Minecraft Story Mode Enters Season 2 This July

Telltale digs deep, builds a new story, and… I'm all out of Minecraft puns.

Telltale Games has announced Minecraft: Story Mode - Season 2 ahead of E3 2017. The five-episode series reunites players with Minecraft: Story Mode hero Jesse in a new season developed in collaboration with Mojang and members of the Minecraft community. Season 2 will premiere on July 11, 2017 with Episode 1: Hero in Residence for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android. (Sorry, folks, no Nintendo Switch version.)

Telltale's synopsis for Season 2's tale:

Now that Jesse and the gang have vanquished the Wither Storm, saved the world, and become totally super famous heroes, life has gotten a bit more...complicated. With more responsibilities and less time for adventure, old friendships have started to fade -- at least until Jesse's hand gets stuck in a creepy gauntlet that belongs to an ancient underwater temple. Together with old pals and new comrades alike, Jesse embarks on a brand new journey filled with tough choices, good times, and at least one temperamental llama.

Story choices from the first season will carry forward in Season 2, but Telltale stresses the season will be accessible to new players as well. Telltale's Crowd Play feature makes its way into the second season, allowing others to help you decide which choices you make in your game.

Minecraft: Story Mode - Season 2 features the returning voices of Patton Oswalt, Catherine Taber, Ashley Johnson, and Scott Porter. Like Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 6, the game will also feature cameos from Minecraft-playing Youtubers, like Stampy Cat and Stacy Plays.

The above date covers the download release of the game. The retail disc version is coming this Fall, which means the release cadence for episodes will likely be just as fast as the first season.
