Watch the trailer for the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode

Mojang and Telltale Games embark on their first story-driven foray into the world of Minecraft this month, and a new trailer is here to give a sneak peek. Minecraft: Story Mode's first episode, "The Order of the Stone," will take players on a mythical quest to save the world from destruction — only this epic quest looks considerably blockier than journeys gamers have played through before.

The five-part Story Mode aims to capture the magic of such movies as The Goonies and Ghostbusters, so it immediately promises to be both funny and thrilling. But no one's being left out of the fun; in a laudable move on TellTale's part, Patton Oswalt and Star Wars: The Clone Wars voice actress Catherine Taber each voice a core character depending on what gender players choose. "The Order of the Stone" will launch digitally on October 153h for PC, Xbox One, 360, PS3, and PS4, with a version for iOS and Android coming two days later. A physical version with a season pass for all four followup episodes will hit stores on October 27th, while a mobile version for PS Vita and Wii U will debut at a later date.
