Telltale Games and Microsoft are currently offering the first 5 episodes for Minecraft: Story Mode completely free. This offer is available on the Windows Store, and those interested can acquire their free copy by visiting its store page.
As said, this offer includes the first five episodes. In order to get access to Episodes 6-8, players will have to purchase the Adventure Pass.
In this five part episodic series, players will embark on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End, and beyond. While at EnderCon in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior, players will discover that something is wrong. As such, players must set out on a quest to find The Order of the Stone if they are to save their world from oblivion.
Do note that those with older Windows operating systems may not be able to acquire their free copies. While everything works perfectly fine on Windows 10, users with Windows 8.1 reported that they were unable to get it.
Unfortunately this offer is exclusive to the Windows Store. As such, those who boycott Microsoft’s service won’t be able to get it. Moreover, this offer will, somehow, tempt you to get the Adventure Pass as the game will feel incomplete without it.
But anyway, this is your chance to get a taste of Minecraft’s story mode, so go ahead and download it. It’s free stuff after all!
