A total of five Minecraft: Story Mode episodes were previously announced. But today, Telltale Games confirmed that three post-season episodes are also on the way.

As for what Telltale has in store, the company only divulged the following:

“These continuing Adventures of the New Order of the Stone will follow the additional escapades of Jesse the group as they explore new and unfamiliar worlds beyond their own. All three of these episodes will be add-ons to the season, so you’ll need to own at least the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode in order to purchase and play these three chapters in the series which will include episodes 6, 7, and 8.”

Telltale has only brought out the first episode of Minecraft: Story Mode on Wii U thus far. We should be getting the other four episodes at some point, along with the newly-announced post-season releases.

Telltale also shared the following regarding the fifth Minecraft: Story Mode episode, which has now wrapped up development:

On a tip from Ivor, Jesse and friends head to an abandoned temple holding mysterious treasures. Ambushed by former Ocelot Aiden and his crew, our heroes find themselves in an entirely new world: Sky City! As they explore, the Order finds that resources are at a premium, and nothing but ‘The Void’ exists below the known world. When Aiden convinces Sky City’s ruler that the New Order of the Stone are up to no good, you’ll need to make some tough choices to clear your name, and keep Aiden from destroying an innocent world.
