For fans of Minecraft, this is exciting news. It will add new tools for players to spice up the game, while building on existing content. For non-fans, this news is simply cementing the concept of DLC and the effect it can have on a game. With “true” DLC and add-ons becoming the latest trend to keep a game fresh (Ex: Bioshock Infinite, Borderlands 2), it’s worth keeping an eye on upcoming games and their potential to use this sale model of re-skins and DLC.
