The Star Wars DLC pack adds content from both the original trilogy and The Mandalorian. It includes a new map and a bespoke texture set. Plus, a brand new skin pack that includes almost all of your fan favorites. Not to mention mob and items reskins, a UI upgrade, and a licensed soundtrack. Truthfully, it’s quite the collection for both Minecraft and Star Wars fans. They’ve done so much work to bring the universe fans love into the block-based world.
Now obviously, if you’re on PC you could probably bring most of this into your gameworld already via mods. However, for players on consoles, this is a great addition. And having it all in an official pack makes it a much easier process for everyone. So, if you’re a more casual Minecraft player, this is perfect regardless of which platform you play on.
Minecraft is available now on everything but your toaster. The Star Wars DLC should be in the game today. And make sure to stay tuned for updates around the upcoming Caves & Cliffs update. It’s set to launch sometime next year, so we’ll surely have more news on it in the coming months.
