Our favourite low res construction and adventure game Minecraft is soon getting a major expansion pack.

The Chinese Mythology Mash-Up Pack invites players to explore ancient temples hidden among the cherry blossoms and survive the night at the Great Wall. In this new mash-up, you will be able to visit an exquisitely-created, pre-made world. Wander through the streets of an ancient great city, marvel at the dragons that dwell around the high mountains, contemplate on your crafting within a mythical monastery and just enjoy the view as you walk through fields and discover how mobs would look in ancient China.

This mash-up also brings you 41 new skins to choose from and 13 themed music tracks for your worlds and on top of all that, the Chinese Mythology Mash-Up also includes a very special map for the Battle mini game which we released back in June.

See a video demoing the pack below:

The pack will be available on the 4th October.

Also on the 4th October Microsoft will be delivering a free game update for all Console Editions that will bring even more long-awaited features to your game, such as:

  • New items: Farm beetroots and keep yourself nourished with some healthy beetroot soup
  • Banners: Make beautiful banners to hang in your bases and spruce the place up
  • New terrain generation: You’ll find Igloos in Arctic biomes, Fossils buried underground, as well as different village paths and materials
  • New blocks: End Bricks, Beetroot, Grass Path, Frosted Ice, Magma, Nether Wart Block, Red Nether Brick and Bone Block
