Minecraft: Story Mode to Feature Crafting, Selectable Player Character
The blocky, sandbox adventures of Minecraft: Story Mode will feature your own protagonist that you selected.
Telltale Games has announced that Minecraft: Story Mode will be its first adventure game that lets you choose your player character and decide what they look like. While your character will be named Jesse, there is going to be a variety of options for what the character looks like. Jesse could be male or female depending on your choosing, and you get to also decide what the main character looks like. The male version of Jesse will be voiced by Patton Oswalt, while the female version will be portrayed by Catherine Taber. Other noteworthy voice actors in Story Mode include Brian Posehn, Ashley Johnson, Scott Porter, Martha Plimpton, Dave Fennoy, Corey Feldman, Paul Reubens, Billy West and more.
We've learned that Story Mode will feature crafting tables that will allow you to create new items based on the ingredients you find while playing. Those lucky enough to have tried the game at PAX Prime claim the inventory system will be familiar to those who play Minecraft itself, so don't forget, two iron ingots and a stick will get you an iron sword!
The first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode is expected to launch this fall for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, PC, Wii U, iOS and Android.
