In a bid to add nuance to the console version of everyone’s favorite voxel vocation, Mojang has released a Minecraft Greek Mythology Mash-Up Pack for $3.99
Please don’t offend this content by calling it a skin pack or DLC. Aside from offering a list of 39 new skins, this new mash-up offers new music, block sets, UI, and an expansive map to explore. Oh yeah, that new music is composed by Gareth Coker, the talent behind the music of Ori and the Blind Forest. Yes, it is very exciting.
Once you’ve entered the Hellenic block world of your dreams, you can recreate Greece’s best moments by yourself or with friends! Why not build the Trojan Horse, but this time you can fill that sneaky wooden pony with some TNT. Troy will never know what hit em’.
As you soak in the cool trade winds of the Mediterranean, baking like an olive in the setting sun, you can cast gaze to the skies and thank the pantheon of Gods for your good fortune and lack of Creepers. Not only can you live as a mere mortal in this mash-up, now Zeus and his companions are available to recreate the drama of the ancient deities.
Here is a full list of the skins:
- Helen of Troy
- Argonaut 1
- Argonaut 2
- Sea Monster
- Trojan Warrior
- Stygian Witch
