Marketplace to Bring Cool Community Creations to Others

Marketplace to Bring Cool Community Creations to Others - Minecraft -

The Minecraft Marketplace is coming soon to the game with the Discovery Update (v1.1) later this spring. The idea is to allow community creations to be sold within the game itself. The shop items will be curated by the Minecraft team and sold through the Marketplace. Creators will be able to "make a living from the game, allowing them to support themselves in the creation of future projects".

The catalog will first be packed with adventure maps, texture packs, mini-games and much more that have been created by some of the game's most famous players. Over time, other creators will be added to the partner list in order to have their products featured in the Marketplace.

Players will be able to purchase items directly from within the app through the use of Minecraft Coins, a new currency.

There is no release date yet for the Discovery Update, but devs promise "this spring".

We'll have a public beta launching on Android in mid-April. This will focus on testing the new Minecraft Coins, so you won’t see any creator content in the beta, but we'll add that when we launch later in Spring. Let us know what you think!
