Telltale surprise launches Minecraft: Story Mode episode two

Nether expected that.

The second slice of Telltale's Minecraft: Story Mode is creeping out for release on PC and console this week.

Episode Two: Assembly Required launches just a couple of weeks after the season premiere - it's the fastest turnaround for a second episode in recent Telltale history.

PC, Xbox 360 and Xbox One players should look out for it today, while PlayStation 3 and PS4 owners will likely get it tomorrow in the UK when the PlayStation Store updates here.

This Friday will see the launch of the game's physical edition - which just includes the season's first episode on a disc. You also get a redeemable season pass for the rest, which you'll then download as and when each episode launches.

We played through the season's first episode earlier this month and found Minecraft: Story Mode is familiar fun for a family audience, albeit with Telltale's cookie-cutter mechanics firmly in place.
