Telltale Games has announced the release date for the seventh episode in the Minecraft: Story Mode series, alongside revealing the episode will feature a special guest star.
Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 7: Access Denied will begin launching worldwide on July 26 for PC and Mac via the Telltale Online Store, Steam and other digital distribution outlets. While the episode will also launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 iOS and Android based devices digitally on the same day. The episode will also be coming to Windows Store-based devices, but no release date was revealed at this time.
In Episode 7, Jesse and his/her group of friends continue their search to return home and enter a new world controlled by PAMA – a sinister “thinking machine” determined to command everyone and everything to create optimal efficiency. Episode 7 will also feature the voice work of Yvette Nicole Brown (Community) as Harper, who is actually the creator of PAMA in hiding.
Minecraft: Story Mode – Episode 7 is the second episode in the Adventure Pass add-on series, which unfortunately does not come as part of the original Season Pass. Players wanting to experience Episode 6 and the upcoming release of Episode 7 will need to digitally purchase the Adventure Pass for $14.99 USD, which will also allow players to download Episode 8 when it is available. If you do want to play the Adventure Pass content, be aware you will need to either own Episode 1 of the series or the Season Pass disc, in order to play/purchase the Adventure Pass content.
