Minecraft getting a Marketplace soon

Creators can sell their work for real income through the store

Posted on

Microsoft has announced the upcoming launch of the Minecraft Marketplace.

Arriving alongside the 1.1 Discovery Update this Spring, Minecraft Marketplace is a new program that will give players on Bedrock Engine platforms (mobile and Windows 10 PC) the opportunity to browse, purchase, download and play community creations from within the game itself.

The Marketplace will be populated by items created by well-known community creators like BlockWorks, Noxcrew and Qwertyuiop The Pie, among others, and filtered by the Minecraft developers to ensure quality. At launch, there will be a catalogue of adventure maps, texture packs, mini games and more.

The idea is to give Minecraft creators another way to make a living from the game, allowing them to support themselves in the creation of ever-greater projects, while giving Pocket and Windows 10 players access to a growing catalogue. And, of course, you can still manually download free community creations you’ve found out there on the internet, too.

To make all of this happen, the developers are introducing Minecraft Coins, an in-game currency which players can buy using in-app purchases with real cash. Coins let creators set flexible prices and take their share of what they sell. The app store platforms take a 30% cut, but creators get the majority after that.

The Minecraft Marketplace will release with the 1.1 Discovery Update for Bedrock Engine platforms this spring.
