Minecraft: the first episode of Story Mode is now free on Windows 10 and Xbox One

Minecraft has always been an adventure Your way, and the gradual progression you make from a rookie craftsman to a seemingly invincible ore wizard. Minecraft: Story Mode takes you on a journey starring a hero named Jesse and his friends, through a Minecraft world full of adventure, peril, and most importantly, good times – and now its first episode is free.

In Minecraft: Story Mode, you’ll traverse the Overworld, cross the Nether, and even find yourself in The End. You and your friends admire the slayers of the Ender Dragon, the Order of the Stone. When the opportunity to meet a member of the Order at Endercon arises, something goes horribly wrong, and Jesse and his friends are on a quest to find the Order and save the world.

This episodic game from Telltale is one of their many accomplishments, with other hit games such as The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead already taking pride of place in many people’s game collection.

With Minecraft: Story Mode Season One completed, Telltale is now offering the first episode – The Order of Stone, for free. But wait, there’s more!

The prices of the Season Pass, Adventure Pass, Season Pass Deluxe, and Complete Adventure Pass have also been reduced to reflect the first episode being free. The Minecraft: Story Mode Complete Adventure detail disc has also been redesigned accordingly.
