If you’re not familiar with Story Mode, it’s a sort of Choose Your Own Adventure set in the Minecraft universe, full of high drama, plucky underdogs, legendary heroes, dastardly villains, incredible peril and perky pigs. Logically enough, Season 2 follows on from Season 1, with players once again filling Jesse’s cuboid shoes, and with a host of familiar faces in tow - but new players should be able to jump right on board!

Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Two was an episodic point-and-click narrative-driven graphic adventure video game which is the sequel to Minecraft: Story Mode, released in July 2017 across multiple platforms, with a Nintendo Switch release on November 6, 2018.[10] The game was developed by Mojang Studios, the developer of Minecraft, in collaboration with Telltale Games. Music for the game was composed by Anadel, an atmospheric folk band based in California. The game follows the episodic format that Telltale has used for its previous titles, where player choices and actions have significant effects on later story elements.

On May 31, 2019, it was announced that Minecraft: Story Mode - Season Two would no longer be supported following the closure of Telltale Games. The servers for Story Mode - Season Two were discontinued on June 25, 2019, meaning that the episodes are no longer downloadable.[17] Despite being discontinued, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are playable on the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 respectively via backward compatibility.[18][19]


Minecraft: Story Mode is an episodic point-and-click narrative-driven graphic adventure video game similar to Telltale's previous titles such as Tales from the Borderlands. The player is able to collect items, solve puzzles, and talk to non-player characters though conversation trees to learn about the story and determine what to do next. Like other Telltale Games, decisions that the player makes have an impact on story elements in future episodes.[20] However, unlike Telltale's previous games that carry more mature or emotional overtones including the death of major characters, Story Mode is known as a family-friendly title, so the decisions are still pivotal and emotional but do not involve mature imagery or themes.[20] Elements of crafting and building, central to Minecraft, are included in the gameplay, following a similar approach.[20] The game features combat and other action sequences, carried out through both quick time events similar to Telltale's other episodic games, and more arcade-like controls, such as steering around debris on a road.[21][22] The game also mixes new characters with original themes to make an entirely original Minecraft experience.


Now that Jesse and the gang have vanquished the Wither Storm, saved the world, and become totally super famous heroes, life has gotten a bit more...complicated. With more responsibilities and less time for adventure, old friendships have started to fade -- at least until Jesse’s hand gets stuck in a creepy gauntlet that belongs to an ancient underwater temple. Together with old pals and new comrades alike, Jesse embarks on a brand new journey filled with tough choices, good times, and at least one temperamental llama.[23]
