Minecraft Story Mode Episode 5 won’t install

By Alan Ng - Mar 30, 2016

Minecraft fans have been waiting a long time for the Minecraft Story Mode Episode 5 release date, which finally happened hours ago.

Unfortunately though it looks like the launch did not go to plan for many players. Specifically, we see that there was a huge number of users who were complaining that Minecraft Story Mode Episode 5 won’t install, with Xbox 360 appearing to be hit the most.

We know that other platforms may be affected too with Minecraft Story Mode Episode 5 not installing, but the core of the issues happened around 9 hours ago.

My son was so excited as he has been waiting for what seems like forever on this game to come out…So we were finally able to buy it yesterday (2 days after release date) wouldnt let us download it until the next day (today) , then my son gets all excited yet again, only to be let down AGAIN because after it downloaded and we tried to reopen the game it just stays on “connecting” and won’t open any of the episodes now….Getting pretty peeved at this point!
