Coming soon to Minecraft – The Minecraft Marketplace

Today Microsoft has announced a new platform for Minecraft – the Minecraft Marketplace! Arriving with the 1.1 Discovery Update this Spring, Minecraft Marketplace is a new program that will give players on our Bedrock Engine platforms (mobile and Windows 10 PC) the opportunity to browse, download and play cool community creations from within the game itself. You can uncover all kinds of amazing new content in the Discovery Update.

The idea is to give mobile and Windows 10 players access to a growing catalogue of fun stuff, curated and supplied by us – the Minecraft team – safely and simply, while giving Minecraft creators another way to make a living from the game, allowing them to support themselves in the creation of future projects.

At launch, Minecraft will have a catalogue of amazing adventure maps, texture packs, mini games and more, created by well-known community creators like BlockWorks, Noxcrew and Qwertyuiop The Pie, among others. This is just the start will a few existing partners to get the program running, and Minecraft will be opening up submissions to anyone with a registered business later on down the line.

To make all of this happen, Microsoft is introducing Minecraft Coins, which players can buy using in-app purchases with real currency on their device. We know that Minecraft players often play Minecraft on multiple devices, so we are working toward making content players buy available on multiple devices as well, enabled by a free Xbox Live account.

The Minecraft Marketplace will release with the 1.1 Discovery Update for Bedrock Engine platforms this spring!
