Minecraft Story Mode Episode 6 is the first in the second season of the game series. Many people talk about this episode because it is so different from the others. If you’ve heard about it then you might be curious about the whole game or maybe you are trying to find episode 6 because you just finished episode 5. Either way, you will find all your Story Mode information here.
What is Minecraft Story Mode?
Minecraft is a popular block building open world sandbox game where players try to survive in a block world. The popularity of the game convinced game makers that a story version would do just as well. That is Minecraft Story Mode.
In the game players move a character around to interact with objects and people. You must complete puzzles and tasks to further the story. One of the most important parts of the game is when you must answer questions. Your answers help determine what happens in the rest of the story. Your answers affect the story in all the episodes as you play.
For this reason, Minecraft Story Mode has a fun replay factor. You can play again and choose different answers to see how the story changes.
The games connection to Minecraft is that the characters wander in a Minecraft world with all the same mobs and terrains. They use Minecraft items the same as in the game. Players do not wander and build, though. You just point and click to control the story.
The game is available on many devices including PC, console (PlayStation, Xbox, Wii), Android, and iOS.
How to Get Minecraft Episode 6
There are a grand total (so far) of eight episodes in Minecraft Story Mode separated into two seasons. The first episode “The Order of the Stone” hit the market in October 2015. Players could purchase the first game by itself or purchase a Season Pass. The Season Pass provided the first episode and paid for all the next episodes up front so you just had to download them when they were released. The last released in March 2016. The Season Pass contained only the first five episodes.
So, what about episode 6?
Episode 6 “A Portal to Mystery” hit the market in June 2016. It was the first in a new pass called the Adventure Pass. This pass contains episodes 6 through 8. Just like with the Season Pass, you would download episode 6 and pay for the next two up front so you could just download them when they were released. All three episodes are out now. The last hit the market in September 2016.
How do you get Episode 6? If you already played the first five episodes then you just need to download the Adventure Pass to get the rest of the episodes. Or you can download episode 6 by itself. If you haven’t played the first five episodes you should start with the Season Pass and work your way up.
What to Expect from Minecraft Story Mode Episode 6?
Episode 6 of Minecraft Story Mode is a bit different from the rest which is why it got a bit more attention than the others. It is almost like a brief break from the main story as what happens in this episode doesn’t really affect the main story of the game. Your choices don’t affect the later chapters and you don’t really learn anything new about the main story.
Despite that, it is still fun to play and has attracted many Minecraft fans. Why is it so popular? It is popular because of the fun guest stars.
In Episode 6, the characters in the game end up in a portal where they meet a bunch of famous YouTube channel stars. These stars are well-known for their Minecraft videos. In this portal realm, you will meet:
If you watch YouTube Minecraft videos, or your kid does, then you probably recognize at least one of these names.
The YouTube characters look and act exactly like they do in their own Minecraft videos. The voices are also done by the same people and not voice actors pretending to be there. This is what makes the episode so much fun for Minecraft fans.
The story is one separate from the main plot. In Episode 6, the characters come up a murder mystery and must help to solve it with the YouTube cast. The story has a fun twist but there are no spoilers here!

DanTDM’s Hair:Fans of The Diamond Minecart who watch his videos already know that he is constantly changing his hair color. One day it will be blue and the next pink.
