It was just announced on the official Minecraft web page that the Magic the Gathering skin pack is now available for players to download. Out now exclusively for the Pocket and Windows 10 editions of Minecraft, the creators promised that console variations would be on their way in the near future.
The title of the DLC pack eloquently explains what users can expect from it, dressing up the characters from Minecraft in various Magic: the Gathering skins. Fans of the iconic card game will recognize all the skins as they have crafted some of the most legendary characters from the game. Including, Avacyn, Ajani Goldmane, and Liliana Vess.
To get a glimpse of what is in store for these skins, players have the opportunity to use some of them with no fee. Then, if they fall in love with them, they can purchase the remaining skins for a few dollars. However, as one of the skin artists alluded to, this was far from a simple task.
Sarah Kisor, one of the artists responsible for this creation, noted how the most difficult aspect of this development was simplifying the complexity of the Magic: the Gathering characters. As Minecraft textures are all rendered in blocks, Kisor mentions how they needed to focus on the most famous characteristics to make them recognizable to the fan base. Even though it proved to be a hard feat, Kisor did express the enjoyment she had crafting the skins.
In total, players can download 15 skins to choose and play with. For only $2.99 CAD, it would be a wise investment for any who are enthusiasts of both Minecraft and Magic: the Gathering.
