Telltale Games is getting closer to releasing its all-new take on the Minecraft universe. The developer has released its first trailer for the game, as well as some of the very first details revealing what the game will be like. The trailer was released at Minecon 2015 today in London, and it gives us a taste of how Telltale has worked together with Mojang to explore Minecraft from a new perspective.

"The best at what they do."

Like other games from the developer (The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones) it will be a narrative driven game — more like a point-and-click title than a traditional action game. It will also be released, as with other Telltale games, in episodes that will form the first season of the game.

Players will control a guy named Jesse. As the developers explain in a blog post, "Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon," the famous boss in the original game. The group is made up of a Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect, all of which, naturally, "are the best at what they do." According to the blog post, "While at EnderCon, Jesse and his friends discover that something is wrong... something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and they must set out on a journey to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion."

Minecraft: Story Mode is coming out later this year for just about every platform under the sun (other than Nintendo).
