Minecraft Story Mode – Episode 5 Screens and Date, Episodes 6, 7, 8 Confirmed

Minecraft Story Mode will be a total of 8 episodes with Episode 5: Order Up bridging to a series of three adventures in Episodes 6, 7 and 8.

The three chapters are discussed as “continuing Adventures of the New Order of the Stone following the additional escapades of Jesse the group as they explore new and unfamiliar worlds beyond their own”. Certainly, this sounds like each offers a different location that is self contained rather than a single ongoing adventure.

Although already known about, today is the first official confirmation of a release date for Episode 5: Order Up that will be available on March 29th on PC/Mac, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and iOS and Android-based devices.

Minecraft Story Mode E05 includes the following chapters:
E05 CH1 – Finders Keepers
E05 CH2 – Losers Weepers
E05 CH3 – Friends in High Places
E05 CH4 – Castles in the Sky
E05 CH5 – Out of the Blue
E05 CH6 – To Boldly Go

New Minecraft PE Multiplayer Modes “Space Race” and “Block Hunt” [InPVP Nova]

We talk to Niraj Morar, the creator of the InPvP multiplayer server game modes for Minecraft pocket edition. These enable players to enjoy modded Minecraft multiplayer experiences using just the standard vanilla Minecraft Pocket.

As part of the interview he unveils two new Minecraft Multiplayer game modes:
– Space Race – A mini-game staged challenge to head for the stars in a beautiful newly created world. Footage shows different mini-arenas for what looks like a variety of team battles. Two teams go head to head against each other.
– Block Hunt – Disguise yourself as any Minecraft Block then hide in the world so that you don’t get found by the searchers.
– Build Battles – Build different constructions based on the theme, topic or object. Then vote on who’s build is the best.

We also talk about the different in-app purchases and what child protection steps InPvP implements for its players.

InPvP Nova’s main competition comes from Hypixel and Lifeboat. These are minigame networks but without as much of a theme.
