Skyrim Mash-Up Coming to Minecraft for the Xbox 360
[Press release] Today at Minecon 2013, Mojang, Bethesda Game Studios, and Microsoft Studios proudly announced the development of “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” Mash-Up pack for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. Coming soon, this new pack will transform the legendary world of “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” into the iconic, pixelated look of Minecraft.
Developed by 4J Studios, “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” Mash-Up features an exclusive Skyrim-themed texture set, 40 character skins, themed menus and user interface, craftable items, and more than 20 iconic selections from “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” original game soundtrack. The comprehensive pack also includes a stunning pre-made world, recreating the memorable areas of Whiterun, Riverwood, and Bleak Falls Barrow.
Minecraft fans can check out and play the “The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim” Mash-Up for the very first time at Minecon 2013 in Orlando, Fla. on Nov. 2-3.
Want Minecraft but don’t have the cash? Just Pirate It!
Notch approves! A fan reached out to the Minecraft creator saying:
“I really like the game but lack the money to buy it. I thought I might at least ask for a free account before piracy.”
“Just pirate it. If you still like it when you can afford it in the future, buy it then. Also don’t forget to feel bad. ;)”
Of course, Minecraft has already sold more than 4 million copies, so I don’t think money is a real issue to Mr. Persson. In other news, Minecraft updated to version 1.1, so make to sure to grab it when you can.
