Many users think that the popular game Minecraft needed a place where players were able to share their content or look at other people’s creations. Now, Microsoft announced that, this spring, they are going to release a new Marketplace for the game, as well as its own currency.
This new Marketplace will come with some premieres. For instance, this is the first time when businesses will be able to make their content public and sell it to the players. Besides, it will contain several other mini games, new maps, and special packs which will guarantee a better gaming experience and a lot of adventure.
The new Marketplace brings original content and items
All these new items, together with the content, will be available on Xbox Live, where players can buy them from. This Marketplace will not let you get bored. You can find new items to change your character’s appearance completely, find a new map to explore, and enjoy the creations of the highly imaginative Minecraft community.
As for the content which will reach the Marketplace, Microsoft announced that they are already in discussion with several businesses that are interested in making their original content available for Minecraft users. However, anyone Microsoft assures people that anyone who has a registered business can bring their content on the Marketplace.
Microsoft explained why they took this decision. They think that Minecraft creators deserve to have their content seen and enjoyed by everyone. Moreover, they also deserve some monetary reward which would prompt them to create more. This will keep both the creators and the players engaged.
Offering the creators the chance to make new content
If players see new and exciting maps coming constantly on the Marketplace, they will keep playing the game and want to explore more of its adventures. If they purchase the content, then the creators can keep making new one.
If you do not have all the necessary resources, there are a lot of free creations which you can download. Thus, the Marketplace has all the good stuff for everyone, and everything is closely monitored and managed by Microsoft.
As mentioned before, Microsoft introduces a special currency for the game. You can purchase these coin with real money, which then allow you to purchase content or items from the Marketplace. At the moment, they will launch a beta version where they will test the coins. Then, at the time of the official release, the Marketplace will also contain the original content.
