Titled A Block and a Hard Place, Minecraft: Story Mode Episode 4 releases worldwide on December 22 for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC/Mac, and iOS/Android. If you have the disc-based version of the game, Episode 4 will be available the same day via an online update.

Bringing the Saga of the Wither Storm to a close, here’s what Telltale Games says about Episode 4 [SPOILERS AHEAD]:

In Episode 4, with the fearsome Wither Storm more dangerous than ever, Jesse, Reuben, and the crew discover there is one thing that can destroy the command block at the heart of the monster – but they’ll need to brave the perils of the Farlands to find it. As uneasy allies and ailing friends threaten to tear the group apart, can they defeat the Wither Storm in their final battle? And what sacrifices must be made to succeed? Find out in Episode 4′s epic ‘Wither Storm Finale’ that will turn the page on one chapter, before adventures may begin anew…

Episode 5 will follow in early 2016. Telltale is keeping it under wraps for now, but did say, “You can expect to have a better idea of what’s to come for the Order of the Stone after playing Episode 4.”
