After the end of each Minecraft: Story Mode adventure game episode, Telltale Games is nice enough to include a teaser trailer for the next episode. In this case the on October 13th, 2015 released Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 1 Walkthrough included a Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 2 trailer that’s shown at the top of this page.

Check out the Episode 1 ending that will lead into Episode 2 in this video:

Season 1 Description: “Minecraft: Story Mode is like a playable television show based on your favorite game, where YOU are the star, and your choices and actions decide how the story is told.

You are Jesse, and you and your friends are thrown into an awe-inspiring adventure to save the world. While visiting EnderCon, your gang stumbles on something dreadful. Terror is unleashed, and your only hope is to track down the “Order of the Stone”, a fabled group of adventurers who slew the legendary Ender Dragon. But where are they? In a race against time, you will travel across the over-world, through the Nether, to The End, and beyond.”

October 27 Update: Telltale dropped a bomb on us by releasing Episode 2 alongside the retail disc release TODAY in America & Europe on all platforms!

Here’s the Episode 2 launch trailer:

Episode 2 story description:

“In the second chapter of our story, time is running out for our intrepid heroes. The Wither Storm looms ever closer, consuming everything in its wake. Depending on their decisions, Jesse and friends are off to explore either kingdoms of chaos or wondrous Redstone marvels in search of Magnus or Ellegaard, the remaining known members of The Order of the Stone. Can these legendary figures help our heroes stop the impending threat?

Your path in ‘Assembly Required’ will differ greatly depending on your choices made in ‘The Order of the Stone’, so more than one playthrough is definitely recommended after your season concludes! Did you choose to save Gabriel or Petra amid the Wither Storm? Did you choose to seek the help of Magnus the Griefer or Ellegaard the Redstone Engineer? This is one of our most divergent episodes yet depending on the paths you’ve chosen – and many players will have completely different experiences depending on where they’ve decided to go!”

More updates will be added in this spot later on.

What do you think will happen on the next episode of Minecraft: Story Mode?
