Hard Place will release on PC, Mac, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, iOS and Android on December 22Telltale has confirmed. This episode concludes one very important story as well, just as Telltale had teased beforehand- specifically, the story of the Wither Storm ends with this installment.
“In Episode Four, with the fearsome Wither Storm more dangerous than ever, Jesse, Reuben, and the crew discover there is one thing that can destroy the command block at the heart of the monster – but they’ll need to brave the perils of the Farlands to find it,” Telltale’s official description reads.
“As uneasy allies and ailing friends threaten to tear the group apart, can they defeat the Wither Storm in their final battle? And what sacrifices must be made to succeed? Find out in Episode Four’s epic ‘Wither Storm Finale’ that will turn the page on one chapter, before adventures may begin anew…”
The final episode for the series is due out some time in January 2016. Given how well Telltale have stuck to their timetable with Minecraft Story Mode, I wouldn’t doubt that they’ll hit this release date too.
