Minecraft gamers revel in building landscapes, killing zombies and creating their own imaginative storylines around virtual reality worlds. It's a game with seemingly endless possibilities and pretty much no plot or story whatsoever. But that's all about to change with the story mode version coming to Amazon Oct. 27.

Available on X-Box, Playstation, computers and Android phones and tablets, Minecraft Story Mode will be a different approach from projects developer Telltale is known for, including The Walking DeadGame of Thrones and Fables. Rather than transforming a story-heavy work into a streamlined video game, Minecraft Story Mode will be taking a story-absent work and giving it a different angle.

Still, it appears this is exactly what the Minecraft developers were looking for. The game trailers depict new characters and a series of plot-related adventures. Fans of the original Minecraft will still be able to come up with many of their own creations to give the game a similar look and feel to its predecessor. According to chief word officer Owen Hill of Mojang, creators of Minecraft

The interactive storytellers at Telltale are giving players the chance to explore their own unique interpretation of the Minecraft universe. They've crafted a story that follows the logic of Minecraft but still manages to feel original. It's actually pretty funny too. And the pig is adorable. We're super excited about players digging deeper into the world of Minecraft: Story Mode later this year.

The game will come in five separate episodes, with the following four to be released at later dates.
