Introducing; Minecraft Add-ons!

Today, Minecraft announced it will be introducing Add-ons to the Minecraft Marketplace for Minecraft Bedrock edition.

Add-ons are like mods – they change the way that things in the game look and behave – and unlike a lot of other Marketplace content, they can be applied to your existing worlds. With Add-Ons, you can add custom blocks, items, mobs, recipes, and other game content to your worlds. For example, an Add-on might create a gravestone where a player dies, safely storing their items until broken, or add a portal that players can build to connect two points in the overworld. Add-ons can be applied to multiplayer worlds and Realms, and only the world owner needs to own the Add-on. In addition, we want to emphasise that players can continue installing non-Marketplace mods — We have no plans to remove the ability to sideload mods from popular third-party websites or mobile apps that are compliant with the Minecraft End-User License Agreement (EULA).

Think of this initial launch as a “snapshot” of what Add-ons will look like in the future – a preview meant to test them out and gather feedback from the community with more to come later this year.

For the full announcement, including a list of Add-ons that are available now in the Minecraft Marketplace, please see today’s blog post.
