An Actual Minecraft Novel Is Being Written By The Author Of World War Z
Expect LOADS OF ZOMBIES.
If playing every waking hour in the world of Minecraft isn’t enough, the new Minecraft novel may be for you.
The novel, called Minecraft: The Island will be written by Max Brookes, the famed author of zombie book World War Z. It almost goes without saying that the Minecraft book will, of course, feature plenty of the undead hordes.
The book is described as “cuboid Robinson Crusoe, but madder: a hero stranded in an unfamiliar land, with unfamiliar rules, learning to survive against tremendous odds”.
Max Brookes isn’t only famous for writing the book that became a famous Brad Pitt movie, he’s also written graphic novels. He also wrote The Harlem Hellfighters, about the African American World War 1 regiment - who, incidentally, will also feature in the new Battlefield 1 game.
The novel may take a while to arrive still, so in the meantime you can look forward to the story-like gaming fun from Telltale games which is just finishing up its work on its first Minecraft game.
Before that there’s the Minecraft update next week with plenty of new items and more.
