The developer of 4J Studio’s Xbox ports of Minecraft reported that next mash-up pack will bring a Christmas-themed overhaul to the popular sandbox title. The Microsoft’s official gaming blog - Xbox Wire, explained what users will receive with the Wednesday’s launch of Minecraft's Festive Mash-up Pack.

Identically to the previous Minecraft pack offerings, the new Christmas DLC will let gamers change their personal Minecraft worlds entirely. The previous versions of mash-up packs have included content based upon on other famous video game franchises, such as Bethesda’s The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Bioware’s Mass Effect series.

Nevertheless, the newest mash-up pack DLC for Minecraft will feature the recreating of a wintery wonderland inspired by the present holiday season. Instead of introducing new character skins based upon existing licensed properties, the Festive Mash-up Pack will reward the fans of Minecraft with a series of genuine Christmas textures.

The new Minecraft DLC will add 36 new avatar skins in total, ranging from dressing characters in standard winter-wear to offering users the opportunity to dress their Minecraft figures up as icon Christmas personalities such as Santa Claus or his elves. Additionally to fixing the appearance of the player’s avatar, the Festive Mash-up Pack will modify the visual looks of Minecraft’s dangerous enemies, as well as the textures of the game’s block world itself.

The whole map of Minecraft will be filled with snow and trees lit in a typical Christmas mood. In addition, the original Minecraft soundtrack has been replaced with music which has much more of a holiday atmosphere.

The Festive Mash-up Pack will be coming out on the Xbox One and Xbox 360 on Wednesday. Nevertheless, the Xbox Wire announced that the Minecraft DLC will also be launching on other platforms in the future. Microsoft Studios’ Roger Carpenter, who has served as the lead producer on both Xbox versions of Minecraft, tweeted to its fans that the Christmas mash-up pack DLC will be soon heading to the Playstation 4, Playstation 3 and PS Vita as well.

The new mash-up pack is the second Minecraft DLC that 4J Studios has gifted fans with in as many weeks. Last month, the Inquisitr announced that 55 new avatar skins have been added by the Star Wars Classic Skin Pack to the Minecraft's Xbox One and Xbox 360 versions. However, there hasn’t been any mention as to whether the developer plans to bring the Star Wars DLC to Minecraft‘s Playstation editions as well.

The first consoles of Minecraft were launched two years ago, starting with the title’s Xbox 360 port. Since then, Minecraft has also been released on the Playstation 3 followed this year by the series’ launch on Xbox One, PS4, and PS Vita. The Festive Mash-up Pack is expected on first Minecraft‘s Xbox versions on December 10, this year.
