Minecraft by itself is already a truly enormous game, and it continues to get even larger with new updates, the next one being the large Caves and Cliffs Update coming next year. However, players can shake things up with their Minecraft gameplay with new maps, texture packs, skins, and even entire adventures complete with unique mechanics and stories. The latest to drop into the Minecraft Marketplace will combine the best of Minecraft and another massive franchise: Star Wars.
That’s right, Minecraft now has an official Star Wars DLC.
You can watch the trailer above to get an idea of what’s included in the DLC, but basically you’re looking at a mixture of content from Star Wars: A New Hope, the Empire Strikes Back, and Return of the Jedi, as well as the popular Mandalorian TV show that’s exclusive to Disney+. This includes a full map to explore, a texture set that changes the look and feel of the game, a skin pack to let you play as popular characters like Luke Skywalker, reskins for mobs and items to make them fit in to the Star Wars universe, a unique UI treatment, and finally a licensed soundtrack to deck Minecraft out with some Star Wars tunes.
The Star Wars DLC pack for Minecraft: Bedrock Edition is now available from the Minecraft Marketplace, if you’re interested in mixing Star Wars with one of the best games for kids on Xbox. If you’re a huge fan of Star Wars, especially the Mandalorian, there’s also a Limited Edition Xbox Wireless Controller designed after the Mandalorian that’s now available for pre-order. If you haven’t seen the Mandalorian, we definitely recommend it, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate is giving a month of Disney+ to subscribers for free.
