After Steve graced Super Smash Bros. with his presence, Minecraft gets to enjoy another big-time crossover with the arrival of Star Wars DLC. Quite possibly the game’s biggest DLC pack yet, the expansion introduces a bevy of characters, vehicles, and music from a galaxy far, far away.
The DLC, which is available today in the Minecraft Marketplace, features content themed after A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back, Return of the Jedi, and The Mandalorian. The pack includes a whopping 36 character skins from Luke and Vader to Lando and Mando. Players can explore 12 planet dioramas of classic locations like Tatooine, Endor, Hoth, as well as The Mandalorian’s Nevarro and Sorgan.
Pilotable vehicles such as Speeders, X-Wings, and Mando’s Razor Crest will make getting around those worlds delightfully authentic. Additionally, the DLC includes a full bespoke texture set, mobs/items reskins, the original soundtrack and sound effects, and some new UI treatment. After watching the fun trailer (in the header above), it appears that Star Wars works well under the Minecraft aesthetic. It’ll be fun to see how players use the DLC to craft their own adventures. Maybe they’ll even find ways to craft their own version of Rise of Skywalker.
In related news, Minecraft Dungeons is (finally) getting cross-play this week. If you’d like to see other cool mash-up ideas, one creative fan whipped up a neat Among Us crossover featuring Minecraft.
