The final chapter of Minecraft: Story Mode’s first season is only a week away, Telltale Games confirmed on Wednesday, and the developers lined up two more guest stars for the eighth chapter of the episodic Minecraft adventure. And the best part of today’s announcement is that the duo, much like entire first season of Minecraft: Story Mode, should have something that appeals to both older and younger generations.

According to a press release, Telltale Games will publish the eighth episode of Minecraft: Story Mode on Sept. 13, wrapping up both the game’s first season of content and the content covered by the three-episode Adventure Pass that went on sale earlier this year. Details on the episode are relatively scarce, and there’s no trailer at this time, but Telltale did include a brief description of the season finale in today’s announcement. Here’s how the studio describes Episode 8:

In Episode 8: 'A Journey's End?', with Harper leading them to the world of the Old Builders, Jesse and crew finally have their chance to return home... but it won't be easy, and the stakes are high. You'll need to take on opponents in a series of gladiatorial games to win your freedom, save your friends, and maybe, just maybe, make it back to your own world!

The final episode also features appearances from Jim Cummings (Darkwing Duck) and Kari Wahlgren (Rick and Morty) as newcomers Hadrian and Mevia. There’s still no word on an all-encompassing purchase for the first season, meaning you still have to purchase both the Season and Adventure passes to get all eight episodes, but at least you won’t have to wait much longer to marathon your way through Minecraft: Story Mode in one sitting.

Minecraft: Story Mode is available for PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii U, PS Vita, PC, iOS, Android and probably a few high-end refrigerators. The series’ eighth episode, “A Journey’s End?”, debuts Sept. 13.
