Hill also announced that three more “post-season” episodes will follow and that all these three episodes are expected to be out this year.

On the company’s official website, Hill said that the episode 5 of Minecraft Story Mode will feature a new world called Sky City. Gamers will see Jesse and company explore the new world, which Owen Hill described in his blog as an “awe-inspiring and an intriguing” place. In the story, Jesse and his buddies will find themselves in abandoned temple, where they meet the ruler that is said to be up to no good.

“Episode 5 will not be the last you see of Jessie and the gang. We can now confirm that three extra episodes will arrive sometime in 2016,” Hill wrote on his blog, via the Australian News Network.

Episode 5, which also called “Order Up!”, will bridge the gap from Episode 4’s concluded Wither Storm story arc to the new content.

The voice cast will be joined by Sean Astin, which known as Sam Gamgee in the “Lord of the Ring” movie. Other voices featured are those of Catherine Taber and Patton Oswalt as Jesse and Paul Reubens of Pee-Wee Herman.

While the three extra episodes will not be a part of the existing season pass, gamers can still buy the upcoming episodes 6, 7 and 8, provided that they have already downloaded at least one of the older episodes.

Launched in October 2015, Minecraft: Story Mode is an all-new narrative-driven game series developed by Telltale Games in collaboration with Mojang. Three more episodes are planned this year, but no official announcement has been issued by Telltale Games and its partner Mojang

“We’re not going into detail about the content of those yet, but we can confirm that they’ll be great, and maybe come with a slightly different flavor to the previous season,” adds Hill, via the Mojang’s website.
