Minecraft Xbox 360 Getting Mass Effect Mash-Up DLC

Minecraft is generally about exploring your very own world, hollowing it out, hoarding its resources, and building a utopia for yourself and your farm animals. That's about to change, though, with the expansion announced today.

Microsoft, Mojang and BioWare revealed in a press release this afternoon that the Mass Effect "Mash-Up Pack" for Minecraft on Xbox 360 will be released Sept. 4 for $US3.99 (or 320 Microsoft Points — wait, those are still around?).

In these new "Mash-Up" expansions — of which there will definitely be more — "worlds from other popular game franchises are fused into Minecraft's iconic pixelated form."

The Mass Effect pack features a pixely recreation of the Mars Facility location from Mass Effect 3, plus Mass Effect textures and craft-able items, themed menus and UI, 36 new characters skins, and 22 music tracks. It was created by Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition developers 4J Studios.

    Huh. That's pretty neat, that it's more than just a skin pack. 4J are doing a lot of fun things with the Xbox version of Minecraft, it seems.

      Yeah I looked at this and decided I may actually play it now, stopped playing it on PC a lifetime ago

    Sounds like the same thing that the LittleBigPlanet devs are doing.

    Just make the bloody mass effect 1 citadel for us to explore.
