Yes, Minecraft players can now download Star Wars classic skin packs which will only launch for Xbox One and Xbox 360.
If you are a Minecraft player as well as Star Wars fan, then you will have real fun placing blocks while building anything you can imagine. It’s up to you if want to take Minecraft’s unending adventures in the character of Luke Skywalker or the ruthless figure of Darth Vader.
According to EuroGamer, the latest skin pack contains 55 skins featuring the characters in the original trilogy, including the furred biped Ewok and short rodent-like Jawa. PlayStation fans might get a little upset because the deal is only between Disney and Microsoft for now. And it’s not the last X-box exclusive Star Wars-theme because Microsoft is promising gamers some major updates stating that fans can “look forward to even more downloadable Star Wars content releasing in the future.” Players can expect the addition of “ridable horses, along with enemies such as bats, witches and the Wither, plus new items such as beacons, hoppers, haybales and fireworks.” Microsoft just bought Mojang and Minecraft last September in an incredible $2.5 billion.
Other characters included in the Star Wars Classic Skin Pack DLC are Leia, Han, Chewbacca, Tusken Raider, Stormtrooper, C-3PO, Blockade Runner Soldier, Ben Kenobi, Greedo, Governor Tarkin, Boba Fett, Bossk, Dengar, Yoda, Rancor, Rancor Keoer, Oola, Zuckuss, R2-D2, Scout Trooper, etc. Which character do you like best? Still you can choose to recreate your top Death Star moments, Endor and Hoth moments, if you are in the mood.
According to Inquisitr, Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia dominate the exclusive skin pack with seven different gears for each of them. Han Solo has three outfits. The new skins are now available in Xbox Store for $2.99 and you can find the complete list of your adored characters of Star Wars in there. When the new trilogy arrives in December 2015, another marketing opportunity may come along the way. Microsoft and Disney probably saw the perfect timing.
Meanwhile, wind of reports say that the first teaser trailer of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be released Friday in the U.S. theatres. The film officially opens December 18, 2015.
