Microsoft has announced a new Star Wars DLC for Minecraft.
The new DLC introduces content from the original Star Wars trilogy and The Mandalorian, in the form of a new map, skin pack, bespoke texture set, mobs and item reskins, UI treatment and a licensed soundtrack. As you can see in the video, the map boasts 12 lovely dioramas for players to explore. Although some of the new face textures are a little less lovely, and will probably haunt my dreams for some time to come. At least Baby Yoda now has an official Minecraft model.
From the promotional video, it looks like you’ll be able to recreate any number of iconic Star Wars scenes, such as Luke and Darth Vader’s duel on Cloud City. There’s even a Death Star.
Minecraft has released Star Wars packs in the past, but they mostly contained skins. Some dedicated fans have also recreated Star Wars in Minecraft, but the feat took over three years. It’s safe to say that this is the first opportunity Minecraft players have ever had to experience the Star Wars universe at this scale.
