Minecraft Mass Effect

Minecraft's getting two new DLC packs this week on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. Alongside the not-that-interesting Pattern Texture Pack, which applies soft colours and knitted animals to your blocky world, you'll also be able to jet into space with the Mass Effect Mash-Up Pack.

As its name suggests, this will coat the release in textures that resemble BioWare's sci-fi property, complete with a whopping 36 character skins, 22 music tracks, and a new user interface theme. Both packs will be available to download this week in North America and Europe, presumably after the weekly store updates have been rolled out.

Will you be hunting down retro-looking Reapers? Build your own Normandy and blast off into the sun in the comments section below.
