    Adventure Pass (Episode 6-8 DLC) FAQ

    [Unofficial FAQ compiled by Volunteer community Moderators]

    (1) What is the Adventure Pass?

    The Adventure Pass is a downloadable add-on for Season 1 of Minecraft that adds three more episodes (Episodes 6-8) to Season 1 of Minecraft. You must own at least Episode 1 of Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1 to download the Adventure Pass.

    (2) Does the Adventure Pass come for free if I own the Season Pass, or do I need to purchase these extra episodes?

    You will need to purchase the three extra episodes, and you must own at least Episode 1 of Minecraft: Story Mode Season 1. They do not come included with the Season Pass for Season 1.

    (3) When do episodes from the Adventure Pass premiere?

    Episode 6 will premiere June 7th. Episodes 7 and 8 will follow "soon after" in Summer 2016. Stay tuned for more details in the time ahead.

    (4) What is the plot behind these extra episodes?

    Episodes 6-8 will focus on the adventures of Jesse and his friends after the first four episodes of Season 1. Episode 5 (included with the first Season) will lead into the story for the three extra episodes as DLC. The Telltale blog goes into more detail, saying "these continuing Adventures of the New Order of the Stone will follow the additional escapades of Jesse and the group as they explore new and unfamiliar worlds beyond their own."

    (5) Telltale has so many games in development. Will this affect the quality or development time of this game?

    No. Since the success of Walking Dead: Season 1, Telltale has sized up from 70 people to near 350 people, and now have five times the amount of staff members they had during Season 1, so multiple projects at once should not be a concern. They now have a big enough staff to work on four projects at once as well as extra staff members to work on side projects.

    Even though Telltale announces their projects ahead of time, this doesn't mean that each game is in full production. All games by Telltale Games are first started with a small team of just a few people, who do things common in very early development, such as sorting out the season wide story and working on concept art. As the deadline nears, more people are brought in to work on other things, but it is still a small team. Full production doesn't start until the current seasons wrap up, and seasons that are announced years in advance won't begin full production until long after that. The currently ongoing series also don't affect each other, as different teams are working on each project. Even in the case of shared staff, the work load is light enough for these staff members, that their working between projects doesn't have any affect on the quality or development time of either project.

    In an interview with Hollywood Reporter, Kevin Bruner stated that "Telltale's approach to game development is much more like television than most other game developers. Across all of our series — The Walking Dead, Minecraft: Story Mode and more — the development process at Telltale spends a significant amount of time upfront in the writer's rooms not just with writers, but designers, directors and creative input from all across the studio. It's not unusual for our games to exist longer on whiteboards and sticky notes and in scripts than they do in traditional game production. It's incredibly similar to how TV often spends so much time in preproduction and planning before moving into actually shooting."

  • You can already pre-order the DLC, so i guess it's coming faster than what we expected? I'm really hoping for the next month to have EP6, it's unlikely, but possible.

  • edited March 2016

    Episode 5 was pretty good, though I wish TellTale could just add a few references Bioshock: Infinite in the Sky City. I kept looking for the Rosalind and Robert Lutece.

    I can't wait for Episode 6! Please don't hurt my Lukas!

  • Dang, that time Lukas was pushed, it gave me Reuben flashbacks, thankfully nothing happened, and it can't happen, there's no need to everyone die.

  • It gave me a heartache too, man. And then he was all hurt, and I was afraid that if Aiden got down there he would finish the job. It made me pretty worried.

  • Sooo... am I the only one really pissed here?
    I bought the game for the FULL PRICE expecting to get a FULL STORY. TWD: 400 Days, for example, was totally ok: they finished TWD's story, and released a DLC that was optional (you didn't need it to understand anything) and presented alternate stories. But this is bullshit: suddenly, they just decide to split the story to make more money out of people's expectations. They finished Episode 5 with a lazy cliffhanger just to make fans spend more money. THEY SOLD AN UNFINISHED GAME NAMED AS A "SEASON PASS". Because that's what Minecraft is: a money magnet.
    And I thought the game was already crappy enough, BOOM, Telltale surprises me once again.

    (and look, I used to be a fan. Seriously)

  • I still have "Comming soon" text for Episode FIVE
    i don't know what's the problem

    -i bought minecraft story mode on g2a.com
    -entered the code BEFORE the verification
    - also can't see my choices on the "Choices" menu
    but i have Minecraft story mode in my library
    what's going on? some help needed

  • https://www.telltalegames.com/minecraftstorymode/adventurepass/

    Telltale has a new section of the site up for the Adventure Pass where you can pre-order it. They also confirm a Summer 2016 date for Episode 6.

  • Wait hold the phone, no Episode 6 Waiting Thread yet, not until Episode 5 gets released. (Which it hasn't yet on Android and for some other platforms.)

  • Download Episode 101?

  • I want episode 6 now!
    even tho its not out right now.

  • 101 is just a shorter way of saying Season 1, Episode 01.

    Download Episode 101?

  • Where is Cuwwa?!?!

  • Never mind cuwwa is here

    Where is Cuwwa?!?!

  • Man! Episode 5 was intense!

  • At the end of Episode 5 it showed portals, and now I know what will happen in EPisode 6, DanTDM even says he has some info on Episode 6!!!:D

  • I reckon after episode 6the last 2 episodes will come out pretty quick, it's what they make it sound like

  • I still cant get episode 5..... I cri ery time

  • I can imagine the episodes will be released monthly. That's a trend Telltale seems to be returning to, after they moved away from monthly episode releases for a while.

    I reckon after episode 6the last 2 episodes will come out pretty quick, it's what they make it sound like

  • Season's sometimes end with cliffhangers. It's cruel but it's true. At least MCSM gets more episodes. Tales From the Borderlands just ended with a HUGE cliffhanger. We're probably not getting a S2 either :(

  • Summer? Damn another long wait

  • I wonder why Aiden has such a grudge against Jesse... He's a real jackass sometimes. He should be on the universal hero's side instead of being his enemy. Plus, now he thinks he's all strong as crap with those arm guards or whatever. Jesse has ACTUAL armor AND the ultimate weapon. Aiden=noob

  • Summer?!

    But Spring in the north hemisphere just started, like last week!

    Aww man...

  • Hey guys just woken up to news that I can play episode 5 on iOS see ya! And can't wait for all the rage on a release date for this thread!

  • Summer ? ok i will spam them with emails if they do that

  • hopefully episode 6 will not take as long to release as episode 5 did because that wait was intense

  • They said summer so it's like episode 5.

    hopefully episode 6 will not take as long to release as episode 5 did because that wait was intense

  • OzzyUKOzzyUK Moderator

    They said the release date is "summer 2016" which means episode 6 is due to release June at the earliest, with that in mind i think we should expect a wait time similar to the wait between episodes 4-5 or possibly longer.

    hopefully episode 6 will not take as long to release as episode 5 did because that wait was intense

  • Wow, Summer huh? Ah well, I can wait, Episode 5 was actually pretty good.
