Many might not have known this, but Microsoft released Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 5 to the Xbox Store last month to mixed reviews, with a Windows 10 version nowhere in sight. That’s no longer the case: it is now available in the Windows Store for the cool price of $4.99.
While the first game in the series did not manage to grab the hearts and minds of gamers around the world, it did enough for Microsoft and TellTale Games to continue churning out episodes. Episode 5 is all about being on an adventure to locate members of the Order of the Stone, and group said to be capable of saving the world from utter destruction.
Like all games from TellTale, gamers should be careful of the decisions they make since they affect the outcome of the game. Personally, I have only played a single game from TellTale: The Wolf Among Us, a spectacular game from start to finish. If Episode 5 of Minecraft: Story Mode is the same, then it should grab itself some new fans down the line.
Here’s how Microsoft describes the new game:
You’re on an adventure across the Overworld to find the new Order of the Stone, which will save your world. On a tip from Ivor, Jesse gets his pals together, and you all head to an abandoned temple holding mysterious treasures. But things are never so simple here, and an ambush by former Ocelot Aiden and his crew along the way sends you to an entirely new world, Sky City. Your exploration leads to key discoveries about this new environment and its rulers, leading to tough choices. In the world of “Minecraft,” it’s what you do with your blocks that makes the difference – so get building!
