Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 Release Date

What is the Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 release date? On average Telltale Games has released the Minecraft episodes in a much more rapid fashion than their other episodic games, so you can expect a new downloadable episode every 2 to 4 weeks. Note that as a big surprise Episode 2 only took 2 weeks to arrive, because it was planned to coincide with the retail disc release of the game. As such, Episode 4 (titled “A Block and a Hard Place”) will arrive on December 22, 2015.
