Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 3 Release Date

What is the Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 3 release date? Telltale Games has promised that on average with their episodic games you can expect a new downloadable episode every 5 to 8 weeks. Note that as a big surprise Episode 2 only took 2 weeks to arrive, but that was planned to coincide with the retail disc release of the game. As such, Episode 3 (titled “The Last Place You Look”) is expected to arrive anywhere from December 1, 2015 (if we’re lucky) to December 22, 2015 (if we’re unlucky). Update: Telltale has confirmed Episode 3 will arrive in November, leaving only the last week of November on the 24th as the early launch date for ALL platforms!

Check out the Episode 1 ending that will lead into Episode 3 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.”
