Players can download the pack today to incorporate content from classic films in the franchise, such as A New Hope, The Empire Strikes Back and Return Of The Jedi. Chracters from the ongoing TV series, The Mandalorian, are also included in the DLC. The pack costs 1340 Minecoins, which roughly equates to US$5.
Among the roster of new content are a map, 12 planet dioramas, a skin pack and a official soundtrack. Owners will be able to customise their character to their favourite hero or villain from the series, including Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and more. Players will also have the ability to travel to various Star Wars planets, from the sandy dunes of Tatooine to the snowy wasteland of Hoth.
A variety of content from The Mandalorian also adds the fan-favourite character, Baby Yoda, for players to meet and interact with as they explore the variety of worlds.

Minecraft has previously added crossover packs with other popular films. Most recent was the inclusion of Jurassic World, which delivered a blocky recreation of the theme park, complete with life-sized dinosaurs to encounter and missions to complete. Other previous content has included Toy Story and A Nightmare Before Christmas.
VR support was also added to Minecraft back in September, which allowed PlayStation owners to use their headsets to experience the world in a new light for the first time. The update was free for all owners of the game.
