Block out your schedule, Minecraft: Story Mode begins October 13

Episode one of Minecraft: Story Mode will go live on October 13, and you'd better start preparing for all the difficult decisions now. You wouldn't want to get a mental block when your friends' lives are on the line (ok, ok I'll stop).

Minecraft: Story Mode will hit Telltale's usual diaspora of systems: PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One will all get Episode 1: The Order of the Stone on October 13. The rollout to iOS and Android devices will start on October 15 and Wii U and PlayStation Vita will also get their own versions later on.

Usually Telltale Games are only available in retail stores after the season concludes, but this time around a "Season Pass Disc" will ship on October 27 in North America and October 30 in Europe. It comes with the first episode pre-installed and with pre-paid downloads for the other four as the season progresses.

Minecraft: Story Mode will also be the first Telltale adventure game to let you pick your character's gender - hence the protagonist's helpfully gender neutral name, Jesse.

I got a BA in journalism from Central Michigan University - though the best education I received there was from CM Life, its student-run newspaper. Long before that, I started pursuing my degree in video games by bugging my older brother to let me play Zelda on the Super Nintendo. I've previously been a news intern for GameSpot, a news writer for CVG, and now I'm a staff writer here at GamesRadar.
