The popular sandbox title from developer Mojang is now available on the Apple TV. Minecraft: Apple TV Edition was originally announced at Apple's “Hello again” Mac event in October. The new version of the game is available for $19.99 on Apple's fourth-generation set-top box. It includes the "Holiday 2015, Town Folk, City Folk skin packs, along with the Plastic, Natural, Cartoon, and Festive 2016 mash-ups," according to the official Minecraft blog.
A bunch of mobile games have launched early on the Apple App Store today, and one of them is the highly anticipated Minecraft: Story Mode. The newest Minecraft game was published by Telltale -- the developer behind the popular episodic titles The Walking Dead and Tales from the Borderlands.
When you think about it Telltale Games and Mojang kind of make an odd pairing; one creates interactive episodic video games, while the other is the developer behind the most popular free-to-build sandbox game in existence. But that's not stopping the two studios from teaming up to release an "all-new narrative-driven game series" based on Mojang's popular Minecraft title.
In case you didn't already know, Telltale is the developer behind the hit interactive video games based on the popular television shows Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead. The developer also recently launched its first series based on a the console game Borderlands. Telltale's games are released in episodes and are akin to a choose your own adventure where the narrative is driven by a players choices instead of their actions. Minecraft: Story Mode will also be an episodic series with its own original story set in the Minecraft world. The game will not be an "add-on for Minecraft, but rather a separate stand-alone product that will premiere in 2015 on consoles, computers and mobile devices," according to the official announcement.
