Minecraft: Story Mode is getting 3 bonus chapters

Episode 5 of Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode, titled as Order Up, will be releasing on March 29th, and just as many community members have speculated, it won't be the final episode in the series.

According to a recent announcement, Telltale is currently working on three extra post-season chapters that will continue on with the story from Episode 5 and release over the coming months.

These new adventures will follow the journey of Jesse and his band of treasure hunters as they explore new and unfamiliar worlds, far beyond their own. Since prior knowledge of the characters and setting will be required, you will need to own at least the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode in order to grab and play chapters 6, 7, and 8.

As for Episode 5: Order Up, here's what Telltale has cooked up for Jesse and his companions:

"In the upcoming Episode 5, on a tip from Ivor, Jesse and friends head to an abandoned temple holding mysterious treasures. Ambushed by former Ocelot Aiden and his crew, our heroes find themselves in an entirely new world: Sky City!

As they explore, the Order finds that resources are at a premium, and nothing but 'The Void' exists below the known world. When Aiden convinces Sky City's ruler that the New Order of the Stone are up to no good, you'll need to make some tough choices to clear your name, and keep Aiden from destroying an innocent world."

There is only one question that remains, will these episodes be a part of the standard Minecraft: Story Mode package, or will they be paid DLC? While its highly likely that they will be released as paid expansions, Telltale hasn't come out and confirmed anything just yet, so there's still a tiny shred of hope out there. When more information comes out I'll make sure to update you.
