During this year’s Minecon, Microsoft revealed the Windows 10 version of Minecraft. In addition, Telltale Games has released the first trailer for Minecraft: Story Mode.
According to Microsoft, Minecraft Windows 10 will not replace the existing Minecraft version, but rather take advantage of the advanced technology and gaming platform provided by this new operating system.
Minecraft Windows 10 will enter its beta phase on July 29th, and existing PC players will receive the Windows 10 version for free.
New players can buy the game for $10 USD for a limited time.
As Microsoft noted, Minecraft Windows 10 will work on all Windows 10 PCs and tablets, and gamers will be able to switch between controller, touch, or mouse and keyboard whenever they want.
Minecraft: Story Mode, on the other hand, is an adventure game, by Telltale Games, set in a Minecraft world. It is a five-part episodic series that will take you to the Nether, the Farlands, the End, and beyond! You will drive how the story flows through the decisions you make: what you say to people (and how you say it), and what you choose to do in moments of thrilling action.
Players will control protagonist Jesse throughout the season, as portrayed by actor Patton Oswalt. Jesse and his group of friends revere the legendary Order of the Stone; four adventurers who slayed an Ender Dragon. The Order is the very best at what they do: Warrior, Redstone Engineer, Griefer, and Architect.
