Minecraft Skyrim Mash-Up Pack Announced

By Dread Reaver, 3 years ago
At the recent Minecon event in Orlando, Microsoft and Bethesda announced that work is currently underway on a Skyrim themed content package for their crazily popular block builder Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition. Bethesda wrote on their official blog they are "fans of Minecraft", and that they are "very excited to be working with Mojang, Microsoft, 4J, and Notch to make this happen".

Developed by 4J Studios, this is the second fully fledged Mash-Up pack following the recent Mass Effect pack. This new content pack will include a Skyrim themed texture set, 40 character skins, new beautifully themed menus and user interface, new items to craft and over 20 songs from Skyrim's excellent soundtrack. To get you started in this world, the developers will also be including small scale prefabricated renditions of Whiterun, Riverwood and Bleak Falls Barrow. Can you recognise the people and places in the following screenshots?
