At this point, Minecraft is easily one of the best-selling and most popular video games ever created, and it shows no signs of slowing down, often featured on the top-selling games of the month lists, and continuously supported with content updates, DLC, and more.
The latest DLC for Minecraft has hit the console versions of the game, so PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One owners of the game can download the DLC now for $4. This time around, the DLC in question is based around the fascinating material of Greek mythology.
For $4, players can snag 39 skins based on characters from Greek mythology, including Medusa, Heracles, Hermes, Zeus, and more. However, the DLC also contains a matching custom texture set as well as a new look for the Minecraft UI that fits the Greek mythology theme as well.
Furthermore, this new batch of DLC also boasts its own original soundtrack. Better yet, the soundtrack comes from the composer of the highly successful Ori and the Blind Forest, so high quality can be expected by those that plan on picking up the DLC for whatever version of Minecraft they prefer to play.
The Greek mythology DLC for Minecraft is just the latest in an extremely long line of DLC packs that have been released for the game over the years, but it’s definitely one of the most visually interesting. Past DLC packs have included skins and textures based on The Simpsons, Doctor Who, and the cartoon Star Wars Rebels, among many others.
Thanks to the continued success of the game, fans shouldn’t expect the Minecraft phenomenon to die down any time soon. The most recent Minecon event broke world attendance records, and Microsoft didn’t buy Minecraft and Mojang for $2.5 billion just to let the IP sit. On the contrary, expect Minecraft‘s prominence and popularity to only expand even further, with many new developments on the way, including HoloLens integration.
As showcased at E3 2015, Minecraft with HoloLens is incredibly impressive, and the possibilities are endless. While we may never see a full-fledged Minecraft 2, the series will persevere thanks to added features such as HoloLens support, and Minecraft will likely end up ported to every gaming platform imaginable before it’s all said and done.
Speaking of the Microsoft acquisition of Minecraft, it’s nice to see Microsoft stick to their word about continuing to support the game on non-Xbox platforms. There’s been Xbox exclusive DLC for Minecraft in the past, but for the most part, almost all the DLC is available across all consoles that support the game, and that’s the case with this latest Greek mythology DLC as well.
Minecraft is currently available for just about every platform under the sun. The Greek mythology DLC is now available for the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One versions of the game.
