Just a few weeks ago, Telltale Games brought players back into the “build anything” world of Minecraft: Story Mode with the game’s second season, and with a new adventure beginning and trouble stirring for Jesse and his companions, the story is set to continue with a new episode in a few weeks.

Developer Telltale Games has announced that the second episode of Minecraft: Story Mode: Season Two, titled “Giant Consequences” will arrive across all platforms on August 15th, 2017. Picking right up where the premiere from last month left off, you can check out a description for the series’ second episode below:

Jesse and the gang survived the Sea Temple, but they brought home a little more than they bargained for: a lost adventurer, a powerful device, and a colossal enemy capable of grinding Beacontown to dust. There may be more to this fearsome foe than meets the eye, but to find out, Jesse — together with a few trusty friends — must embark on another adventure, this time into the icy unknown…

In addition to the release date announcement for the second season’s latest episode, Telltale Games also confirmed that the complete first season of Minecraft: Story Mode (which features the first season plus the additional three “Adventure Pass” episodes) will release for the Nintendo Switch for $39.99 on August 22nd in North America, following on August 25th for Europe and other regions. The second season of the series is also expected to arrive sometime this fall, according to Telltale Games’ Eric Stirpe.

Minecraft: Story Mode is currently available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Mac, iOS, and Android.
